I enjoy listening to podcasts these days, especially ones that are free. One such podcast that I've enjoyed listening to is "History on air". As the name suggests the podcasts are all history related (duh!) and they cover a wide range of subjects and people such as the American Civil War and Queen Elizabeth Numero Uno (That's "one" for you non-Italian speakers). My personal favourite episodes are "The Battle of Blair Mountain" and "The floating whorehouse".
History on air is hosted by Jason Watts and he is a amateur historian. He does a good job in researching all of his topics and also provides all the relevant sources/links to all of his podcasts. The sound quality of the podcasts are somewhat poor in the first few episodes though over time it improves thanks to a investment on a decent microphone on Jason Watts part. Besides Jason Watts there are also several other co-hosts who also contribute to the podcast one of which is his wife (Michelle, I think). I enjoy listening to one co-host who has a lovely Southern accent.
The "History on air"archive contains 118 episodes each of which can be downloaded for FREE. Regrettably the podcasts haven't been updated in quite awhile; the last episode was uploaded over a year ago. Hopefully this hiatus is only temporary and while the there are no new episodes being added the "History on air" website is still regularly updated with articles, though I still prefer listening to the podcasts, even with all the mispronunciations.
I was searching Flickr for an appropriate image to accompany this podcast and searched "History" but didn't find anything that stood out. Just out of curiosity I typed "Jason Watts" and lo and behold a few photos popped up. That just goes to show that you should never give up.
