The Pod­cast His­tory Of The World itunes.ap­ple.com/us/pod­cast/the-pod­cast-his­tory-of-our-world/ id558333993?mt=2 As host Rob Monaco, who de­scribes his po­si­tion when he be­gan The Pod­cast His­tory of The World as “a freshly un­em­ployed so­cial stud­ies teacher with a mas­ters de­gree and noth­ing to do” says, “What pos­sesses some­one to at­tempt an au­dio col­lec­tion of the en­tire his­tory of the world?” What in­deed? Pos­si­bly the same thing that leads to the pod­cast be­com­ing so suc­cess­ful — a kind of ex­u­ber­ant de­ter­mi­na­tion, and the abil­ity to find, and com­mu­ni­cate, a true pas­sion for his­tory. Monaco has cre­ated al­most 100 episodes, cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing from An­cient Greece, the Stone Age, Ne­olithic times and Rome, to the cre­ation of Is­rael and the legacy of Philip II. His de­liv­ery is amus­ing, his re­search ex­cel­lent, and abil­ity to put for­ward dif­fer­ent the­o­ries and schools of thought mean lis­ten­ers get a rounded view of each pe­riod. More, ap­par­ently, are in the pipe­line.
