Click on this link for a PDF annotated list of history podcasts to which I am subscribed. I hope you will find some new ones that will become your favorites as well. I have been inspired by many other great history podcasts. I have a particular interest in World War One and World War Two. Also, several dealing with interviews of people who survived The Holocust. Several of the independent history podcasters have given me permission to rebroadcast a few of their episodes. I am very grateful for their contribution to the students in my history class.

Thank you for your interest in the podcast created by my students and me. It has been a labor of love since 2006. I recently changed to Libsyn to host the podcast. That you see nearly 240 episodes uploaded for all 13 seasons since 2006. While the primary purpose of this podcast was to serve as a study support for the students as they prepared for major exams, they also had opportunity to create special podcasts. This may be of the highest interest to you. You can easily find the special podcasts by using the “categories” tab in you visit the podcast blog page at http://thenandnow.org the tab is located in the upper-left side just below the podcast banner image. You can also identity these podcasts if looking at those downloaded by looking for “Special Podcast”, “Music Video…” or something like that rather than referring to the week’s topic (WWII..)
