Is anyone else listening to this? If so, here's a thread where we can discuss it. If not it's been a great series so far so if you're looking for a podcast, I recommend it.
I recently finished episode 10.65, the latest is 10.66, but if you're behind that's ok, I'm interested in people's thoughts on any episode. So just feel free to post on whatever episode you want in any order.
Even though it's episode 66 we're only in April 1917. So it's a deep dive!
Edit: To clarify, he starts with Russian history back as far as the 9th century (if I recall correctly), going over that history quickly and then starts slowing down and getting more detailed by about the 18th century, so it's not like it's been 60+ episodes on the February revolution. That starts with episode 10.62.
I have no idea what Mike Duncan's politics are but so far he seems unbiased in his presentation of history (to the extent such thing is even possible); he tends to give the perspective of different actors in each event, without taking sides. I might feel differently once we start getting into October and beyond, though. We'll see if I sour on him or not but for now I'm loving it.
Mike Duncan also has done a podcast series on various other revolutions, which I'm interested in listening to in the future, perhaps sooner than later.
1. English Revolution
2. American Revolution
3. French Revolution
4. Haitian Revolution
5. Spanish American wars of independence
6. July Revolution
7. Revolutions of 1848
8. Paris Commune
9. Mexican Revolution
