Oliver G. Writes…
Jason, I wanted to draw your attention to the history lessons that can be downloaded from the UC Berkeley website. I particularly enjoyed History 5 (Europe Civilization) and Infosys C103, History of Information (delivered by the iSchool, a very interesting school BTW). You can easily find those via iTunesU.
The “History of Information” series contains a small yet particulary intriguing bit about how the notion of and convention around TIME have changed over… time.
What about a podcast on the history of time (I know it sounds ironic but it is fascinating, e.g. Gregorian calendar, GMT, atomic clock)?
Oliver, sounds great. Thanks for the links. And I will add your email to the blog so others can hear about these great podcasts. I’ll put your requests on the list.
Other history podcasts from Berkeley:
History 4A The Ancient Mediterranean World
History 167B The Rise and Fall of the Second Reich (three day delay)
A list of all Berkeley’s podcasts.
Well, no big surprises here. Guys are geeks and geeks listen to podcasts. Whatever gender you are, we are happy to have you listening to the podcast. And we can all take this as a reminder to let our female friends know about the wonder of podcasts. Is history a topic that men are more interested in? Thoughts, opinions post them in the comments.
The Byzantine Empire, a request form John Birkhead via email. John is also a podcaster. You can listen to his podcast at desertcastshow.com.
This is a very big topic and this episode is just an introduction to this vast subject. Please see the links below for more information about the Byzantine Empire. To find out how to can help those in Southern California currently battling the fires, please visit the Red Cross.

The Russo-Turkish War (1877–1878)
by Christian Petrie
The Russo-Turkish War of 1877 to 1878 was the last war fought between the Russians and the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century. This war was primarily fought between the Russians and the Ottoman Empire over the issue of the Balkans. The origins of the war started almost a decade before the war began.

This will be the first installment of “Who’s Listening?”. In these posts I will put up some information that all of the listeners provided via a survey that I had up on the old website.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey! I will post more data as soon as I have time to put it together. There was a lot!
Today, here is the information on the age groups of listeners that took the survey. Looks like the show is attracting a lot of younger people. Nice to see you are all interested in history.
