Podcasts I’m enjoying for various reasons.
The Fall of Civilizations with Paul Cooper
A good non-fiction story, with the proper narrative, can be as riveting as any novel (case in point, A Woman of No Importance about Virginia Hall). Podcasts are no exception, including M’s latest discovery, The Fall of Civilizations with Paul Cooper.
Surprisingly, the podcast features a man named Paul Cooper discussing the fall of civilizations throughout history.
As we drove the foggy, mysterious Highway 101 along the Oregon Coast, we learned about the rise and fall of Roman Britain, and the atmosphere could not have been more perfect. The story is woven with epic qualities worthy of Game of Thrones, and enough historical facts to please the most ardent historian.
An epic scope, with stories told in a balanced, thoughtful way that did not fall prey to overly dramatic devices. Can’t wait to hear more.
