Tides of History

4.9/5

Critic Rating

Description

Everywhere around us are echoes of the past. Those echoes define the boundaries of states and countries, how we pray and how we fight. They determine what money we spend and how we earn it at work, what language we speak and how we raise our children. From Wondery, host Patrick Wyman, PhD (“Fall Of Rome”) helps us understand our world and how it got to be the way it is.


Critic Reviews

Robert Nease - Quill Inc. - Apr 24, 2020

"There are also any number of one-on-one interview episodes with noted historians and experts in a variety of fields that help the listener understand their writing and research. Some contributors even appear more than once and the chemistry between them and the host is a great contrast to the narrative episodes written and narrated by Wyman alone. I highly recommend this series for any listener who takes their History seriously, and wants to digest it in an entertaining way. But if you’re looking for a “Ra-Ra”cheerleader ‘cast about one particular region, ethnicity, creed or economic model this is not the one for you."
