An excellent history podcast for everybody

Today the BBC delivered the last chapter of A History of the World in 100 Objects (AHOW). This has been a most outstanding production made together with the British museum. In 100 chapters, led by looking at 100 objects, clustered in 20 themes, the director of the British Museum has retold us human history spanning 2 million years. It was effective, entertaining and highly informative in one blow. This history podcast is a delight for the discerning as well as for the occasionally interested.

Usually the BBC stores only a limited amount of podcast episodes in the feed, but AHOW is an exception. You subscribe now and can obtain the full hundred. Do so, I highly recommend it.
