The History in Film podcast was launched in November 2017. New episodes are released every Tuesday. My goal is to cover world history one movie at a time. We’ll proceed chronologically, from creation and the surrounding mythology to the 21st century and the Internet age.  I had initially planned to make the list exactly 100 or 101 episodes, but between bonus episodes and other movies that have popped up during development, I’m now just saying, “100 or so.” I hope you’ll check it out and give me some feedback. If the world history project goes well, I hope to tackle American history next (though plenty of American history will no doubt come up during our discussion of world history).

Available on iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Play.
