Awesome Podcasts

History podcasting is a pretty new thing. Although audiobooks have been around for quite a while, their organization, syntactic structure, dependence on footnotes and the like don't always translate particularly engaging content - especially if you're walking the dog or cleaning out the garage. Then history podcasting showed up. And luckily for all of us, some incredible people got in the game very early and began producing great content. These are just a few of them - ones that I happened to come across while commuting and jogging and stuff, who in turn inspired me.
