I agree, I'd rather have 10 x 2 hour episodes released on a regular schedule than 4 x 5 hour ones that appear only every once in a while.

I've thought that for a long time. Really i'd like half an hour a week. It's quite difficult to keep listening and take everything in when it's as long as it is now.

I'm currently listening to The History of Rome and although it's a long finished series I can just binge, each ep is 15-20 minutes long which is perfect length when you're dealing with complex historical structures and events.

I love Carlin, he's an unmatched orator, but I wish he'd go down that route.

I forget his name, but the History of Rome guy followed it up with a series called “Revolutions” which is excellent. He’s currently on the Russian revolution but has done the American, French, Haitian and Mexican revolutions.

I just heard about his Fall of the Roman Republic book. One to get?

Oh gooseberry fool, Dan Carlin has a book now! :0

The latest addendum is great. It’s the story of Olympias, the mother of Alexander the Great.

Maybe it's just been a while since I listened to a series,but I'm loving this Supernova in the East run. Never had a huge interest in the period but finding out how things led to Pearl Harbour is fascinating.
