Mike Duncan, that is, at the revolutionspodcast.com website.
He’s just embarked on the Haiti Revolution. He finished up a few months ago on the French Revolution (which took about a year), then took a few months off while his wife had their second baby. In recent years, he’s also covered the American Revolution and the English Civil War. He started off with the History of Rome, but that was before I started listening to him. All his podcasts are available on the site.
There’s nothing very high-tech or overly academic here; just a pleasant American voice, good story-telling, and an ability to draw out the narrative from a mass of details.
I’m glad he’s back and I’m happy to travel (mentally, at least) to the Caribbean for a few months.
Thanks for highlighting this – I’m researching an Irishman who spent time in St. Domingo/Haiti around the time of the revolution so will appreciate hearing some background.
& I’ve just listened to most of the first episode – it’s great!
That’s good. I’ve downloaded it but haven’t listened to it yet.
