What We’re Listening To

Every once in a while, John and I are asked what podcasts we listen to.  Like most podcast consumers, our tastes evolve and change over time. At each of the Quarter Courts, we set aside a few minutes to highlight some of our current favorites.  Rather than lose these suggestions and their links in an old post, I thought it might be a good idea to create a separate page called “What We’re Listening To.”  Check in here for updates as John and I discover new podcasts.  Feel free to share your recommendations in the comments.

  1. Greetings!
    Big fan of the podcast, I use it to fill in the many holes in my education.
    I have a blog titled “Mark’s Viking Wisdom” which seeks to be a bit of a weekly devotional/motivational journal using quotes and passages from the sagas.
    It is a non-mystical take on the “boot-strapping” ethic, individualist philosophy, and life-embracing passages riddled throughout these epics.
    If it sounds of interest, you can have a look here: https://marksvikingwisdom.blogspot.com/
    If the idiosyncratic, non-academic take is not your cup of tea, no worries.
    Keep up the great work—always inspiring!

  2. Love the podcast, been listening for about a year, and I’m finally almost caught up!
    Some recommendations!
    Podcast: The History of Byzantium (Robin Pierson). Just excellent, spiritual successor to Duncan’s legendary History of Rome.
    Also, the greatest lecture series ever: The History of the English Language (Prof. Seth Lerer – https://www.thegreatcourses.com/courses/history-of-the-english-language-2nd-edition.html) and – hmm, actually *anything* – by Professor Kenneth Harl. (https://www.thegreatcourses.com/search/?q=kenneth+harl)
    If you don’t know of these yet, you’re in for a treat – they are apt to slice your buttocks right off.

    lastly, just to piss you off: https://youtu.be/02sroZqq12I
