List of History Podcasts by Historians

If you are a podcast creator and a historian, please add your podcast to the appropriate slot(s)! This list is very flexible with the definition of “history” and “historians” too--if you’re on the outskirts of either of these categories, please add it anyway. Please only add shows that you yourself are involved in producing. (If there are no more rows, put your cursor in the bottom-rightmost cell of the table and press the Tab button. That should generate a new row.)[a]
