Italy's invasion of Greece was disastrous. With the British also advancing in North Africa, and a surprise air attack disabling three Italian battleships, it was no longer possible to pretend that Italy was a equal of Germany.

  • More entertaining than you’d think!

    Whether you’re looking for a refresher on all the history you forgot or a laundry list of things you weren’t taught, this is the podcast for you. Unlike high school history teaching a few highlights, this podcast has a natural flow. You don’t just get Teddy Roosevelt, you get The Spanish American War leading into McKinley’s assassination leading into Roosevelt, with a sidebar on Booker T Washington and Scott Joplin. The dry Dad humor is a bonus. I wish this man would do the 19th century next!

  • Move over Mike Duncan

    Excellent and thoughtful writing and long term planning. The premise of a chronology of such a well-documented period as the 20th century seems almost impossibly hard to execute but believe it or not, he’s doing it.

Mark Painter took me places that I never knew existed, and brought to life the people and characters of this time period in a way I’ve never seen. (I also enjoy the musical interludes.) For anyone who loves history-but especially the history of the last century-I hig... more

  • History of the Twentieth Century (updated)

    One of my favourite podcasts. Each podcast is well researched and Mark has a very engaging delivery -whimsical with an edge of irony. With a background in law and engineering, he has a real knack of explaining technical matters clearly and effectively. (I wish he had been my Science teacher!) He is also one of the few podcasters who is able to successfully integrate music into the podcast naturally so it is enhanced. I particularly enjoy his sense of humour and his ablility to link back to previ... more
