I linked to the Europe from its Origins podcast earlier. It may not be for everyone since it uses a traditional European historical sensibility, big words, and fancy pants furrin’ pronunciation but since the ChicagoBoyz demographic skews older and wiser, it should give everyone something meaty to chew on (I’d put in your teeth first).
There was a problem with the iTunes link. That problem has been largely fixed (episode 10 points at an image but the link should be eventually correct). I’ve updated the links from my original post below the fold:

Thanks for the update!
Hey, where are my teeth…
Thanks for this, I had bookmarked the old post and went back a day or two ago to start listening to them and they were all broken as you know. This saves me some work. I plan on listening to one or two a week over the winter. Which starts soon around these parts.
“…over the winter. Which starts soon around these parts.” It’s started here – I’m having my first glass of sherry.
I listened to the first episode and it was very, very good.
I noticed he was using some imagery from the HBO series Rome. I think anyone who enjoys history and isn’t too easily offended by a bit sex, nudity, warfare, torture, pagan rituals and what have you, they would really enjoy it, as I did. Beautifully produced, written and acted. And at about $30 for 10 or so hours of entertainment, its hard to beat.
