About History of Greece

This is a monthly podcast about Ancient Greece from the Paleolithic to the Battle of Actium. It alternates between history and historical methodology, i.e. how we know what we know. started this podcast because I wanted to create a history of Greece that would parallel the wonderful and engaging History of Rome podcast that I enjoyed so much when I studied for my Roman history comprehensive exam. My aim here is to provide a detailed, but accessible, account of the history of Greece. The podcast form offers the opportunity to move beyond the various constraints by which a class on the same subject would be bound. I also hope to offer a story that can stand on its own without requiring supplementary reading. However, I will provide a bibliography for those who are interested as well as a list of supplementary resources.

I absolutely love making this podcast! It's a joy to write and research. I also love having the opportunity to reach out to people in the field and ask them about their work, and make what I hear about accessible to the public. However, this podcast takes a lot of time and effort to create. I am trying to keep up to date on the newest research, which is difficult in fields that are advancing at a rapid pace based on new discoveries and techniques  as well as fields which are way outside the scope of my training. The podcast also requires equipment, hosting, and research materials (my university library is good, but it sometimes fails to have the resources I need). I also need to provide some compensation for those people who have generously offered their help along the way. Pledges help me do all of these things and fund my habit of buying those books which I really desire or to which the library affords me limited, difficult, or no access. I am hoping to use pledges in the future to also help fund travel so that I can meet with scholars in the field and bring in more original research from hard-to-access sources.

Goals
$3 of $150 per episode
Once I reach $150/episode, I will upgrade my recording equipment for higher quality recordings! Once I get there, I will solicit recommendations about what equipment to buy! I will also purchase a domain name (rather than my currently free wordpress address).
