About Trevor Culley


Welcome friends!

I'm Trevor Culley, host of the History of Persia podcast where I explore the history and culture of the ancient Persian empires.

My personal experience with both Persian history and podcasts began with an college extra credit assignment to listen to the first Hardcore History history episode on the Achaemenids. I was instantly enthralled with the stories of the Kings of Kings and coming a little late to the party, started listening to podcasts.
As I binged my way through both the History of Rome and early episodes of the History of Byzantium I was always excited for the episodes dealing with the Parthians and Sassanids. I'm sure some of you shared my surprise and disappointment to discover that there was not a similarly dedicated podcast dealing with the great empires east of Rome and Greece. So that brings us here. I've decided to personally create that dedicated podcast.

That's where you come in:

I'd love to drop everything and put everything I've got toward this podcast. Unfortunately, life goes on and life is busy. With your support, I'll be able to spend a little less time on all that other stuff, and a little more time on bringing you the History of Persia. With that support and little luck I look forward to delivering the whole history of Ancient Persia.
