Premise: Mike Duncan tells the story of world revolutions in a chronological order.

Things done right: Duncan has a style and a polished format that tells the story in a clear and easy to follow manner. He  is able to weave a very complicated story relatively seamlessly and effortlessly in such a way where you are never lost or fear of falling behind. Duncan also has a conversational tone and even though he is reading you can tell he has been doing this a long time and he never sounds like he is reading a script for the third time this morning.

Things done Wrong“: Let me be clear- Any negative thoughts I would have on this podcast would be picking nits, since this is pretty much on anyone’s list of respected hosts and active podcast, If I was to pick one, it would be his tendency to miss characters, and have to come back to them. I would almost rather get a pause in the narrative to introduce the main figures of the next “arc” in the story, then squeeze a bio into the story, it does hurt the flow, but again, its not going to stop me from loving this one.

Inaccuracies: I am far from an Expert of either the  American or the French civil war. Maybe once he gets to the Russian or one of the others, Based on his track record, I would be a little surprised to find any errors, other than a pronunciation error.

Summary: Without any reservation. Mike Duncan is considered a Gold Standard for his work, and his second series is a major reason why.

David’s Score: 10/10
