General Interest | BBC Radio 4 | Available on Apple Podcasts

With more than 1000 episodes covering history, culture, science, philosophy and religion, this excellent BBC Radio 4 series has something for everyone. Hosted by Melvyn Bragg since it began 25 years ago, each 45-minute programme includes thoughtful commentary and insights from a panel of up to three academic experts. If you are interested in Roman history, for example, try these episodes: Julius Caesar, Nero, Pliny’s Natural History, Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, Roman Slavery and Cleopatra. Each episode includes a reading list and ‘extra time’, where the panelists talk about matters they didn’t have time for in the main discussion. (Reviewed by David Youngmeyer)
