Another Great World History Podcast

The 15 Minute History Podcast from the University of Texas is awesome!

I just listened to one about The Russian Empire on the Eve of World War 1. The narrator discussed Russian concerns on the eve of the war with Dominic Lieven, a professor at London School of Economics and Political Science. Interestingly, one of Russia's major concerns prior to the war was Ukraine, which Russia saw as critical to its empire because of coal.

Other topics include the Trans-Pacific Slave Trade; Race, Slavery, and Abolition in Iran; and February Revolution of 1917. You can see a subject guide here.

Subscribe to the podcast in iTunes or Stitcher.

My thanks to AP World teacher, Bram Hubbell, for tweeting the link. He writes about other good podcasts in his blog which you can access here.

As easy as it might seem writing an essay online can be really a handful, especially if it is writing on the historical topic. It requires hard work and a lot of research. Fortunately, there are plenty of resources online and posts like this one that helps the teachers to make their students be motivated about learning history and writing about it. I am glad that you have included your research on the matter and some helpful tips if how to make the history more real and connected to the modern world. The links will surely be beneficial for the learners who want to get an insight on the real meaning of things if the past.
