Excellent & Entertaining History Podcast

This podcast is an interesting take on the great man theory of history, focusing on the stories and attributes of these figures — many of them common. Over the episodes, Ben Wilson has become a very good story teller, making this fun to listen to.

If you like the title you’ll love this podcast

Binged all the podcasts in a week because it’s so well done. I look forward to every new episode that comes out. Ben has a high content to word ratio and makes every minute count. Couldn’t recommend more🙌🏻

Growing obsessed

I began with the two Steve Job episodes. Absolutely loved both episodes. Stoked to listen to the rest. I hope 2021 will produce some great episodes! Update: coming up on a year of following and listening. I’ve re-listened to some episodes a couple times and can’t get enough. I’m excited for more episodes to be released


After a single episode recommendation I binged all of the episodes and even save new episodes for moments when I can focus and not be distracted. It’s hardcore history but modern. Its shorter, more frequent. More more more eps!

The best podcast ever

I love this podcast HTTOTW is my favorite and I look forward to every episode. I only wish he would do then weekly but I know they take alot of research to do. Keep it up!

Better than Most

I cannot say enough good things about this podcast. Each and every episode is incredibly well-researched and presented in an easily consumable and predominantly objective manner. I was thrilled to hear Ben will be able to dedicate more time to the podcast in the near future. The sky’s the limit, my friend.

Hands down the best

Best History Podcast of ALL Time!!! 👑

Do Not Listen to This Podcast.

Do not listen to this podcast if you hate well structured, well researched insight on some of the most impactful figures in history. I am an avid podcast listener, and since hearing about this pod from (MFM) I’ve been hooked. Fantastic job.

New favorite!

This is a must listen podcast.


The only issue is that I wish there were more episodes!

Amazing Podcast

Ben, you do phenomenal work. Heard about this from MFM podcast. I hope you’ll continue to produce these. Let your listeners know in future episodes how we can support.

Can’t get enough

Found out about this from the My First Million podcast. Can’t get enough. This is the only podcast I’ve ever listened to that I would actually pay for. I hope Ben can do this full time. Incredibly good

Very interesting

Well researched and well delivered. A very good listen.

Absolute fun and extremely informative

Impeccable show👑

This show is much need. Five stars ⭐️

Great listen

Found them through MFM podcast. Very well put together and binge worthy.

Great podcast

I’ve listened to one episode and I’m hooked. I’m going to go to first and listen to them all. Great information laid out in an interesting story.

My new favorite

Such a fantastic production. The narrative of each episode is easy to listen to, and easy to retain the information! I recently had a long road trip and got through the Caesar and Edison episodes. I loved telling my friends some of the stories learned. PLEASE keep the episodes coming!!

How to take over the world podcast

Very interesting and informational podcast. Not only is it entertaining to learn about how Kings became Kings, but the personality and traits they had that everyday people can try to implement.

The best.

First review of a podcast ever—this is one of the best history/bio/story telling podcast in the game. Napoleon was my favorite but you can’t go wrong with any of them.

Awesome - must listen

Awesome podcast - keep it up! Thanks Sam Parr for the recommendation.


So glad I heard about this podcast on my first million. I a huge fan of Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History and this is just as amazing. Can’t wait to listen to every episode available.
