History Applied!!

I feel as though the practices of successful characteristics are clearly outlined. Vision. Hard work. Resilience. Eccentricity. And it’s embodied in the storytelling of adversity and triumph.

Best podcast EVER!!!

Edutainment at its best!

This is a stellar pod. And plenty useful for anyone curious about power, potential and history. I feel it’s the superior cousin to my own Career Blindspot Podcast. Highly recommend for those looking to navigate their career!

One of the best podcasts

Ben is so good. This is a fantastic podcast.

Great podcast

Great listen and summaries provide. Thanks for the work.

LOVE letter from a non history lover 🤩

I was never a history lover…. My dad was… he has a ton of biographies… always raving about them… about the lessons in them… but I always rejected them for some reason. Not sure why. Even though I knew they had incredible lessons in them. But then, I found How To Take Over The World and got HOOKED. Ben has an incredible ability to break down history in an easy and entertaining way so WE can take over the world ourselves. As an entrepreneur, business owner, and podcaster myself I appreciate deeply this lessons Ben is able to extract from personalities in history! Definitely a show everyone needs in their rotation! Thanks for creating this masterpiece! Luis


I started listening to this podcast in the very early stages as a friend referred me to it. The way Ben produces these are so easy to digest and fun to listen to. More than that it’s inspiring and ambitious. I love every second and get excited when new episodes come out.. he doesn’t just stuff content out there. Only the most high quality content is ever published. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

My new favorite podcast

I was recently turned into this podcast by a friend and figured I’d give a listen. I’ve always been interested in history but have never been much of a reader. This podcast is now my go-to for any drives or when walking the dog. My only concern is that I’m almost through them all…so Ben may need to clone himself to pump episodes out more quickly haha! Overall great podcast and thank you for reigniting my interest in history!

One of the most underrated pods

One of the best podcasts, period. Clearly an incredible amount of work put into every episode. Ben is going to be huge one day.

Great podcast

Ben Wilson is an amazing narrator and a great story teller. Listened to all of them and can’t wait for new ones to come out.


My favorite podcast, informative, insightful, funny, engaging. I find myself volunteering to drive places so I can listen to the podcast in the car.

Pure Quality

The best sound quality and content. Ben Wilson really hits it out of the park. Favorite podcast easily.

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.

Such a great podcast! Well thought out, organized, and full of amazing information. The recording quality is superb. I’d give the podcast a 10/10 all around!

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!!! 👑

My new favorite

Love this Podcast

Love the information and how it is presented. A fantastic listen!

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.
