Knowing that I'm not the only person on here who habitually listens to the Mike Duncan and Dan Carlin podcasts - I've just found another history podcast I quite like that I don't think has been mentioned on here. It's the 'History of the Twentieth Century' podcast by Mark Painter - it has very consciously the same tone as Duncan's, with quite a bit of humor (which works for me, and probably less so for some of you); a heavy dose of music from the period also (he has a long running gag going built around 'Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight'). He's 45 weekly episodes in, and has made it up to 1908 or so.
I'm listening to an episode right now (#21)that's backed up to discuss the Resorgimento right now. He's covered the Boxers in detail, also Cuba and the Philippines. There's a six episode series on the Russo-Japanese War coming up that I'm looking forward too - particular since he notes on his webpage that one of his primary inspirations on this section is Red Sun Rising.
If you need a new podcast to try, give this one a listen. Webpage is http://historyofthetwentiethcentury.com/
