The Fan of History podcast doubles its listenership again due to the Battle of Qarqar

I guess the Battle of Qarqar in 853 BC is a pretty monumental event. I was happy to talk to Brennon about it in the 23rd episode of the Fan of History podcast. Apparently you guys liked it as well as the listenership increased A LOT with this episode.

 You can find the episode here:

 It is also on itunes of course.

I joined the International Grand-Lodge of Druidism two days ago

After advice from a turfer friend I joined the order! Read more about it here: If you are interested I will tell you about my experiences in the order - except for the secret parts of course. Tonight I will swear never to tell anyone outside the order what happens in the grove itself!

The Fan of History Podcast episode 19

Just released a new episode of the Fan of History podcast with me and Brennon Rankin.

Its episode 19 - Greece in the Early 9th Century BC.

The Greeks will take center stage in our narrative in the future, but what are they up to in the days of Ashurnasirpal II?
Brennon and Dan have a look at the Greek world in the early 9th Century BC, before colonies, before the
Olympiad and long before some Roman decided to name the proud Hellenes "Greeks"
