More than six million people in the world today practice rituals developed before the Roman Empire, before Alexander the Great, before Buddha. An d millions more trace their ancestry to the Maya of Southern Mexico and Central America. These original Americans built cities so great that the Spanish conquerors thought the must have been built by Europeans or beings from another world. Then, hundreds of years before Columbus, most of their cities lay abandoned.

This guy is a gentler Dan Carlin; he puts your in the head of people in the era rather than listing events. And FINALLY a history show on the Americas. I am South American and while I appreciate the cultural legacy talked about in Eurasian history podcasts I have been searching for something more local. Great show. I hope it gets big.
