Interesting history lectures on iTunes?

I downloaded and have been listening to the 12 Byzantine Rulers lectures on iTunes. It's great. I would like to find similar content. I'm flying LAX-EWR tomorrow and would like some similar (free) iTunes downloads, preferably Byzantine, Central Asian or Medieval European history. Any recommendations? I'm probably not the only one flying cross-country this week, so hopefully others can benefit from the answers.

Some good content here, check out the social sciences for a couple of good history series: iTunes Berkeley.

Stanford, as well. It was all free at one time, though I couldn't say for sure now as I am no longer on iTunes.

I like Laqueur's History 5 a lot, but it starts from the post-medieval (or late medieval) period, so you'd probably be most interested in the opening handful. The iTunes version is the Spring series, but there's also a fall series: same topics, a few bits of changed emphasis.

(I'd suggest the BBC's In Our Time, except that the podcast doesn't archive old broadcasts.)

This was posted to projects awhile back, and it's pretty interesting.

History According to Bob is a clear and friendly history podcast. Topics vary wildly.

The BBC show "In Our Time" has a podcast which might interest you. By coincidence, the upcoming program is on the Siege of Constantinople -- right up your alley.

If you can use a bittorrent client,head over to The Pirate Bay to conduct a search using terms "The Teaching Company" or "TTC." There is a treasure trove of lectures to keep your mind engaged for a very long time.

Great Optimism,

I like Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcast.
