Well, this was a fitting end for a great series.

Thank you for being a part of my life for the last few years.

"A /little/ how and why thrown in for good measure." *Glances pointedly at the 8 episode prologue of season 10* To quote a famous spainyard: "I do not think that word means what you think it means."

Jokes aside this is far and away my favorite podcast. You have done a spectacular job both /with/ your work and /for/ your field(fields?). It has been an utter joy spending a few hundred hours of my life listening to you and I am a better person for it. See you on the other side.

Shane Doherty

Thank you for being a staple of our lives through these interesting times. I hope you enjoy whatever comes next.


Was that sentence about Beria completely sarcastic???

D Xibille

Thank you very much for your hard work and for turning it into a great podcast


Miss you much.
Thank You very much.


Here endeth the lesson.

Well, now the logical next step is to go watch Armando Iannucci's Death of Stalin. Again.

John Corey

Thank you so much for this amazing podcast


Sad to see the end of Revolutions but this was a fantastic final episode. Thanks for all the amazing work you’ve done over the years.


I gave you a standing ovation in my living room as the episode wrapped. Much to the confusion of the doggo. :)

Thank you for all of the amazing learning, the incredible stories, and all of the other things for which there are simply not enough superlatives!

tl;dr you rock


I’ve enjoyed the past ten seasons, and THoR before that! Hope to see you in Houston!


It's been a wonderful ride with you, Mike. Many thanks for all the episodes and knowledge you've spread. Good luck on future endeavors.

Samuel Conner

Its been a long, wonderful trip it has been. Thank you for this wonderful lesson in history. But why no mention of Nikolai Krylenko? Without him there is no Botvinnik, Spassky, Karpov, and the rest...


To honor the legacy of the podcast, I feel I need to chime in with a pedantic comment:

The quote “socialism without liberty is slavery” was a conundrum from Bakunin, not Bukharin.

Thanks for all of it!


Thanks for this awesome podcast and all your work on THoR before this. One detail that hasnt found its way into this episode is the fate of Krupskaya, widow of Lenin and one of the last of the Old Bolsheviks, managing to survive the worst of the purges until conviniently dying the day after her 70th Birthday in 1939 (very conviniently)...and having the great honour of having a chocolate named after her.


This has been an amazing journey that i basically binged over the last year or so. I tried to pace myself for fear it would end too soon - and now it really has. Thank you for the work, the effort and the endlessly entertaining history lessons.
For one final question - can you recommend any podcasts that pick up the mantle where you leave off - and talk more in depth about the great terror and/or the cold war? I've tried a few, but none compare to Revolutions.

Michael Adams

I've been listening to your podcasts since the early days of History of Rome. Thank you so much for the amazing journey through time. I started listening to your podcasts as a construction worker to pass the time on the job. Your work showed me how much I love history and I ended up going back to college as a forty year old man. I'm now a history teacher at a high school in New Mexico. Thanks again, you have made a huge impact on my life.


!!!Chapeau Bas!!!
