- Revolutions by Mike Duncan (Spotify | Apple Podcasts) - Recommended by our volunteer, Paul T. "Over many episodes, he reviews in detail many different types of revolutions in history. You get a real sense of how societies in upheaval can go in different directions depending on various factors. I think the climate crisis will be bringing more upheaval than anyone alive has seen and perhaps more than anyone in history has experienced; being familiar with this type of history could provide us valuable lessons for the present and future, I think."
