Circle of History and Legacy of Empires

In this episode we talk to Michael Talbot, who is a historian and a senior lecturer at University of Greenwich. His analysis and insight into various human interactions and wider social phenomena bring listeners to novel perspectives. We also had Charlotte Sowerby in the house who herself is a history major and takes deep interest in this subject.

Michael's work examines a number of topics in Ottoman history from the late seventeenth to the early twentieth century, with a general interest in Ottoman relations and interactions with the wider world.
