About Us

Everywhere around us are echoes of the past. Those echoes define the boundaries of states and countries, how we pray and how we fight. They determine what money we spend and how we earn it at work, what language we speak and how we raise our children. From Wondery, host Patrick Wyman, PhD (“Fall Of Rome”) helps us understand our world and how it got to be the way it is.

The Ottomans, the Safavids, and the War for the Muslim World, 1501-1514

The Muslim world was a vast and diverse place, home to a variety of traditions and schools of thought. The Safavids began as a brotherhood of Sufi mystics, but soon transformed themselves from a religious order to the seeds of a powerful extremist state in Iran under the leadership of a teenaged prodigy, Shah Ismail I. A clash with the Ottomans and Selim the Grim was inevitable. Support us by supporting our sponsors: Upstart - Go to upstart.com/tides to find out how low your rate could be today.

The Ottomans, the Safavids, and the War for the Muslim World, 1501-1514

The Ottomans, the Mamluks, and the Clash for Control of the Muslim World

While the Ottoman Empire spent most of its early history expanding into Christian Europe, it also faced east, toward the vast, wealthy, and dynamic Muslim world. As the Ottomans grew in prestige and power, a clash with the Mamluks of Egypt for supremacy became inevitable. Support us by supporting our sponsors! SimpliSafe - Visit simplisafe.com/tides.

Pilgrims, Puritans, and the Battle for New England: Interview with Historian Peter Mancall

The Pilgrims and the Puritans dominate our understanding not just of early New England, but also early America and the entire future course of American history. Yet their success and long-term influence weren't foreordained, and they weren't inevitable. Peter Mancall, Harmsworth Professor of American History at Oxford and Mellon Professor of the Humanities at USC, joins us to talk about his new book, The Trials of Thomas Morton: An Anglican Lawyer, His Puritan Foes, and the Battle for a New England.

Pilgrims, Puritans, and the Battle for New England: Interview with Historian Peter Mancall

The Rising Tide of the Ottoman Empire, 1453-1481

Mehmet the Conqueror captured Constantinople for the Ottoman Empire in 1453 and ended the thousand-year reign of the Byzantine Empire after an epic siege, but he was far from done. For the next three decades, Mehmet led Ottoman armies against Serbs, Hungarians, Venetians, Wallachians, and Turkoman tribesmen, expanding his empire and drenching two continents in blood and war.

Minisode: Is Netflix's "The King" Good History? And Winter Reading Recommendations!

Leah is back on the show today to discuss The King on Netflix starring Timothee Chalamet as King Henry V, our favorite Sadboi King, as he becomes the greatest king England's ever seen.

Watch it here. Thank you so much for listening to Tides, we are thankful for you.
