This is cool! A secondary school history teacher in the US puts up a series of lectures about the Byzantine Empire, and it zooms to the top of the podcast charts. I tuned in to 3 of the lectures on my way to work yesterday, and I think it's great. He is well-spoken and conducts the lectures in a conversational style which is very easy on the ears. Plus the way he tells the story focuses on the leading characters and the *ahem* byzantine plotting going around, which makes it much more interesting!
