History for busy people

Love history but dont have the time to read for hours, or watch episodes on particular topics? I have come across some great websites that offer short snappy snippets of history, either as text, ebook or podcast.

Two I like are a website Historyin an hour; history for busy people http://www.historyinanhour.com/ and Stuff you missed in history class http://blogs.howstuffworks.com/category/stuff-you-missed-in-history-class/ .

Stuff you missed in history class give you 15-20 minute podcasts, that you can down load for free on specific topics and listen to them while working, on the bus to work or just before you go to sleep. They choose interesting topics and make it entertaining.

History in an hour provides blog posts on topics or ebooks that cost a few dollars to download. The variety of ways history can be presented with new technology, just makes me love it more.
