2008 Cliopatria Awards announced. These awards are given for the best History Blogs. Winners this year include: The Edge of the American West (best group blog), Wynken de Worde (best new blog), and Northwest History ( best individual blog) by mefi's own LarryC.

One winner I've enjoyed is Zunguzungu, this year's winner for best writer. I particularly like his essay on colonialism in Heart of Darkness, A Few Good Men, and The Searchers.

Any good history podcasts? I already got Dan Carlin's Hardcore History and The History of Rome.

I'm not a podcast kind of guy, but HNN has some interesting sounding ones here.

Good to see these posted here. I was one of the people who nominated Wynken de Worde and was really pleased it picked up an award - it's a really thoughtful and interesting blog. And congrats also to LarryC, whose comments here I've always found insightful and whose blog seems just as good.

Thanks all! I steal most of my content from you.

Who else among us has a history themed blog?
