Iranologie.com is meant as a comprehensive site to provide information about Iranian history and culture. The site features basic information about Iran as a modern nation-state, a History Page that forms the main contents of the website, as well as research and popular articles on the subject of history. The site also functions as the host for the History of Iran podcast project.

Iranologie.com has been the personal project of Khodadad Rezakhani since 1996 and all its contents, including the podcast, are produced by its creator. This is indeed the main distinguishing feature of the site, and as such, it also serves the purpose of providing a web presence for its author. I hope you find the information included here useful, and I look forward to hearing your feedback.



  1. I am enjoying your podcasts, thank you very much for putting these together! When will you be posting episide 11 and the rest of the history of Syrus?

  2. I’m listening to the podcast for the first time. I’m using I tunes to listen to episode 2 but can find no link to get the map that is spoken of.

    Thanks for any help. I think I will enjoy the podcast but would like to get the visual side too.


  3. From a fellow UCLA grad (not a historian, though): please, please continue with the podcast! I miss it. I learned so much about the history of Iran from it, and it was interrupted too early in its story. Could you please bring it back?

  4. I discovered the podcast last night, but it stops in 2015, what happened? Life got in the way?
    why not continue – in the spirit of “The History of Rome” and “The History of Philosophy without any Gaps”?

  5. I hesitate to add my name to your list of followers as an old white man, surely not your preferred audience. Nevertheless, in your presentation, sometimes halting, always genuine, your erudition and humanity is evident throughout.

  6. I just caught up with the show today. It’s great. I wish more academic podcasters got institutional support like Peter Adamson.
