Since 2010, Laszlo Montgomery has presented The China History Podcast, bringing you the greatest hits from ancient and modern Chinese History. 

Feb 8, 2021

This topic was coming sooner or later.  Laszlo offers up another general overview of Chinese history, this time with eunuchs serving as the prism to view it all.  In this episode we'll look at the story of the maybe/maybe not eunuch/official from the Qin Dynasty Zhao Gao and his antics trying to cover up the sudden and unexpected death of Qin Shihuang.  Then we'll finish off with eunuchs in the Later Han including the rise and fall of the Ten Attendants.
