: In episode 8 of “The Heritage Podcast,” we journey along the banks of the flooded Huang Hu (or “Yellow”) River, where five dynasties–the Xia, the Shang, the Zhou, the Qin, and the Han–forged a unique civilization that remains today. From antiquity to year 0, dynastic history and achievements are emphasized; the philosophic developments of ancient China will follow in the next episode.
