The comedy podcast that takes history seriously. Greg Jenner brings together the best names in comedy and history to learn and laugh about the past.

    Ancient Athenian Democracy

    Ancient Athenian Democracy

    Greg Jenner is joined in Ancient Greece by special guests Prof Michael Scott and comedian Alice Fraser as they examine the start of democracy with the Athenians. Aside from it obviously being a system that only benefitted men, they find out why you’d want to avoid red ropes and broken pots and why the Romans disliked the very idea of it. And they take a look at some of the fundamental issues with democracy that still exist today.

    You’re Dead To Me is a production by The Athletic for BBC Radio 4.

    The Bayeux Tapestry

    The Bayeux Tapestry

    Greg Jenner is joined by special guests Dr Janina Ramirez and Lou Sanders in 11th-century Europe to take a close look at the Bayeux Tapestry. They explore the history of this famous artefact which is in fact, not a tapestry at all! Who commissioned it, and more importantly who made it and where? Is the famous image of the death of Harold II accurate or have we been missing another part of the picture? What are the often overlooked margins of the Bayeux Tapestry trying to tell us and above all, how on earth has this extraordinary piece of history survived all these years?

    Hatshepsut

    Hatshepsut

    Greg Jenner is joined by special guests Kemah Bob and Dr Campbell Price as they head back to Ancient Egypt to meet the unique and powerful ruler, Hatshepsut. She reigned for over 20 years, built a temple which is still admired today, had a ‘special’ relationship with statues and was one of the first rulers to focus on divinity rather than gender norms. So why did history try to erase her?

    Frederick the Great of Prussia

    Frederick the Great of Prussia

    Greg Jenner is joined by special guests Stephen Fry and Dr Bodie Ashton as they travel back to 18th-century Prussia to meet Frederick the Great. Widely known for making Prussia a military power as well as modernising and liberalising culture, Frederick was a complicated character, shaped by a tragic childhood ruled by his cruel father. We’ll uncover why he wasn’t the greatest ally to neighbouring countries, why forks enraged his father, and answer the crucial question of whether it’s King of Prussia or King in Prussia.

    Medieval Christmas

    Medieval Christmas

    Greg and his guests Miles Jupp and Dr Eleanor Janega go back to the medieval Christmas for this one-off festive special. We look at the history and traditions that have thankfully continued through the ages, like gift-giving and stuffed wild boars (although numbers on stuffed wild boar we're told are down from previous years) and some that have mysteriously fallen off from the radar completely, like the masked carol singers and jellied eels.

Amazing podcast

I love the idea of mixing history with comedians. I feel I learn so much more through the laughs and questions that comedians raise. The historians are brilliant because they highlight some aspects that are not often taught in school. Overall a wonderful experience and a podcast I look forward to listening every Friday.
