Still the best

Still the best history podcast around! A variety of topics are covered and while the coverage isn't super in depth because of the format, it does allow you to research more on your own. Which is great cause you get to hear about a lot and can look into a topic further if it interests you.

Love love love

I am a lover of history and this podcast explores topics that are either briefly touched upon or not at all. Whether I am home or out and about I love being able to escape into the depths of history!

A favourite among history podcasts

An interesting podcast on varied subjects and people in history. I know it's startling when the hosts you're used to listen change in a podcast, but I find that all the hosts are interesting and pleasant to listen to.
