Podcast the past

I love listening to these podcasts, it is my pod before bedtime, in the dark and listening to what went on. I would be upset if it was stopped.

Needs more researching!

Guys, you can make the stories much more engaging by doing more background research. So, for example, in episode 3, how did the newspaper report the mining accident. Were all those killed buried in the same churchyard or cemetery. How long was Mr Humble trading as a grocer (how big was his shop - the census will say if he had employees, and maybe there is a surviving photo of the shop or at least the street). The assize records should say whether the guy who stole horse manure was convicted and if so what his sentence was...get the idea? It’s a great idea for a podcast, but at the moment it’s underwhelming.
