History: Tom Assheton and James Jackson explore the past. Man has led a bloody charge through the millennia, and we have a good look at why. Why so violent. What happened to bring about these bloody events. We discuss, we interview, and we explain how it is that history so often explodes into violence.

But hey, it's not all doom and gloom: we have dogs in action, mad dictators, and brave and unsung heroes. We have Bloody Battles, Bloody Objects and some shorter Bloody Bites. History is our hinterland, the past that influences our present and future.

It will be Bloody, it will be Violent ... so it goes

History the way you wish you’d learnt it

I’d never been much of a history lover and shied away from it at school but having been recommended this podcast via a dear friend, I’m now addicted!
I so wish I’d been taught these topics this way sooner as I now find I’m retaining so many more facts and points of interest that I then research further.
Thank you ‘bloody violent history’ for keeping me company on walks, whilst cooking, driving and even in the gym (when I would once have listened to mindless beats instead).
Keep these episodes coming!
