    Robert Burns’ Brain

    Robert Burns’ Brain

    It is 1834. Can you learn how the human mind works by massaging the decomposing skull of Scotland's national poet, Robert Burns? The Dumfries Burns Club certainly seem to think so...

Small but perfectly formed

These podcasts are well researched, very professionally produced and, more importantly, really enjoyable. There’s lots of history podcasts out there but few manage to make their subject interesting, relevant and scattered with genuine chuckles. If Scotland is your thing, even a bit, suggest you get this in your ears.

Fantastic podcast!

Found this podcast on a bus journey from Edinburgh to Inverness on holiday on youtube and I have become instantly obsessed! So well delivered and immersive, very informative and interesting! Love, love, love. Will be recommending it to any history, or general, nerds.

A wee gem

The stories are always well chosen and varied and ones we’d never know about otherwise. Great delivery of well thought out scripts. Very effective music. Never disappointing. Thanks
