The story of how a primate species created a world full of skyscrapers, airplanes, nuclear weapons, and vaccines. From the mass production of cotton weaving in the first industrial revolution of the 18th Century, to the digital revolution of today, this podcast will explore the ways our world has rapidly changed.

Springtime of the Peoples
In 1848, the effects of the industrialization and financial modernization combined with the forces of burgeoning ideologies and class and national identities to create a year of revolutions. Uprisings against the existing order swept across Continental Europe – although these missions failed almost everywhere. It marked a turning point in world history – a flashpoint in the political and economic transitions underway – and for us, it will mark the end of the First Industrial Revolution.

Victoria and Albert
Telling the story of the Industrial Revolution would not be complete without spending some time on Queen Victoria and her consort, Prince Albert. Her long reign came at the height of British power and, together with her hard-working husband, she forged a legacy that embraced change. Under her rule, the economy was modernized, the constitution became more democratic, and the country promoted new learning and new technology.

Faith, Fashion, Food, and Football
The second of two episodes devoted to the cultural changes underway in the 18th and 19th Centuries, thanks (at least in part) to the Industrial Revolution. First we’ll explore the so-called Second Great Awakening, which spurred a diversity of religious traditions in the United States. Then we’ll discuss the impact of industrialization on fashion trends (and vice versa). Next, we’ll talk about the changing diets of ordinary people in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. Finally, we’ll wrap up with the history of football.

Cracking show on a crucial topic
If you never realised how vital the industrial revolution really was, how it fundamentally changed the planet and everyone on it, well you need to listen to this show. Attention to detail combined with clear insight and perfect pacing mean Dave crams a ton of information in without ever overloading you or making you bored.
This is the way it should have been taught in school, and I’d urge everyone to give this podcast a go.
