    GUEST PODCAST - Robert Walsh on the Rosenbergs

    GUEST PODCAST - Robert Walsh on the Rosenbergs

    PLEASE LEAVE A REVIEWContinuing our focus on historical scandal, this week I interview Robert Walsh about one of the biggest espionage scandals in American history. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were convicted of and executed for the crime of passing American secrets to the Soviets at the beginning of the Cold War. How did they get involved in such a dangerous mission? Were they both actually guilty? What was the reaction around the world to their deaths? Robert and Tom discuss all of that, and more.Robert's twitter - @ScribeCrimeRobert's website - https://crimescribe.com/The Ministry of History is a podcast that aims to take a look at some of history's lesser known characters and stories.

    George IV and 'Queen' Caroline

    George IV and 'Queen' Caroline

    PLEASE LEAVE A REVIEWCarrying on with our focus on historical scandal, this week we are heading back to early 19th century Britain. George IV had only recently become King, and now his wife, Caroline, wanted to join him. The problem? George hated his wife, and didn't want her anywhere near the crown. So began his clumsy attempt to secure a divorce, and one of the biggest scandals of the 19th century.The Ministry of History is a podcast that aims to take a look at some of history's lesser known characters and stories.

    Watergate

    Watergate

    PLEASE LEAVE A REVIEW Series two of the Ministry of History podcast is all about historical scandal, and we're starting off with a big one. In 1971, President Richard Nixon commissioned a shady group of 'fixers' to work on his behalf, and in 1972 they broke into the Democratic National Committee Headquarters at Washington's Watergate hotel. The crime, and the cover-up, led to one of the biggest scandals in American history, and the only resignation of a President.Much has been written and said about Watergate, but in this podcast Tom aims to analyse Nixon as a person - his childhood, his background, his character traits - and assess how this both enabled him to rise to the very top but also ensured that he would suffer a humiliating fall from grace.
