    Chamberlain, Churchill and the Road to War (with The Freaking Hambone Podcast)

    Chamberlain, Churchill and the Road to War (with The Freaking Hambone Podcast)

    An episode from our swapcast, where I spoke to Dave over at the Freaking Hambone Show (@hb_show) earlier this week.



    We talk about Neville Chamberlain, the road to WW2, the lesser talked about side of Winston Churchill and the upcoming UK general election.



    As I mentioned in the episode, there are a few sound issues in the episode- nothing massively offensive, but definitely noticeable. I usually record my side as well, but forgot this time. It was such a good chat, I couldn’t bring myself to not share it!

    Who had the worst start as Prime Minister?

    Who had the worst start as Prime Minister?

    Today we looked back across history to pick out the Prime Ministers who had the worst start to their careers in Number 10. This is about what they did, what they didn’t do and also what they inherited limited to the first few months of their premiership.



    Sit back and relax as we talk about such PM’s as Viscount Goderich, Churchill, Thatcher, Heath and many more. We’ll even talk about Boris Johnson’s statistically terrible start to the current premiership.

    The end of WW1 in London & Berlin (with Podcast on Germany)

    The end of WW1 in London & Berlin (with Podcast on Germany)

    In today’s episode, we discuss the events of Armistice Day, that happened 101 years ago today (11/11/1918). To really make it interesting, I teamed up with Jacob from Podcast On Germany, to give an interesting new angle to it- looking at the end of World War One from both the British and German side of the trenches.



    We discuss the Armistice signing, how the soldiers were told, the last deaths of the war and beyond that to look at how the war ended- and how that potentially laid the path for WW2. We finish by looking at how the end of WW1 is remembered today in both London and Berlin.
