Historians Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook are interrogating the past, and attempting to de-tangle the present.
They question the nature of Greatness, why the West no longer has civil wars and whether Richard Nixon was more like Caligula or Claudius.  
They're distilling the entirety of human history, or, as much as they can fit into about fifty minutes.

    ARCHIVE: Watergate (Part 2)

    ARCHIVE: Watergate (Part 2)

    Watergate 50th Anniversary re-release (Part 2):
    Last October we recorded a two part special on the remarkable political story which became known as Watergate.
    Today marks 50 years since the break-in at the Democratic headquarters in the Watergate building in Washington, D.C. - which marked the start of a scandal that would ultimately unseat US president Richard Nixon.
    So we thought we’d re-release our two episodes, largely for the benefit of the many new listeners who have been kind enough to subscribe to The Rest is History over the past eight or nine months and may have missed the shows first time round.
    That’s not to say our longer-standing listeners should ignore them, they certainly reward a second hearing.
    Enjoy the show.

    197. Antony & Cleopatra

    197. Antony & Cleopatra

    After centuries of Cleopatra and Mark Antony’s relationship being told and fictionalised by Plutarch and Shakespeare alike, Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook uncover what history tells us about this power couple. They reveal how the rise of Octavian as a threat caused Mark Antony to turn to Cleopatra for support. It was a relationship that had less to do with romance and love, and more to do with monetary and territory gains.
    The release date of the final episode in this series (Cleopatra's Downfall) is Monday 20th June. However, members of The Rest Is History Club get all episodes RIGHT NOW, so head to restishistorypod.com to sign up.
