A regular podcast telling the story of England with warmth and enthusiasm. The story of the great names and the events that made England the mosaic it is today; the daily lives of the people who made it so. We take a chronological approach, from the end of Roman Britain, all the way through to the present day – when we get there! Along the way we follow the major highways of history, and some of the side roads too – what it was like to live in the Middle Ages, why the difference between Ale and Beer affected people’s lives, how the English language developed and loads more! Plus there’s a handy website – with biographies, maps (must have maps), articles and, well, just bags of stuff.

Amusing and very thorough

David Crowther has created a fantastic postcast series. Bringing a very thorough and interesting history of England with a nice doses of (British) humour which is also great to listen to for foreigners such as myself. From time to time he does get bogged down in old-fashioned chronological military political history with streams of names, places and dates, but he makes up with general overviews and social history episodes. He also pays attention to source criticism and historiography, which makes this series way better than just some amateur telling of England’s past.

Great podcast if you like History

More details than I expected, broader views than I hoped for (yeah for attention to women and peasants!) and funny to boot. A joy to listen to.

Great fun and in depth topic discussion

I'm a big fan of history podcasts, and I really like this one. I'm only on the back catalogue and only listened to 90 episodes so far. The story is told in a very enjoyable way with loads of humor and this is offset to a very thorough treatment of the periods. We get an apology now and again for digressions, but these add to the story tremendously. I'm just really thankful I've got over a 100 episodes lined up, since having to wait for them to appear would test my patience...
