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.

    216. Pigeons

    216. Pigeons

    ‘If it became necessary immediately to discard every line and method of communications used on the front, except one, and it were left to me to select that one method, I should unhesitatingly choose the pigeons’, wrote Major General Fowler, Chief of Signals and Communications of the British Army, after the First World War.
    On today's podcast Tom and Dominic are joined by Gordon Corera, the BBC's Security Correspondent and author of 'Operation Columba: The Secret Pigeon Service', to discuss the often under-appreciated role of pigeons throughout the course of history.

Don’ t give me discussions

You are historians and I love to hear you tell me about “HISTORY”
So stop making podcasts with experts and discuss with them all the time. Save this for the pub or the study. Just tell us the story
