    302 England's Garland

    There are many myths about the Elizabethan Navy, the idea of a world-beating tool that created an international Empire. It wasn't quite, and it didn't, at all. None the less Elizabethan's reign and innovations did change England from naval also-ran to Premier league.

Love this Pod, great history content

Was previously listening to the british history podcast when the hosts personal politics and lengthy person story overtook the content of the podcast. I am up to episode 115 of this pod and it has not made the same mistake so far.

You get the hosts personality without it taking over the content, great content!! Best history pod going for British history!

The thing that pushes it over

Not only is Mr Crowther witty, clear, thorough, and well read, but he also uses the word “moot” correctly, for which alone he gets five stars.

History come alive

I listen to these podcasts in big gulps—while doing DIY projects around the house, 4 or 5 a day. Love them. DC is witty, and brings the people involved into a truly life-like stage—you feel like you get to really know and understand them, their motivations, their times. At a time when being a U.S. citizen means being despindent and fearful about our nation’s direction is going, this gives me some perspective—i.e. things can indeed get bad, but they can also get better. Hope, some knowledge and some humor-what more can you ask of a podcast?
