Fascinating!

I am so happy to have found this podcast. It actually covers several years before and after Victoria’s reign, providing background and aftermath of this pivotal time in history. Mr Fernandez-Packham, the author, can dive into wonderful rabbit holes like gin in the Victorian era, or an examination of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol — all as sidebars to historical events. In addition, his voice is by far the best of all the podcasts I listen to.

A favorite

Excellent podcast, fascinating new information and insights on a topic I thought I knew well. The politics, culture and context given on all parts of society also enrich reading the great novels of the 19th century. Great research and empathy for each subject.
