This is my retelling of the story of England, in a regular, chronological podcast, from the cataclysmic end of Roman Britain, all the way through to the present day. I’m a bloke in a shed, so this is not a dry retelling of events; I make sure this is good, properly prepared history, but I fill it with my love and enthusiasm, and some of the things that make me laugh. You’ll find the great events and people for sure – but also some of the byways, of how people lived, their language, and the forces that shaped their lives and destinies.

Great Humour, Great History

I’m learning and laughing rather loudly on my car rides. As an American, I am not super knowledgeable of the history of our colonial oppressors. This podcast tells you the story of the great personalities that come down through the ages. Possibly the best part of listening is how much you can tell our host loves learning and retelling these stories.

Special Bonus:
There are regular Douglas Adams references.

So nice I’m listening twice

This is the history prof you always wanted. There’s so much good stuff I’m replaying the entire series again. And still learning.

Very enjoyable.

I really love listening to this podcast; full of wit and humor. Makes sometimes complicated or dry history easier to follow, or at least entertaining!
