Excellent History Podcast

Well researched and warmly narrated podcast that does a fascinating, deep dive into Victoria and her age. I especially appreciate how Chris takes a fair look at both sides of the issue and the people. Looking forward to the future of this podcast, very professionally done.

It’s not just Victoria

War! Volcanos! Booze! Ghosts! Who knew that so much excitement could be packed into a podcast’s first two years? Chris does a fantastic job covering all aspects of the age of Victoria. You’ll also appreciate his personal thoughtful insights on the culture and values of the era.

Amazing

Stumbled across this Podcast the other day and I think it is incredible. He says he’s approaching this era not as a scholar, etc, but as an enthusiast, but it is better presented than many scholarly
papers I’ve read. There is a depth and thoroughness to the research and presentation that you don’t often see, and although spaced out, the narrative flows seamlessly from one episode into another. I would strongly recommend this podcast to any fan of history out there.
