Excellent in depth discussion of British History

I have been listening for years and finally caught up to real time so I thought I’d leave a review.

Jamie does an excellent job traversing from the strategic level to the intimate details of life over this time period. This podcast is best consumed in a car while driving long distances, and if possible try to run through 3-4 episodes at a time chunked by topic. It’s a really entertaining way of getting through your trip.

It is obvious that Jamie has a politically left bent, and that does come through not infrequently, but if you’re a mature adult who can handle your perspectives challenged you should make it through okay. It’s a podcast, settle down (n.b. I hold very right of center political views).

Anyways congrats to Jamie and I hope he’s getting enough $ through subscriptions to make it over the next 15 years that this project will require!

It’s history

Ok so I’ve listened on and off for years, I have a masters degree in another field but have always dabbled in history courses. What is wrong with these people angry about BCE and CE? This is not a political slant but what all of academia uses to date history. Also those complaining about a liberal slant due to discussion of global warming.....he says in episode 7 “the climate was warmer than it is now”. If you don’t like history stick your head in the sand and make your own version I guess. Conservative here, don’t see the liberal slant, so stop giving people one star for your own bias.

Anyway, love the podcast, I keep coming back.

Best History Professor I Never Had

If you love history, this is as good a podcast as you are likely to hear. It’s obvious that Jamie spends an incredible amount of time on research and is scrupulous in pointing out when the records are incomplete, flat out missing or contradictory. He is anything but dull and dry. On the other hand, if you think English history shouldn’t take more than 10 episodes, that the Church was only interested in spiritual affairs and that the issues of today are somehow different than those of history, then this podcast is probably not for you. Watch a half hour Fox documentary or something.
