A Talented Storyteller Takes on English History

This podcast has helped me make it through the pandemic, proving that a man in a shed CAN make a difference. Thanks DC!

Now that I’m caught up, I save new podcasts like treats.

They are that good. David Crowther relates his subject in a compelling but humorous manner that makes me want to read more on my own, as evidenced by the growing stack of books on my shelf. The episodes are concisely written but long enough to get into the meat of the topic. Did I mention his voice? It’s like butter. If you’re not an English history buff when you start, don’t worry, you will be.
