298 episodes

A regular podcast telling the story of England with warmth and wit and enthusiasm. The story of the great names and the events that made England the mosaic it is today; the daily lives of the people who made it so. We take a chronological approach, from the cataclysmic end of Roman Britain, all the way through to the present day – when we get there! Along the way we follow the major highways of history, and some of the side roads too – what it was like to live in the Middle Ages, why the difference between Ale and Beer affected people’s lives, how the English language developed and loads more! Plus there’s a handy website – with biographies, maps (must have maps), articles and, well, just bags of stuff.

Hooked Already!

Finally I took the plunge into podcasts and found this one right away. I’m hooked after hearing the first two episodes from the beginning of the series, way back in 2010. This is the history class that didn’t put me to sleep. Don’t change a thing! You’ve got at least one fan in Southern California, USA. 👏🎉

Just a smidge

Of cinnamon, and this podcast is delicious!
While enjoying your podcast,
I thumb my nose at your bland Apple pie Sir, and fart thusly in its general direction.
