Interesting historical shorts

I like interesting, true accounts of history and science. These are great to listen to when you’re busy doing physical chores and want something to occupy your mind. They’re not so long that you get disinterested. Just enough info that you get the gist of what happened…your not going to remember all the details anyway. These are just enough.

Great approach to history

This is an outstanding series, using eyewitnesses to historical events to tell the story. This gives an immediacy to the stories and makes for compelling history. Sometimes the eyewitnesses are famous figures, but as often as not they are simply ordinary folk swept up in the history that is part of all of us. Kudos to the BBC for yet another original contribution.

Great Podcast

It is always fun to hear about history from those whom have experienced the event. Very professional and organized podcast.
