Customer Reviews

I hated doing history at school...

Ok, it was a long time ago but I remember it being a dull, boring subject - not to mention the dry, sleep-inducing way it was presented. This podcast is the complete opposite - I downloaded the General Patton one first of all, which I've listened to a few times now. I learned loads whilst being entertained by the obvious enthusiasm and wit of the narrator. He's clearly enjoying himself, and why not? Plus, he sounds a bit like Peter Cook and that's just fine with me. Don't let that other reviewer put you off - the dodgy voices probably will make you chuckle but what's so bad about that?

Great podcast and informative.

Need too swat up on your history listen to this great cast. Well written and very informative. Not too sure about zee dodgy accents though. Look forward to more of the same.

This is a great podcast

This is a great podcast. Whether or not you liked historical minutae or not, whether you started off by knowing anything about the Crusades - these guys made it all interesting - and you begin to get an inkling why we are a little offset with those in the middle east and if you wondered why we bombed bits of Europe during the Serbian conflict for the first time, well, it was only becuase we only invented bombs quite recently; but we were over that way doing some similar things a while ago.. I don't stop listening to it on the train, on the tube, in the car, or just drifting off to sleep at night. The narrative is read with intelligence and interest and an underlying humour. I have been driven to delve into some of these stories behind the podcasts, and have gradually increased my knowledge and more importantly my enthusiasm to find out more about who we are, why we are, and where we are likely to be going.
