I have loved and lived with the story of the history of the English for as long as I can remember. This is my retelling of that story, in a regular, chronological podcast, from the cataclysmic end of Roman Britain, all the way through to the present day. I’m a bloke in a shed, this is not a dry retelling of events; I make sure this is good, properly prepared history, but I fill it with my love and enthusiasm for history, and some of the things that make me laugh. You’ll find the great events and people for sure – but also some of the byways, of how people lived, their language, and the forces that shaped their lives and destinies.

Customer Reviews

Winner: Best Shed-based podcast

I've just finished all 202 current episodes, and I find myself very tempted to start all over again. The history is well-written -- clear and accessible, with well-argued interpretations of the debatable points.

It's also enormously entertaining. David Crowther sounds like someone you'd enjoy having a discussion with on the reasons Richard the Third *had* to take the throne, while you sit in a pub on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Perhaps someday ...

Mike Duncan with a British accent

David's tour of English history is both engaging and educational, he has a conversational tone while walking through the nitty-gritty details of England's past from the departure of the Romans and finds all sorts of interesting and/or entertaining stops along the way. I cannot recommend this podcast enough, Mike Duncan has found a peer in both ambition and execution in David Crowther.

Highly informative

I have listened to the first twelve episodes and I am hooked.
