História – Reino Unido – Novos podcasts

  • From outsiders like a Westboro Baptist Church defector and a female Mormon psychopath to such thought leaders as anti-woke scholar James Lindsay and feminist Helen Lewis, BBC journalist Andrew Gold takes us away from our comfort zone and into the worlds of people on the edge. New episodes every Monday - with trailers on his Twitter page: @andrewgold_ok and Instagram page: @andrewgold_ok.

    With an open mind and a wry sense of humour, Andrew alternates the theme of guest. Some weeks it'll be with somebody totally 'on the edge' - whether it be the woman who married a sociopathic bigamist or an ex-Muslim whose family tried to kill her. Other episodes will have interviews with such leading minds as Conservative peer Lord Daniel Finkelstein and feminist Helen Pluckrose.

    It was picked in Apple's prestigious New & Noteworthy category and has been a top Editor Pick for Castbox and Stitcher, who also placed it in their 'What we're listening to'. Get in touch or leave a review - it helps boost it up those charts!

  • Myth Dynamite is a labour of absolute and unequivocal love for ancient mythology. We - Abi and Sarah - met back in 2016 when we both decided to happily sacrifice another year of further study at the altar of the Olympian Gods. We left a year later, with shiny new MA Classics degrees, and a firm friendship.​ Ever since we've had dinner after dinner (billed as catch ups) that would unsurprisingly result in conversations on myth, and how its many, many stories reflect and refract some of today's issues: sexuality, the self, gender, power, family, respect, and humanity's immutable ability to metamorphose (lovely little Ovid reference for those who know, and for those who don't head over to our first full episode 'One Poet to Rule them All' to find out. A shameless plug, we'll admit it.)​ It became very clear to us, that we had a lot to say - and we want to share it with people: other people who love myth; people who have some idea of myth; and people who haven't come across ancient Greek and Roman myths before.​ Hence - after a long time spent developing it (read talking about myth some more) - a shining star, which Myth Dynamite will hopefully be for people, was born (if you haven't, please see Disney's 'Hercules' stat).​N.B. This is ancient myth and we're not censoring it. There will be adult content throughout. We hope you have as much fun listening to us rabbit on about myth as we had making this podcast.

  • Join us as we explore history through the eyes of sisterhood.

    We look into all of the rivalries, collaborations, frenemies and friendships that make up sisterhood. We hope you enjoy.

  • The story of the end of the Civil War you’ve probably been taught is that the slaves were freed by Northern white men (and maybe a handful of famous Underground Railroad conductors). What’s missing? The story of how Black Americans risked their lives to fight for their own visions of what freedom could be—struggling for their dignity in the face of horrific violence. Seizing Freedom tells the stories of these unsung American heroes.
    Black Americans launched themselves into political careers, became newspaper magnates, entrepreneurs, Wall Street traders, and used their newfound mobility to reunite families torn apart by slavery. For twelve brief years of Reconstruction, Black Americans lay powerful claims to citizenship, dignity, and rights—despite brutal suppression.
    Seizing Freedom is the personal history of the struggle to define freedom after 400 years of slavery. Using first-hand accounts from diaries, newspapers, speeches, and letters, this is a narrated docu-drama podcast about the failures and successes of the Reconstruction era, told by those who made it happen. These personal accounts illustrate what was at stake for the nation and reveal unsettling echoes in the fight for political and social justice of today.

  • Join Isadora (a Brit with a degree in History) as she helps to educate two American guys on a little about the history of the house they have all just moved into, and therefor England as a whole.
