Most will know Dan Snow, one of the UK’s most popular broadcasters when it comes to history. Some of you will be aware of the highly successful website History Hit website and, if so, you will also be aware of the huge number of podcasts now available to download or listen to online.
The History Hit network continues to expand and, alongside Dan Snow, find Dr Janina Ramirez and her Art Detective podcast, also a selection of excellent lectures at the Chalke Valley History Festival, and Dr Sam Willis and Professor James Daybell bring a fascinating new look at history with their Histories of the Unexpected.
When it comes to the last series of podcasts, ‘Unexpected’ is exactly the way to describe the latest episode entitled Blood for these eminent historians refer to a book written by none other than Dr Sara Read who will be appearing at the Book Blasts in March. Listen to the podcast then come along and meet the author (and many others) and even get your copy of the book signed by the lady herself.
