The BHP is a chronological retelling of the history of Britain with a particular focus upon the lives of the people. You won’t find a dry recounting of dates and battles here, but instead you’ll learn about who these people were and how their desires, fears, and flaws shaped the histories of England, Scotland, and Wales.

Along with the History of England podcast, this is one of my favorite histories of the Isles. I'm only sad that this pod doesn't come out daily because Jaime and Z put together a heck of a show that mixes wonderful sound effects, music, and amazing tales from the old history books. Modern and fun version of dusty old history. Amazing
The History show which decided to take the "exhaustive" route. The subject, Great Britain, is both wide and clearly defined. The host makes a great job dealing with the gap in our actual knowledge of some places and chapter of history while managing to make the whole lot sound friendly and understandable. I love little notes of humour like the sheep in the pasture sound or the "Personal Jesus" goth invasions. Great also if you are a fan of The Last Kingdom. :)
I've been a fan of this podcast from Day One. Jamie is probably one of the most engaging and entertaining posts ever. He's not just passionate and knowledgeable about British history, he's an absolute riot. He's the kind of history teacher many of us wish we had. Somehow he works in Tupac and Athelred and it makes perfect sense.
