History the way it is meant to be heard

History is human. History is drama. History is our story, and it belongs to all of us.

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 scope of this island at the edge of the world.

This show is intended to be listened to in order, if you start with the most recent episode you will almost certainly become lost. So if you’re new, why don’t you listen to the first episode and find out what the show is all about.

You can find us anywhere you get your Podcasts, including through these providers:

Membership Has Its Privileges

This show is advertiser free.  Seriously.  You can listen to entire episodes without EVER having to hear me awkwardly pretend that I use Blue Apron.

How cool is that?

And the way we’re able to provide that service, and stay one of the only truly independent history podcasts out there, is through Membership. 

Membership is voluntary.  The vast bulk of episodes are free and will remain so.  In fact, the whole main show is free so you don’t have to sign up to listen to the BHP.

However, to thank people for supporting the podcast we do offer a few exclusive extras for Members.

  • Access To Exclusive Members Only Podcasts
  • That’s a big deal.  There’s nearly 100 of them at this point.
  • Rough Transcripts so you can learn how to spell Waelsteng.
  • Member’s only boards so you can use your new vocabulary online.

And all of that costs about the same as a latte per month (unless you’re getting some sort of gold plated fancy latte, in which case “Thanks for listening, Your Highness.”)

If you would like to become a hero of the Werod, you can sign up for Membership by clicking this little button.

And if you’re already a member, make sure to login so you can get access to your extras.

    The presenter is witty and well-spoken, and makes the material very accessible. It’s like listening to your favourite prof over a few pints in the grad students’ pub.

    I've listened to the entire show twice now and I'm working on my third listen. Awesome podcast. It's only one of two that I actually support financially. It's well worth it to keep Jamie in business.

    Perfect blend of grad school-level analysis, narrative and humor. The only other podcast that comes close is Revolutions by Mike Duncan. The only bad thing about this podcast is it'll make others seem like poor cousins.

    Jaime takes history that could be considered boring or dry and turns it into an adventure. I have learned more and retained more interesting facts and information from listening to this podcast than I have in my university lectures. This is my favourite podcast and I cannot wait till the next episode comes out.

    Jamie consistently provides well researched content with context and whatnot from different perspectives surrounding British History.
