Hi Everyone,My name is Peter and I have just joined having been listening to Jamie's podcasts for a few months. I really like his way of looking at history - not just kings and battles but how ordinary people lived and what their lives were like. This is proper history to me!I have now retired from working in the scientific/medical world and history is an immensely enjoyable contrast to what I was previously doing. Also, I have an interest in politics and current affairs, and history provides very useful insights into how we manage (or mismanage) our affairs today.Finally, living in the middle of England, I really appreciate this way of finding out much more about my own history.
Hi Peter, welcome to the forums!I'm so pleased that you're enjoying the deviation from the Great Man approach. It's been fun, but a little bit risky. So it's always nice to hear from happy listeners who enjoy the change of pace. :) Thanks!
