    To foster discussion and community, might I suggest that you expand upon the thread you post in the forum when a new episode is released.  In that post you could include various details you may have gathered from your research, such pictures, books, articles, web links etc…  You could also pose questions to the audience that would foster discussion/debate.

    Good suggestion. It is difficult, you may have noticed, to get the community talking about the episodes or anything they feel like discussing, whether related to history or current affairs or anything really. Jamie is constantly busy with the project: has a lot of research, writing, proof reading and recording to get through; updating the members registrations and making the odd post on the forum, replying to tweets and facebook comments, he doesn't have much time for anything else......maybe eating the odd meal here and there and perhaps some sleep if he's lucky  ;)It would be good through to see additional input regarding the materials used in the research such pictures, articles and links etc. This might help to encourage user discussion.

    I love this idea, but Chris actually has a point.  As we go forward the available material is continually compounding.  Which means I'm spending a ton of time reading and cross referencing.  So it doesn't leave much time for additional side projects.  But if things ease up as we move forward, I'll definitely keep it in mind.  :)

    Jamie, I do think that posing questions more often would be useful to garner further discussion. You could give that a try to see if anything comes of it  :)

    I was toying with doing some sort of discussion via skype with listeners to chat about questions, etc.  Roughly like a meetup, except you'll have to pour your own beer. ;)

    finally listened to all the podcasts the first time.  Now need to relisten to see if more will stick.I loved the pub quiz.  Didn't do well but would welcome more of the same.
