While it’s not quite our normal subject matter, some of you may be interested in American History Too, a new podcast from good friend of the Good Friends, Dr Malcolm Craig (who we interviewed back in episode 30). He and his colleague Mark McLay, both history lecturers at the University of Edinburgh, discuss a different aspect of American history every episode, and it’s really rather good.
Although the podcast is aimed primarily at history students, it’s perfectly accessible to laypeople. Personally I have no academic background in history and still find it fascinating. It’s the next best thing to sitting down with Malcolm and chatting over a pint for half an hour.
