Podcast (of podcasts) launched!

You can now listen to the Popular History Book Reviews’ podcast! (of podcasts) here.

When reading a book I will often search for the author on a podcast episode to hear them discuss their work. It is an amazing way to hear first-hand what the author is thinking and catch some of their enthusiasm for their subject.

You might have seen that we have put links to podcast episodes that we have found relevant and interesting directly in our reviews.

We have collected these episodes into a single podcast of podcasts which you can find here on Listen Notes ( This means that you can copy this podcast link ( into your favourite podcasting program and follow along in the same way as you would any other show. When we add a review, and if the author has appeared on a podcast episode, we will add this episode.

I should stress that we are not affiliated to any of these podcast shows that we are linking to, and we are not producing any podcasts episodes directly.

You can think of it as a “listening list” as much as a podcast. And while we link to a wide variety of different shows there are a few perennial favourites so I will take this opportunity to recommend the excellent History Extra podcast from the BBC ( and Dan Snow’s History Hit (

All of these external podcasts remain fully credited and linked in the podcast notes, and all of the hosting remains with them. And of course they retain the benefit if you buy any of the products they happen to be plugging 🙂
