ABOUT WE ARE HISTORY
Written and presented by comedian Angela Barnes (Live at the Apollo, The News Quiz) and author and comedy writer John O’Farrell (Spitting Image, Things Can Only Get Better), We Are History tells scarcely-believable-but-true tales from the past with wit, pace and an eye for weird detail. The podcast has already won a formidable following and over a million downloads.
We Are History is already six series strong. In each episode Angela and John unravel and laugh at fascinating and downright bizarre moments in history, from Victorian anti-vaxxers to why Mussolini was a rubbish war leader. The entire back catalogue will be available from Podmasters and include topics as broad as Spy Pigeons, the Bristol Bus Boycott of 1968 and 17th Century Scottish witches.
