The Rest Is History

Goalhanger Podcasts

Historians Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook are interrogating the past, and attempting to de-tangle the present. They question the nature of Greatness, why the West no longer has civil wars and whether Richard Nixon was more like Caligula or Claudius. They're distilling the entirety of human history, or, as much as they can fit into about fifty minutes. Join The Rest Is History Club ( for ad-free listening to the full archive, weekly bonus episodes, live streamed shows and access to an exclusive chatroom community. Here are some of our favourite episodes to get you started: WATERGATE/NIXON ALEXANDER THE GREAT HARDCORE HISTORY'S DAN CARLIN PUTIN & RUSSIA

    I literally became a yearly subscriber today just so I could get earlier access to part 2 of the 60s Fashion episode and get a resolution on the cliffhanger. They did not disappoint. Money we’ll spent. more

    This episode even out-stripped all the other outstanding episodes. Now I can understand why I dressed the way I did why I loved my Vespa scooter and my behaviour. So sorry my parents are not around to hear you and understand. New Zealand may only have a 180 year history but we still are fascinated by the wider history of the world. Laurie Bond

    From a 50 something woman who gained her first degree at 45, second at 47 and has been a staunch STEM orientated thinker, I have never been exposed to history. I stumbled onto this podcast and a whole new world has opened up. From a tight budget, my monthly subscription to RIHC is as important as my ongoing professional development. How has it taken me so long to know this?
