History Extra could help you get to Droughtlander this time

This Droughtlander is proving to be the hardest yet. We have no idea when it will be over, so you’ll want to find ways to get through it. Our podcast suggestion for the week is History Extra.

The History Extra podcast has new episodes regularly. It’s run by the same people who bring the History Extra magazine, touching on all things of the past.

It’s been one of our podcast suggestions for a long time, especially for those who love to learn more about history. Let’s take a deeper look at the podcast.

What is History Extra about?

The podcast focuses on different events throughout history. There is something for everyone, whether you want to learn more about the Vikings or you prefer to learn about more recent history like the suffragette movement or the World Wars.

Each episode, there are guests well-versed in their subjects, separating the facts from the fiction. There are also guests connected to TV shows that touch on historical topics, like Michael Hirst to talk about Vikings.

History is one of the reasons many readers got into Outlander. After all, the books are filled with details, and this podcast can help to delve deeper into some of the topics.

Why Outlander fans need to listen to History Extra

As mentioned, there’s certainly the connection to history. A friend suggestions the books and show to me because the first two books/seasons touched on the Jacobite rebellion. She knew that part of history was something that interested me deeply so thought the books would be of interest. I really did get into the books and show because of the historical setting rather than the love story.

However, History Extra doesn’t just touch on the Jacobite rebellion. It doesn’t just offer details about the Revolutionary War in the Colonies. It’s a chance to look at other moments of history.

There is a touch on other Medieval rebellions. You can learn about powerful and strong-willed women of the past, and you can even learn more about the legends of King Arthur. The topics cover the entire world. There’s something for all.

This isn’t just one person sharing their knowledge. Most of the podcast episodes are a discussion. They help to understand more about the time, the events, and opinions on the matter. After all, not all of history has been recorded.
