A history podcast from: Jamie Lawson
Add hosts, guests and other creators at Podchaser

A look at the events and culture of the (relatively) recent past -- twenty, or sometimes thirty, years ago from the day of posting. The 1980s. The 1990s. People. Society. Books, movies, television and video games. Crime and justice. War and disasters. It’s all here, seen through the lens of my own memory. Learn or remember about days not so long gone, and see how what happened then affects us today -- all in less than ten minutes per episode.
