Blast From My Past

A history, culture, society podcast from MyHeritage & Listen

What if you uncovered something from your family’s past that could alter the course of your entire life? These are the stories of people from all over the world whose lives were changed forever by what they found in their family history. Follow along as they are transported to far-flung corners of the globe and beyond the recesses of living memory to explore the truth about who they are — whether it’s solving an old family mystery, reuniting with relatives they never knew existed, or forging a healing connection to a long-forgotten legacy. Presented by MyHeritage, the Blast From My Past podcast reveals the powerful ways our roots call across space and time to summon us home. Hosted on Acast. See for more information.

Information for podcasters

Get a universal link is a so-called universal link: it will automatically open Google Podcasts on Android phones, Apple Podcasts on iOS devices, or this page. Both Apple Podcasts and the Google Podcasts player are pre-installed on every phone.

A QR code to this URL is a great way to share your podcast. You’ll find a QR code at the top of this page on desktop. It’s particularly ideal for business cards, posters or conventions.

But - you are always better to fully control your own podcast and not rely on any third-party - even us. So, here’s the code to add a universal link to your own website. Copy/paste this HTML into a new file on your website, and link to that instead.

Don’t code? Here are more universal link providers you can use.

Privacy: The player will download audio directly from Acast if you listen. That shares data (like your IP address or details of your device) with them.
Affiliate links: This page links to Apple Podcasts. We may receive a commission for purchases made via those links.
