Podcasting History: event recording now available

6 May 2024

The Royal Historical Society’s recent online introduction to history podcasts (held on 25 April) is now available to watch or listen to as an audio recording. Presented by the experienced podcasters, Bob Nicholson and Dave Musgrove, this presentation and Q&A session explored creating and developing a podcast on a historical topic. Bob and Dave share their considerable experience and emphasize the importance of engaging content and story-telling over hi-tech production values.

Dr Bob Nicholson is a historian based at Edge Hill University who has written and presented items for BBC Radio 4, Radio 3, ‘History Today’, and ‘BBC History Magazine’. Most recently, he wrote and presented the podcast documentary series ‘Killing Victoria’ for BBC Sounds (2023), which explored the lives of seven men who attacked Queen Victoria and reached the top 5 in the UK History charts. Dr Dave Musgrove is content director of ‘BBC History Magazine’ and the HistoryExtra podcast and website.
