Greg is one of the UK’s most popular public historians, well known for his work in podcasts, radio, TV, and publishing. He is the host and creator of the chart-topping comedy BBC podcast You’re Dead to Me (‘the comedy podcast that takes history seriously’), as well as the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Past Forward: A Century of Sound, the BBC’s award-nominated children’s podcast Homeschool History, and the Audible series A Somewhat Complete History of Sitting Down.
On Tuesday 20 February, Greg is in conversation with the RHS President, Emma Griffin. Greg will discuss his approach to public history; the ways in which broadcasting formats shape how we communicate about the past; the importance of comedy in history education; and the importance of research and experts in creating high-quality public history.
This special RHS event takes place at Mary Ward House, Bloomsbury, WC1H 9SN, and all are very welcome to attend. We hope this event will attract a wide audience, including from schools and colleges, as well as listeners and public historians. The event will include a conversation, followed by questions from our audience at the venue and online. For more about our ‘Evening with Greg Jenner’ and to reserve your seat/s, please click here.
