The Lost Tapes of History podcast is for those who like their history lessons with a side order of humour. Released by Since 79 Productions, the weekly podcast covers a whopping 37 monarchs from William I to Edward VIII, each lasting less than 20 minutes.
Imagine finding a stack of audio tapes containing the first few minutes of interviews and private conversations between England’s monarchs and some therapists, counsellors, officials and professionals just trying to do their job. Imagine eavesdropping and getting a glimpse of who they really were as human beings.
What would have happened if Richard III had been dragged into a police station to be questioned about his nephews? What would you have heard if Henry VIII had gone to see a therapist about his trust issues? Or if George IV had seen a marriage guidance counsellor? If you crossed Horrible Histories with Psychobitches, what would you get?
Based on real facts at a specific year in each Monarch’s life, listeners will learn about their true personalities and leave them with a thirst for more. A website page for each monarch explains the facts and where to continue the search for more knowledge.
