Another of the excellent History Extra Podcasts. ‘ The End of the First World War’ Professor Gary Sheffield

 

45 minutes but well worth a listen

https://www.acast.com/historyextra/theendofthefirstworldwar

 

TGM did you miss this one!

 

I see you've been putting them in the Virtual Library I wonder if we should have a separate thread folk can add to similar to the 'What Books are you reading'.

Books are so 20th century :hypocrite:

I've just stumbled across your post, Kenf48 - sorry been busy visiting various Centenary Project events this week and last too.

Yes,I think I did, but thank you for posting.

I agree - What are you Listening to (Radio and Podcasts etc), though there is a Video Links thread too and I wonder whether there is a need to be rethink and rename Video Links to perhaps Multimedia Library?

PS I think I visit the History Extra Podcasts less often as they changed the platform which means I can't download and listen to it offline on my mobi :(

Yes I agree with your comments regarding History Extra, bit annoyed I had to listen on my iMac.

 

Multimedia library sounds good. I like dipping into the pResentations forum too.

Kenf48 - Do you want to start it off by Editing your #1 post and renaming it? What podcast are listening to? Adding tags: podcasts, radio, audio

Though worth remembering some are not podcasts per se...

Hi TGM

 

As ken suggested, start a "What podcast are you listening to" thread and put that in Virtual Library.

Spof,

Please can you move this thread?

I’ll assist in getting this thread going. I was listening to the Digger History podcast and the presenter mentioned some sort of NSW podcast. I tracked down the Australian Naval History Podcast and listened to their episodes on the Rabaul Campaign of 1914, which were fantastic. I definitely recommend giving it a listen.

If you have an android smart phone have a look for the Castbox app on Google Play. I use it to listen to various podcasts and I have just checked that the History Extra podcast can be downloaded and listened to offline from this app. 

Hope this helps

Stumbled across a review in todays Observer of Owen Matthews' book on Richard Sorge  - An impeccable spy: Richard Sorge, Stalin's master agent. This led me to a Spectator podcast with the author - it's interesting and covers some of Sorge's GW service.

Amritsar 1919: Remembering a British Massacre (BBC Radio 4, 09.04.2019)

Thoroughly interesting commemorative programme on the Amritsar massacre and the actions of Brigadier Reginald Dyer.

Some GW connections.

A site well worth exploring for podcasts on many interesting topics.  The above is from the WFA Antrim conference on 'Consequences of War'

Bit of a fraud here

was listening to Gregg Jones and the USMC at Khe Sanh

but the site

History Hacks promoted and broadcast by Alexandra Churchill has a number of WW1 Podcasts, most by weel known WW1 historians, for example

The Somme - tragic neccesity

https://historyhack.podbean.com/e/108-history-hack-the-somme-a-tragic-necessity/?fbclid=IwAR3m0hPIa8ag5L87a9f8_Zxm-8KZOrtE_swfO9CywhBf_S2YuPBm16ZVA3o

 

Alex will be familiar to members through her Great War research and books and her project deserves support especially at this time.

I came across a recommendation for this, covering the Second Battle of the Marne. I didn't realise there were British and Italian troops present, in addition to the French and the AEF.

 

There is a dedicated thread for video presentations

have moved your post
