The Romans - featuring 1990s nostalgia.

This is my first time co-hosting. This podcast is available on 2 platforms. Mine and Elliots. 

It started so well: We spoke all things Roman, The conversation naturally progressed to many other topics! It was great recording this so I kept a lot of it it in. A great accent contrast here. 

Go check out Elliots work at “Anthology of Heroes” and follow him on social media.

Here at the History Emporium & Pals we believe in equality. 

It is against the law to discriminate against someone because of: 

  • age
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

The shocking murder of Sarah Everard has highlighted an injustice that we know is faced by many women across the world: 

 

Still paid less and often not valued in our society or dismissed by the out of touch government and systems we have in place in Britain. 

You can get longer in prison for defacing a statue than if you assault a woman. 

At the history emporium we stand in solidarity of those who gathered at the vigil in south London in memory of Sarah. We also support the right to protest. 

Most of all we send our love to the family and friends of Sarah. She was just walking home.

 

We also continue to stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter campaign.

The Essex whaling disaster. The real life Moby Dick tale.

The Essex whaling disaster. The real life Moby Dick tale. 

Today’s lesson from our history teacher Patrick.

The inspiration for Moby Dick:

Essex was an American whaler from Nantucket, Massachusetts, which was launched in 1799. In 1820, while at sea in the southern Pacific Ocean under the command of Captain George Pollard Jr., she was attacked and sunk by a sperm whale.

The Death of Stalin (Movie Review)

The Death Of Stalin.

Join Chris, Jackson and I for this 3-way film review. 

“When tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin dies in 1953, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to become the next Soviet leader, As they bumble, brawl and back-stab their way to the top, the question remains -just who is running the government?”

NOTE: I say Director instead Dictator. = Error.

The Troubles: Ireland and the UK (Part One)

The Troubles, Ireland and the UK (Part One)

Henry VIII - 1963

Today’s guest is Paddy. We discuss his native land in this fascinating topic.

I have been to Belfast in recent years: I also grew up watching from England the extraordinary news coverage in the 80s & 90s of the troubles in Northern Ireland. It was also portrayed via the British / English media as very one dimensional. This is the first time ever I get to talk to someone who was there and the history behind it.

Belfast that I saw on TV back then is very different to the Belfast that I went to on a city break in the last few years.

Or maybe it’s not and the British media got it wrong?

Catholics and Protestant, unionists and republicans blend into a merge of really unsettled times that are now dubbed “the troubles”

Still to this day the peace wall remains: currently it’s gates are open for people to freely pass through, however they have not been removed entirely just in case the peace treaty breaks down and they need to be closed once more for the safety of the Belfast citizens.

I absolutely loved Belfast and I hope you all enjoy this episode.
