Great BIG History Podcast will take us on the journey from 10,000 BCE to last week. We will start with the basic HIS 101, HIS 102 type intro college course. laying out big events, important characters, interesting trends.
After that, we will start our deep dive series. "8 Kings and a Queen" - a history of Sweden and Scandinavia from 1520-1721.
and "History behind the News" - where we take big news events such as the rise of ISIS and discuss it in a historical context.
and finally, out military history section will talk about the battles, wars, weapons, treaties and philosophies which have defined fighting in the world (and in historical fiction as well - look out Game of Thrones we're looking at how you use dragon airpower and how the Starks use Soft Power keep hold of the North and our hearts).
