• Summary

  • The BHP is a chronological retelling of the history of Britain with a particular focus upon the lives of the people. You won’t find a dry recounting of dates and battles here, but instead you’ll learn about who these people were and how their desires, fears, and flaws shaped the histories of England, Scotland, and Wales.

An excellent way to explore the forces of history

Jamie and Zee do an excellent job of bringing history to life, especially from a ground-level perspective of figuring out the social pressures shaping the societies discussed. A lot of time and effort clearly went into parsing sources and reading between the lines.

I also recommend the members feed. It's cheap and the amount of content is enormous at this point.

Irritating narration

I’m not sure why an American is narrating this. It might be ok if he was good, but he’s not. So it’s very incongruous

BHP is the GOAT

The best. Jeffers is a source of fascinating, well-researched, entertaining history content. Get caught up NOW, because 1066 is coming up fast!

BEEN FOLLOWING THIS FOR YEARS

LOVE The Facts and research that have made this into such a useful yet entertaining podcast.
Truly my favourite podcast I've ever heard.
Weather you are a teacher who wants to draw knowledge or storytelling skills, or like me, just a history lover who was always hungry to learn more but struggled to trust 'facts' taught in formal education, but lacked the ability to actually study materials to find out the truth for myself, this podcast will definitely give you the clearest picture of British history through the ages that you will find anywhere.
Jamie, please continue to create these podcasts! Thank you!

Brilliant!

Comedically irreverent but always factual, this podcast is an absolute gem. You’ll never enjoy learning more than with Jamie’s podcast. So much information and presented perfectly 5*
