Here’s this week’s Lost Tapes of History Podcast – Episode 29 – George I and the Hostage Negotiator

Thanks to Kerrie Fuller for sending us the information and allowing Arch MD Mag to host the show and promote the fantastic 15 minute listen.

Imagine finding a stack of audiotapes 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.

This week sees the release of the fourteenth episode of a new weekly podcast: The Lost Tapes of History; for those who like their history lessons with a side order of humour. Released by Since 79 Productions, Season One of the podcast covers a whopping 37 monarchs from William I to Edward VIII, each lasting less than 20 minutes.

Episode 29 – George I and the Hostage Negotiator

The date is November 1717. George has quarrelled with his son and banished him and his wife from his residence but has kept their three daughters and won’t release them. A hostage negotiator has been called.

Very enjoyable – Looking forward to more episodes. I’m learning about history (never paid enough attention at school) whilst laughing along with the satire.

History made fun – I’m 3 episodes in and enjoying this podcast very much. A really fun way to learn about historical figures. Each ep is short and snappy and has some lovely voice acting. Give it a go.

 Fun, funny and historically accurate – I’ve listened to the first two episodes so far and I love the concept. Basically, it’s an English monarch talking to a modern-day worker, starting from William I learning English. I laughed out loud and I learnt some history too!
