Enjoy the best Victorian History Podcast on the net.
ABOUT THE SHOW
We live in a world shaped by the deeds of our ancestors. For good or ill, they made the world of today.
The Age of Victoria Podcast is a monthly podcast that chronologically retells the history of the world in the nineteenth century through the eyes of the Victorians.
It was an age of change, progress, science, art, literature, war, poverty, horror and empire.
The show focuses on the real everyday people behind the great events, the philosophy and the causes, to open a door on a lost past that was very different from common stereotypes. This is not a dry run down of dates and battles; this is the past come to life.
I’m Chris Fernandez-Packham, creator and host of the Age of Victoria Podcast. I’m a big history fan, but not a professional historian. I did my undergraduate degree in Philosophy then went on to study post graduate law (CPE & LPC).
I joined the British Civil Service as a Presenting Officer, then moved to doing project management and IT delivery. Any views expressed on the show are entirely my own.
