Nadine here, all th way from Ballarat Australia. My town is famous for the 1850’s gold rush. Thank you for your podcast. Absolutely loving learning about Victorian history through the lives of everyday people and those history making people.
Hi. I’m thrilled you’ve found the show and are enjoying it. I’ll definitely look Ballarat up and see if I can find some interesting related Victorian history to include in the show.
