I enjoyed this piece. There was an aside that lots of Irish people had emigrated to USA, and this hardened the anti English opinion. Could you possibly outline why this might be true. Why Irish people might be anti English. it is never covered by english sources

Only someone who has never had to labour for their entire life doing backbreaking work in fields in all weathers for a pittance, with an intermittent food supply, has the luxury of being ambivalent about the effects of the industrial revolution.

what a wonderful episode. the interaction between the three of you was excellent. complementary and not competing! I'm a guide at Worcester Cathedral where King John still lies! your podcasts have added to my knowledge but helped my "guiding" . keep going! PS met a man from Australia last week at the cathedral and we discovered we both listened to the podcast from the opp parts of the world and....we had read Tom's Dominion!

Great tour of Roman London. I went to the city of London museum in 2018 and it was fabulous and had quite a bit of Roman artifacts. I spent 6 hours there and then walked large parts of the wall and made my way over to the hippodrome ruins in an art museum basement. Thanks for sharing.

Had to abandon listening to this. If you're doing a podcast on the Loch Ness Monster, it's pretty jarring when neither presenter is saying "loch."

Why is the city of Stalingrad only laid out in one side of the river, as opposed to other major cities which make the river the center of their blueprint ?

To state that the French were not interested in the colonisation of Australia is only half the story. Capt. Baudin's letter to Gidney King directly appealed to the English to abandon their settlement due to the French understanding of Australia being *already* occupied by indigenous Australians.
