The less-than-serious history podcast We Are History is teaming up with Podmasters.
Written and presented by comedian Angela Barnes and author and comedy writer John O’Farrell, We Are History already has a formidable following and over a million downloads.
Podmasters Lead Producer Anne-Marie Luff said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Angela and John into the Podmasters family. We Are History has all the intelligence, wit and warmth we revel in and the podcast is a natural fit for us. We can’t wait to bring it to an even wider audience.”
Anne-Marie recently joined Podmasters after producing new content for over ten years at BBC Radio 4 and 4 Extra.
We Are History has six series under its belt where Angela and John unravel and laugh at fascinating and bizarre incidents from periods of history. The entire back catalogue will be available from Podmasters and include topics such as Spy Pigeons, the Bristol Bus Boycott of 1968 and 17th Century Scottish witches.
John O’Farrell says: “We are really excited about teaming up with Podmasters to take We Are History to the next level. They bring everything to this production that Angela and I do not have; namely competence, professionalism and a decent Wi-Fi connection. I feel like our funny look at the past now has a great future.”
Angela Barnes adds: “We are beyond chuffed, it’s frankly a relief to be in the hands of people who know what they are doing. It should smarten us up a bit and bring this pair of history nerds right into the 21st century.”
We Are History will relaunch with ten new episodes in May on all podcast platforms.
