Condensed History Gems
About This Show
History is all around us, and there are so many topics to be discussed! So once a week history writer Jem Duducu (@historygems) and juggler and history performer Greg Chapman (@condensedhist) sit down to talk about and swap information on a range of historical subjects - from the Vikings to the World Wars and everything in between. Often funny, always fun, each of the main episodes covers a different topic, plus there are occasional special guests and Greg plays a game of historical 'what if' at the end of most episodes.
Also, every Friday either Jem or Greg release a 'Fast 5 Minute' episode, giving themselves five minutes to muse on history related ponderings they have had in the week.

This week Greg and Jem discuss the Tudors, and whether or not they deserve to be as well known, in their public appeal, as they are - or whether they should perhaps make way for lesser known royals.
The Condensed History Gems podcast is a bi-weekly podcast hosted by Greg Chapman, juggler and comedy entertainer from Condensed Histories (@condensedhist) and Jem Duducu, history writer of HistoryGems (@historygems). Each week we have a half hour discussion episode, as well as a shorter ‘Fast 5’ episode featuring one of the two. Subjects range through history, from pirates to Saxons, Vikings to Victorians, and Romans to the Cold War! Find out more about the podcast at www.condensedhistories.com/gems
