Jem wondered how some famous historical figures would feel about the way that their names live on through the ages. Would Henry VIII be happy with the image his name conjures up in popular culture? How many other figures might be less than happy with the way they are seen within history?

From Benedict Arnold to Judas, and from Ancient Rome to Nazi Germany, Greg and Jem debate whether a traitor can ever be considered 'good'.

Greg is off to the circus, and so decides to look a little into their history!

Of all the wars you may have heard of, it seems that the Seven Year War is one of the most famous wars that most people seem to know very little about.

In fact, so forgotten is this war, that Greg entirely forgot to edit and release this episode, and you may already have heard references to it in other episodes. After being duly reprimanded by Jem, however, Greg has got that sorted and the episode is now ready for your listening pleasure!

Jem decides that a full episode wasn't enough to say everything that he wanted to about the film Dunkirk, and talks a little bit more about the film, and a little bit about how it has been received, including by some Dunkirk Veterans.

With a new historical summer blockbuster out, Greg and Jem try their hand out at being film reviewers as they look at the new film about Dunkirk - how historically accurate it is, and why Greg is disappointed that it wasn't a Braveheart Sequel!

Knowing Greg is on a diet, Jem decides that it is an appropriate time to discuss some of the history of food. From the Siege of Vienna to Napoleon's trousers, this podcast goes in directions that neither of the hosts predicted!

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
