MINI013 The One With The Recap

This minisode gives a recap of the key themes in the show since launch as we get ready for a major Victorian event. (and no this isn’t like the Simpsons playing clips of old episodes in a ropey season 18 TV special). This show is a great chance to remind yourself of the real building block events that unleashed the Victorian age.

Also included is a community segment with reviews and listener emails.

Finally we wrap up with the plan for the future structure of the show for the early Victorian era in the year ahead.
