As a Victorian history buff myself, I love these little 1 hour podcasts. From secrets of the freak shows to murder most foul, this podcast will have something that you didn't know before about your own history. Although after his game show QI, Stephen Fry is not my most trusted of historians. This podcast is mostly snippets from others reading or being interviewed about their specialised subjects. A podcast I thought I would hate I quite enjoyed.
It breaks the very idea that ordinary Victorians that they were all about hard work and 'none to do' with people. Some extracts from the Victorian's are so funny that you'll be on the floor laughing and some will make you red with embarrassment. For example, the fact that two twins got married, or that there is a library of the most significant Victorian porn down the road from you. Want to find out where? Or who? Well, you'll just have to listen for yourself.
If it wasn't for the poverty of the time, it makes you want to go back in time. In a doctor who type of way.
