'Empire'

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

I enjoyed the first episode of the "Empire" podcast from William Dalrymple and Anita Anand. The link is for Spotify, but it's available elsewhere too. This is an underrepresented subject (as discussed in the podcast), so anything that contributes to widening the discourse has to be welcomed. The fact it is done in a lively entertaining ("edu-taining"?) way is a bonus. If history lessons are like this, then more students will engage with the subject(!). It'll also be a useful resource for any lecturers working in the field (alongside the presenters' books). BTW episode two is also available now.

"In the opening episode, William and Anita discuss the rise of The East India Company, exploring how a small corporation founded in Tudor England - with only a handful of employees - came to rule India."
