History podcasts

Well, we have a bonus post today. I usually post every 10 days, but I thought I’d squeeze a last one in before the end of the summer holidays.

I’m not a GCSE teacher so I can’t vouch for the quality of these podcasts, but you may find them useful.

The GCSE History Revision Podcast

The British History Podcast – this one isn’t a GCSE revision one, but it’s informative and entertaining for anyone with an interest in history. Warning: it contains explicit language, not all of which is bleeped out.

15 Minute History – this one isn’t GCSE specific either, but I enjoy listening to it. It sometimes has more of an American slant but they cover some interesting topics.

English podcasts

As I said in my last post, I’m a recent convert to podcasts. I really like the fact that I can slip my phone in my pocket, plug my headphones in, and learn something new while I’m washing up or cleaning the windows! It makes the munane tasks seem a bit more bearable!

I’m not a GCSE teacher so I can’t vouch for the quality of the podcasts mentioned in this post, but you may find them useful.

GCSE Revisionpod – I really like this one. The banter between the two presenters keeps it light-hearted.

Revise GCSE English Literature

Approaching Shakespeare – this one isn’t GCSE specific, but there are some really interesting insights into Shakespeare’s plays.

Mr Bruff podcast – I know lots of people really like Mr Bruff’s website as I see it recommended quite a lot. I didn’t find this podcast as engaging as GCSE Revisionpod (above) but everyone has different tastes.
