We’ve been recording a podcast

A little update on why History Repeating has been quiet.


This blog has been quiet for a while. Sorry about that.

Aside from simply just spending ‘a few minutes’ (read: hours a day) working on my family tree, I’ve also been busy working on cataloguing The Littleport Society’s archive, and recording a podcast series called The Family Histories Podcast.

If you’re not a podcast listener – a podcast is an episodic radio-type programme that you subscribe to (for free), and then whenever a new episode is released, it appears on your computer, tablet, or phone queue waiting for you to play.

In fact, here is the trailer….

The first series of The Family Histories Podcast began in June 2021, and releases an approximately 40 minute episode each week. As I type this, we’re already 5 episodes in, and there’s two left of this series. We’re already planning series 2.

Each episode sees a guest join me (Andrew) to talk about their family history research, they then tell the life story of one of their most fascinatingly good, bad, or just plain ugly relatives, before ending the show with their current brick wall – where it’s over to the listener to see if they can help with a breakthrough.

Each episode also includes a special ‘goodbye’ for each guest… how could they refuse Andrew’s offer of help?

Curious? Then either search your favourite podcast platform for ‘The Family Histories Podcast’ (it’s on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Podchaser etc) or alternatively just pick a platform from the list here: https://li.sten.to/familyhistoriespodcast

Listening and subscribing is all free, and if you’ve been listening, then it would be great if you could leave a review – especially on Apple Podcasts or Podchaser, as a review left on those sites boosts the podcast’s visibility and then helps other potential listeners to find the show…. and maybe find their family too.

Thank you, Andrew.
