Blind History podcast

Blind History

HistorySociety & Culture
Blind History is a crash course in getting to know history’s greatest men and women - and by great we don’t always mean good. Hosted by Gareth Cliff and Anthony Mederer from Taylor Blinds & Shutters, this series will tell you what the history books sometimes leave out - the sordid stories, the less well-known details, some of the stuff they didn’t teach you at school. Each person will help you put a piece of the puzzle in place, and bring history to life. Brought to you by Taylor Blinds & Shutters.
