Oh What A Time

12:53 PM GMT+1 on July 16, 2023

    Oh What A Time… - There’s been an unstoppable rise of history podcasts. This new addition, presented by podcaster Chris Scull and the comedians Elis James and Tom Craine, takes this format in a slightly different direction. Using a mixture of wit and research, they explore the history of marriage, holidays and fashion, all around the central question “was the past as awful as it sounds?” 

    The first episode looks back at the history of fashion, starting with why not all Romans wore togas. It turns out only the richest ones did, who were immortalised in statues, hence why we think they all were.
