History jar podcast episode 5 – The House of York

Episode 5 of the podcast is now available in the series No plan like yours to study history wisely. Having covered the Lancastrians in previous podcast we have now arrived at the house of York, descended thrice over from Edward III. This week we cover Richard of Consiburgh and Richard of York – not to mention assorted Earls of March before progressing to Edward IV, Richard III and the Princes in the Tower.

I’m relaxing a bit more but am aware that I can still improve the quality of the presentation – none the less I hope that you’re enjoying the podcasts. I’ve actually started to enjoy making them, not least because I now feel much more confident with the software…and am enjoying the sound effects!
