That Was Genius: A Rather Funny History Podcast

WHAT'S ALL THIS THEN?

Well, we're glad you asked.

 

That Was Genius is a really rather funny history podcast.

 

Join Tom and Sam each week as they explore the deepest, strangest and most amusing corners of history. Each week the co-hosts surprise each other with stories on a topic agreed the week before. You're guaranteed to hear some silly accents, rude jokes, swearing and down-right bizarre digressions into 90s television shows.

It's probably also worth pointing out that Sam and Tom are pretty good at history too. They're not as stupid as they sound.

TOM BERRY

Tom likes keeping fit and active, and he has a history degree; because nothing goes together like Assyrian cuneiform scrolls and burpees. Tom loves his research and is a big fan of a source, preferably a silly one.

 

He is a man with lots of hobbies, and no time to enjoy them due to his young family. He loves any European history, but particularly stories of travellers getting lost and eating each other.

SAM DATTA-PAULIN

Sam is a former journalist and BBC newsreader. He now makes podcasts for a 'living'. He's got a degree in Middle Eastern History, but prefers a wild yarn to in-depth source analysis. Mostly because he's lazy and likes the sound of his own voice.

 

His hobbies include picking up heavy things, making fiddly things, and editing out all of Tom's jokes. His favourite historical period is the industrial revolution, and the Cold War.
