About the Podcast

“Tell us a story from the space between.” This podcast shares stories of people, places, events and ideas from the period between the First and Second World Wars as well as the wars themselves. We seek contributors who can tell us about topics that researchers in this period might not know about and that wider audiences with an interest in the early twentieth century will find interesting. The point of this podcast is to get researchers to share information in a conversational format. What have you found in the archive? Can you tell us about a person and their work and what you find fascinating about them? Is there an historic event that has gone under-reported? Any trends or technologies to discuss? What have you read or watched that needs more attention? In short: share something from this period that will help us understand it a bit better—whether it’s from a published work, work in progress, ongoing research or personal interest.
