How to Invent a Nation - recommended podcast

Day 6754 of lockdown means I have been discovering new podcasts to keep me entertained and away from the fridge.

I found this by accident and thought some of you might find it of interest. “How to Invent a Country” is a series of programmes looking at how countries became countries. What brought people together to form nations etc.

The main focus is on European countries but there are episodes on Brazil and the USA which I am sure no one will have opinions on......

Definitely worth a listen if you have an interest in history.

Are you sure? You've been locked down for 18 1/2 years?

But thanks for the recommendation.

There were 31 days in March and 20 years in April......

I am checking it out - in lieu of the fridge. Or the cookies. :)

Emma, this sounds like a very interesting podcast. Thanks for the recommendation.

And yes, 6754 sounds uncannily accurate to me.
