In The Past Lane, the history podcast, launched on January 22, 2016. In each episode host and Historian-at-Large, Edward T. O’Donnell, along with his correspondents and guests, bring you news, stories, interviews, film and TV reviews, and special features on all things history. Our aim is to be both engaging and entertaining, but also informative and thought-provoking. We are inspired by the notion that history is not just about the past. History is about us, here and now.  It explains the world we live in and why things are the way they are.  And history gives us insights into how to achieve a better future. So our focus is on the past, but always with an eye to the present and future.  More info here
