‘Behind The Headlines of History’ podcast, Season 2, Episode 6

Sensitive ears (and noses!) beware – Brad’s opening story in this episode is a bit of a stinker, involving a dispute over pig manure in Ireland (reported in the Nationalist and Leinster Times, 2nd January, 1886). Thankfully Michala is on hand to cleanse your auditory palettes with a tale about beer in Manchester…but before you take a sip, watch out, it’s poisoned! (Story from the Guardian, 18th January, 1901).

To round the episode off, this week’s News In Briefs feature a big appetite, and a peculiar theft on someone’s front doorstep.

All newspaper articles referenced in this episode were sourced on Newspapers.com, with additional research conducted by Brad and Michala using Ancestry® and other resources.
