Listener reviews

Michel Didier - 01/23/2024
Please tell Mr Dalrymple that Zeeland is not an island in Denmark, but one of the two coastal provinces of the Dutch Republic in the 17th Century, the other being Holland. The Zeelanders, although few in number, were avid seafarers, especially in South America and the Pacific. New Zealand, Australia, Tasmania, and Eeaster Island are among the best known of their discoveries. Nieuw Zeeland was originally named Stateneiland by Tasman, because he thought it was connected to Stateneiland in South America ( Isla de los Estados); it was rebaptised in 1643 and named after Zeeland. 'Captain Cook' called it New Zealand a century later. The Danish island is called Seeland.

loving the lively way history is explored and the guests add to the experience, but is there a reading list to go with the episodes to explore further?

hi, i'm from malaysia & i have been listening/following to this podcast series for few months too. i have even promoted the podcast to my friends & relatives as we are quite avid readers of history especially that's related to the british colonial era. may i request that an episode is also made about the indians that have been sent to malaysia / singapore / hong kong (the 3 countries that i have resided in too) as there is a good, long, history of them too.' tks & kind regards, -nik
