About the show

Presented by Dr Patrick Geoghegan of Trinity College Dublin, this unique and lively show takes a critical look at some of the great personalities and political, social and cultural events in history. 'Talking History' focuses on the human side of history - unraveling the gritty, dirty and sometimes uncomfortable side we dont usually hear much about. While 'Talking History' will inform, entertain and sometimes shock you it will never bore you! And one thing is guaranteed, whether Patrick is discussing controversial religous leaders or failed economic movements, we promise to take history out of the class room each Sunday night and makes it come alive!
