Today in 1809

February 4, 2019

Welcome to the first ever episode of Dark Histories: Yesterday, Today, a new companion podcast that will run Monday - Friday, alongside the main, bi-weekly podcast released on Sundays! Yesterday, Today goes back to a parallel date in history from the dawn of newspapers, until the dawn of the 20th Century to bring you historical and cultural tidbits and oddities, stories of interest, humour, the bizarre and the downright strange. I hope you'll enjoy listening to them as little doses of daily intrigue and they'll bring you as much amusement (or bemusement) as they have always brought to me.

Today, we go back to dig up tales from The Oxford University & City Herald, 4th February 1809.
