The Putney Debates - Binge Thinking History Tony Cocks
New releases of the Binge Thinking History podcast are so rare they count as major historical events in their own right. But they are always worth the wait, particularly this one. Tony dips back into history for an event that is nowhere near as well known as it ought to be. After the civil war the Parliamentarian army composed of ordinary men gathered in St Marys Church in Putney to decide what should be done about the new political situation in which they found themselves. Not just Britain, but a huge number of other countries are still living with the consequences. Tony explains it all clearly and with a fair amount of humour.
