Good evening, this is Michael Anthony and you're listening to British History 101. This is the podcast's first episode, so I'd like it to be an explanatory prelude to what the future may bring. My vision for this podcast is to provide a basic and intermediate level of British history – something the novice scholar and Anglophile can both enjoy simultaneously. I'd like to do profiles on British monarchs, overviews of significant battles and political events, and some trivia on British culture and society every now and then. My most pressing concern is the audience – what do you want to hear? What types of things are you interested in within the realm of the British Isles? I'd like to include a weekly question and answer, once this podcast builds a listener base, so start thinking about things you'd like to know but have never had a chance to find out. Send suggestions, questions, comments, rants, and raves to BritishHistory101@gmail.com. Also, check out my blog at http://www.britishhistory101.com for a transcript of each show. Until next time, when we begin our three part series on the Battle of Hastings, my best to you all, and thanks for listening. Have a good night.
