Do I want to hear a podcast about 100ish stolen objects? No. The British Museum is a thug museum.

This is an extraordinary podcast. When I visit and revisit the British Museum I go in search of all 101 objects. I love this podcast.

BBC should have left the original 100 objects Instead they decided to commission the wokefest that is the 101st object. “I have 5 people who I call my best friends ……. I’ve never actually met them” Lord have mercy if this is the future of the human race.

Each episode uses a single museum artefact as the focus of a portrait of a part of human history from the first flint axes to the present day. Guest experts talk about the item and its context. The series moves all over the world. The series moves in rough chronological order, so best listened...Read full review »

Such an elevating, moving, and thought-provoking work. An incredible journey through time and culture, that opens windows into the development of the human psyche. This podcast takes me to a place of peace and reconciliation, and provides some perspective when such a thing feels far away. Treat...Read full review »

I loved listening to this series when it was originally broadcast. I am looking forward to listening to it again. Thank you. I am very sad that negative reviews seem to take precedence. I have really enjoyed the BBC, and particularly BBC Sounds, especially over the last year. I think that the...Read full review »

Today was the proudest moment of my year. I cancelled my BBC license fee. This had been a long time coming due to the continual stream of lies, identity politics and woke authoritarianism emanating from every pore of the once great BBC, but listening to this shameful 10 year update gave me the...Read full review »

Such a well written and researched series!
XhrisJazz via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/25/20
My only qualm with the podcast is that I wish the episodes were longer and contained more detail. Absolutely excellent in all other respects, interesting and informative.

Came back to this podcast recently after an almost 10 year hiatus. Fantastic listening and fascinating stories....I really must buy the book!

Truly wonderful lockdown listening.
Ralph#1sproker via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/24/20
Very interesting historical podcast. The concept - to show human history through the material objects, really cool. The only flaw is that in audio-format you don't see this objects, so you need an internet connection to google them. But nevertheless it was very informative. Thanks to The...Read full review »

A wonderful look back in time at important objects that shaped our world. It took me a little while to get used to his voice, but by the end I wanted another 900 objects.
k9mac via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/20
Very informative and concise! A perfect podcast to inform you on our history and all in a quarter of an hour!!! Absolutely Love this series!
Slenster via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/01/20
This is my absolute favorite podcast of all time! Being a science and history buff this series touches on so many profound things from humanity, our thoughts, our actions, our ideas, all told by the objects in this series. I look forward to seeing them in person at the British Museum.

Perfect series to take your mind off covidean pandemic
Tangled garden via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/21/20
I have listened to this podcast all the way through twice, and will probably do so again in the future. Each episode gives a quick glimpse into a particular human culture (many of which I knew little to nothing about, and some of which had never heard of), and taken together they paint a picture...Read full review »

I learned so much - and on so many subjects... 100 objects are not enough!
danubsky via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/20
With all the objects in the museum, please consider doing more episodes.

I’ve listened to this podcast at bedtime almost every night for the past 4 years. Some of my favorite episodes are pieces of eight, the pepper pot, the otter pipe, and the hand axe. Between the measured British accents, musical bumpers and benign subject material, my mind locks into the podcast...Read full review »

Great selection of historical artifacts that are each explained with context by experts in the relevant field. Excellent production and learning tool.
sysgirl via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/24/19
Great podcast with high production quality and fascinating stories. Each episode is like a fresh visit to the British Museum, and I am learning to appreciate more the intricate stories that these eclectic objects tell. Very entertaining!

Good for listening in your free time. Very interesting

Sometimes you don't want or have time for a deep dive on history. This podcast is quick and informative and with an object/image backing up each story I found it brilliant.Read full review »

Összeszedett jó kis anyag, ahol bámulatos az összefüggések felvillantása.

This is the first podcast I ever fell in love with.
Danermal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/18/18
Totally inspired
Kiteboy1 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/27/18
A beautifully executed narrative of the British Museum collection, taking a single object in each episode, telling its story and its place in history. It’s a unique project, fascinating and revealing.
Cotie66 via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 04/18/18
Definitely worth a listen if you like history. Seen from very different viewpoints, it’s a wonderful listen. I just wish they were longer than 15 mins per episode
Beardybaer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/12/18
I’m done now but I found this best in doses of 3 interspersed with my regular news and occasional fiction. Best listened to in order.
PhelineCat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/08/18
Listened to every episode at least twice. Its inspiring in so many ways!
Morten F T via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 01/31/18
Great idea for a podcast but each episode is only 14 minutes long and close to half of that is overproduced music bumpers and show intro. Each of these objects could have produced hours of content. Instead the 8 or so minutes of actual content consists of incredibly pat analysis often by...Read full review »

I love that I can play the episodes in any order, and refer to the objects on BBC website. The history is made very real by reference to an object, this podcast is like walking through a museum.
Omwhatever via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/18
Simply the best podcast - I’ve listened to it again & again. Thanks for making it.
Africaphile via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/09/17
A brilliant podcast, full of interesting facts and anecdotes that give you a wide understanding of the main points of the world’s history, never being boring. You must then complete your journey across the world eras on the website, where you’ll find not only the closeups of the objects...Read full review »

Mumbles, background noise, unintelligible accents....check out History of Rome and hear what a professional podcast sounds like.
