I am new to this podcast and would not have got through lockdown without it It’s funny full of WW2 info but us brings a bit of realism to the historical content If you are fascinated by WW2 as I am it’s an absolute must

A proper analysis and discussion of events, by passionate people. Unbiased and informative with lots of funny moments and tales of real heroism and damn fine Britishness sprinkled all over it. Top pod 👍

Always good to listen to over breakfast. If only the correct James Hollan was credited as a contributor instead of Dr James D Hollan, a well respected professor of cognitive science, it would be even better!!!

Will be seeking help if I have to listen to another Better Help advert. Christ

Absolutely fantastic! Love the combination of accurate history and dome humour!!!
Andrewstug via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/05/21
This is a fantastic podcast with really extraordinary stories and tales of heroism.It is spoilt,however, by James’s constant use of “sort of” of “kind of” or the doubly annoying “kind of, sort of” It spoils my enjoyment of an otherwise very informative and entertaining podcast.

Outstanding pod chaps, I haven’t missed one, and many I’ve listened to on numerous occasions. However I am surely not the only listener who will be urgently needing the services of Better Help if I hear Al’s voice reading that bloody advert again. Once an episode is irritating, twice is...Read full review »

Interesting, funny, relevant. A highlight of my week.
Jeff Zie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/01/21
This is amazing!! It’s not easy finding a podcast that is feeds the appetite of the history buff and is hilarious at the same time. This is the perfect pairing. I’m a huge fan of James Holland and all of his works. And combined with the brilliant Al Murray, this is absolutely spectacular. I’m on...Read full review »

The bias is quite clear to hear from the few episodes I listened to. So if you are not British, it sometimes gets annoying. They clearly are passionate and have done in dessert research. But they are also fanboys.

I discovered We Have Ways in March last. I am not exaggerating when I say it has helped me stay sane. Living as I do, alone, it has almost become a companion. Catching up on previous episodes has revitalised my interest in the war into which I was born in 1942. Thank you boys, for the company,...Read full review »

I really like the style, but the content was superficial in the extreme. Al Murray and James appear to be about the only people that believe the 13.5.41 communique. (Hess went mad and flew to the enemy). If they did their homework they would soon discover this to be most unlikely.
Harris.Hess via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/15/20
This podcast has filled the gaping hole left by not being able to see friends during lockdown. While some find the stuttered wandering of Al and over-talking of James irritating, I consider it a perfect proxy for the drunken pub talks that I miss so much. At the end of every episode I can’t help...Read full review »

This gives anecdotal history a good name! Eat your Hart out, Liddell!
Cadders2 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/02/20
Great podcast. Can't stop listening! A good balance between general WW2 stuff and really nerdy bits. Highly recommend this if you've got any interest in WW2.Read full review »

This podcast has started to ramble. I’ve listened since the beginning and they started with focus and now they just sound like they’re chatting at random and half of the wittering could easily be cut to leave you with a podcast half as long. I also can’t stand the stuttering and repeating...Read full review »

Endlessly entertaining!! I listen every chance I get. Cant get enough of these guys.

In Ireland we pronounce the name “Moran” “More-an” not “Mor-Anne”, the English football commentators always made the same mistake when Kevin Moran played for Man UTD. I also was in the Irish reserve army in the 80s and trust me that made me an expert on the lee Enfield rifle , not tanks.
karlcharlo via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 11/30/20
I’ve amazingly only come across this brilliant podcast recently but am storming through the previous episodes. It’s a great format, both very interesting and witty. It’s my new favourite podcast. Thanks chaps, you’re helping us get through some difficult times. Please keep up the Stirling...Read full review »

Amazing stories, superbly told. Particularly moving to hear from WW2 veterans. Their modest recounting of events is truly jaw dropping at times.
MatchettLouis via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/27/20
A terrific interview. I am fascinated by the entire process. Is it true that there were Chinese casualties for helping the escaped Raiders? I had a great uncle who survived as a POW of the Japanese. He was taken prisoner at the Battle of Hong Kong. The Japanese POW treatment and post-war...Read full review »

Fascinating discussion. America was fortunate to have Gen Marshall. What a genius and a gent. Well done Lads. Great show
Tom A home via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/25/20
Brilliantly informative and entertaining podcast about (mostly) WW2. Deliciously geeky at times and too-notch guests.

Well, at last!! Someone who appreciates the good old bren
sausageanbeans via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/23/20
I used to love this podcast but am finding it increasingly unlistenable as Al Murray just needs to STFU more often. I’ve just suffered him giving his ill-informed opinion on the Telemark operation, and then rambled on telling James what James’s opinion is. The man is also incapable of stringing a...Read full review »

love it.... listen over and over again like listening to two mates in a pub waffling on and on.
bigdave6701 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/18/20
Al You have to stop it Starting a sentence, failing to finish it, jumping onto another sentence half way through, mumbling and bumbling incoherently. It is so disjointed and annoying and diverts attention from what should be a brilliant series. I now notice that James jumps in to talk over you...Read full review »

Love this podcast but both parts of the interview with Brian Johnson were the best ever. Laugh out loud & then a tear in the eye. So great, thank you 👍
Wash Common via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/13/20
The knowledge and love for the subject from Holland and Murray shines through every episode. Excellent! More please on the dirty bomb mentioned in the Telemark episode.
Naval Fan via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/10/20
Just listened to the remembrance podcast. Absolute Gold. If there was a desert island discs podcast I would have it there as the one I’d keep. What a marvellous show.
Panamascot via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/08/20
I’ve listened to all 200 podcasts simply brilliant. Thanks guys for a little bit of sanity in these days of lockdown. I listen when walking the dogs. They have two requests more DLI and keep it to an hour otherwise we keep walking till you finish
Major QM via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/07/20
Just listened to the BJ episodes ; outstanding. Was struggling with a 14 hr shift on a tractor and this helped pull me through. There is a lot of dross out there in podland, some of it trading off the name of a celeb type but this is not one of those . Good banter , good knowledge and a great show .
Fentigger via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/05/20
A fantastic and wide ranging pod cast on WW2 history. The counter play between Al and James, make this a dream to commute too. Please keep up the good work. Mark
Ginge 112 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/03/20
A great podcast. The hosts have a real love of their subject and that really comes through with every episode.
MKyella via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/02/20
I’ve listened to every episode and it’s helped me through these covid days. Loving the interviews with veterans. Some great facts and some great fun. Keep it up and if you can more interviews.
Mister.P via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/30/20
Its generally v good, intelligent, funny,connected stuff, but please Al.... stop with the constant 'yeah, yeah, yeahs'.... It becomes overbearing on a podcast - try and edit out.Read full review »
eddierane via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/25/20
Pros: Amiable, informative, and a good laugh. Cons: James (mostly) prone to not just putting his foot in his mouth, but ramming it down his gullet. There must be some contract TV historians sign which stipulates they have to make over-enthusiastic and inaccurate assertions just to ensure they...Read full review »

Just when i thought this podcast couldnt get any better, in pops Mr Brian Johnson. Some of the stories about his father time serving in the DLI had me in stitches. Well worth a listen
Mark GSX-R600 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/29/20
This podcast is great, each week it brings something new and has made me question many of my preconceptions of WW2, and I have started to read further to find out more. The guests they have on have been really interesting including Philippe Sands and more recently Brian Johnson, talking mainly...Read full review »

Please may we have more on the conflict (with)in China? Perhaps 40m casualties and 100m refugees. Was an epic theatre of war and is little-discussed. Thanks ))
dbfnjjhff via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/26/20
Two hosts who know their subject & revel in sharing their knowledge. Interviews illuminate key aspects of WWII, giving fresh insights and new details and POVs. James Holland and Al Murray take well known histories of WWII and provide fresh perspectives.
Maxymaxmoo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/24/20
Love the podcast, Brian Johnson’s TA experience had me in tears so funny!

I have learnt a lot about the little known heroes, places and incidents, that is delivered in a professional manner. There is humour to grab your attention. Brian Johnson is a story tell don’t think he will be on CBBees but I could listen to him all day. The whole team are knowledgable,...Read full review »
