About the show

Hi, I’m Natalie and I started #TwiceRemoved because I love history and I think everyone should get a chance to enjoy all the subject has to offer. Without requiring prior knowledge. Without the jargon or the fear of asking a ‘stupid question’. So, I sat down (over Zoom) with a host of historical experts from all different disciplines, to quiz them about their area of expertise. Of course, as a family historian each episode has at least a few genealogy questions too! So, come listen in, learning something new and enjoy the fun.
