Doing interesting history and want a gig on ABC Radio?

For two years now, Honest History and ABC Local Radio Canberra 666 and online across Australia have been co-operating in a fortnightly spot on Tuesday mornings. Honest History finds the talent and presenter Genevieve Jacobs makes the final pick and does the chatting.

The spot runs for about 10 minutes, is often pre-recorded and can be done over the phone or face-to-face. We have had around 40 historians on the radio over more than two years and they have invariably found it fun.

If you are a practising historian, whether post-graduate student, academic, independent scholar or school teacher, and you reckon your work is interesting, even iconoclastic, make contact with David Stephens, Secretary and Editor, Honest History, at and we can see what we can organise.

There is a bit more information here. We look forward to hearing from you.
