Knowledge base ground zero

I took out my subscription on a whim, resulting in the re-awakening of a long lost thirst for knowledge that I believed had shriveled up and died long ago. Since then, as a person of advancing years, I have have found this new and legal reason to live a pleasant distraction from watching the clock of life tick away and so I commend supporting History Hit to anyone who is looking for answers to historical questions that they didn’t bother to think about when at school. Dan Snow and his gang seem to be able to bring history to life in a way that isn’t available anywhere else and I hope that they will continue to persuade others with stories to tell to populate the History Hit App.

Amazing app that could do with a few improvements

An amazing example of how crowdfunding can bring about much needed ideas. As a history enthusiast, I’m really excited about this new channel which already features some great content. The ability to search for content using a historical timeline is fantastic and I love the array of media types available in addition to the full length documentaries: such as audio shows and shorter interviews.

On the technical side, it would be great to see an airplay feature so I can watch using my AppleTV in the living room without needing to use the small phone screen or a laptop. Downloadable content for offline viewing/listening would also be a massive plus for those of us who’d enjoy the app on the daily commute.

Great work! I’m excited to see how this develops!

Just fabulous. Having started listening to your Podcasts just before lockdown, you were my saving grace. As a self employed decorator, I have been extremely lucky that on the most part I could carry on working, albeit alone and in empty buildings. Armed with my paint brush and headphones, I have listened to every Podcast.. and have actually run out of unplayed ones on a number of occasions. I adored History at School but moving a fair bit meant I missed out dreadfully .. Absolutely making up for lost time now.. and boring my loved ones endlessly no doubt.. Wonderful thank you .. lots more WW11 please.. particularly Bletchley, Spies and the wonderful women pilots etc xx
