“A hugely enjoyable weekly appointment for anyone with a thirst for knowledge”
“This amusing new podcast follows TV outings such as Drunk History and Horrible Histories in making the past that little bit more exciting”
– THE GUARDIAN
“There are jokes aplenty as Jenner goes about the serious business of unravelling the past. You’re Dead To Me is the perfect example of how children can learn without even realising it. It’s cheeky and irreverent – just the sort of tone youngsters love.”
– THE INDEPENDENT
“You will no doubt find yourself coming back for more”
– ELLE MAGAZINE
“It’s rare that a podcast can appeal to both parents and children, but this one manages it, because Jenner has a light and upbeat persona, and because of the topics chosen… Jenner’s script is tight and witty and everyone knows their stuff. In short, this is In Our Time meets Horrible Histories. What’s not to like?”
