The History of Dictators – part 1



On very good advice, we have decided to try to keep our podcasts relatively short. We will aim to keep them under 30 minutes and aim for 20.

So I have reedited the one that we did on Dictators and we will release it in two parts… Part 1 followed by Part 2 – revolutionary, I know.

In this episode, we try to cook up a definition of what a dictator is. We then discuss famous dictators to see if they fit this definition.

You can get the episode on iTunes

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Otto)

The Oxford Dictionary of English
