I listen to a lot of podcasts, I actually did a degree in information design and I did A level history.
So when I began The History of English Podcast, I got in contact with the author, Kevin Stroud, and offered my services, as he mentioned links to maps on his podcast website. This work is done for free, after all, the author is putting in his time for free, and I just wanted to create beautiful information maps for his podcast.
It’s a labour of love, and I am just including it here to show that I can do information graphics, and there is a use for reading history after all. The base terrain maps are from naturalearthdata.com – an open source project, so no rights issues. A thank you to them for providing the source images for the podcast maps.
