Braveheart: William Wallace and the Battle for Scotland /// 39

William Wallace is an enigmatic figure – most of what we know about him was written by his enemies but tonight we go deep down the rabbit hole to find every shred of evidence that we know about his life. It’s an epic tale complete with guerilla warfare, vicious torture, and the making and breaking of several kingdoms. Many houses will rise and many will fall – it’s like Game of Thrones but it all really happened. It’s all here and it’s all for free on Battlecast – the world’s foremost podcast on war and its sociopolitical impact.
