Tom Thorpe, a First World War Network member and the presenter and producer of the Western Front Association’s ‘Mentioned in Dispatches’ podcast, is looking for new contributors.
The WFA is a national UK charity dedicated to furthering interest in the Great War through commemoration, education and discussion. It has over 60 branches and 6,000 members worldwide (https://www.westernfrontassociation.com/). The WFA is a non-political organisation and does not seek to glorify war but perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of all those on all sides who served their countries in France and Flanders, and their own countries, during the Great War.
Mention in Dispatches started in February 2017, and has produced around 90 programmes to date with a combined total of 104,000 downloads. Each weekly programme gets around 1,000 hits. The back catalogue is available on iTunes, Castbox and Acast (https://www.acast.com/mentionedindispatches). The podcast has covered a diverse range of subjects from widows, nannies and animals in the Great War to battles, leaders and revolutionaries. It has featured a wide range of historians, academics and community projects.
Tom would be delighted to hear from anyone who may want to do an interview to promote some research, a book or just share their scholarship with a wider audience. We greatly encourage our members to contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing more about your work soon!
