This week, we are covering some gruesome, historical ISH. Our dear friends Ryan and Lindsay are here, who were inspired by their recent trip to Ireland to cover infamous war general, Oliver Cromwell. The Brits love him, the Irish loathe him - but no matter what side you're on, there's no question that this man committed some insanely terrible acts on the people of Ireland back in the 1600's. Buckle up, Buckaroos.
Ep. 81: Oliver Cromwell and the Failure of the Commonwealth
History Comes Alive
After the Civil Wars, after Ireland and Scotland had been tamed, the focus turned to national governance. Oliver Cromwell and the New Model Army were in control. The balance between Cromwell and Parliament was never met. There were several Parliaments called and dismissed. Although the Commonwealth had some successes at home and abroad, the people were miserable. It seems it had been easier to be the opposition than to lead. Cromwell's hold on power was total with the help of his Army. When he died, there was no one that could take his place... the Commonwealth was over... and Charles II was coming quickly. Audio Production by Podsworth Media.
The death of Charles I did not end the controversy or the terror in England. It did not end the controversy or terror in Ireland. It did not end the controversy or terror in Scotland. In fact, it may have just begun... In this episode, we look at the Irish Campaign of Oliver Cromwell with a brief overview of two of his most famous, or infamous, victories, through not only the lens of the historic narrative, but Cromwell's own words. It will set the stage for his final chapter and the Restoration of the Stuart line in England. Audio Production by Podsworth Media.
We’ll meet new player Oliver Cromwell. Archie Laud will have his head off to make the Scotties happy and they will be happy. Charles is so annoyed with parliament that he will start belting them but he isn’t that good. Queen Mary will come to save him. Here’s a picture of Oliver.
There is so much to say about Oliver Cromwell that this is really just my first attempt at the topic. There is so much more, I recommend the documentary on Youtube called "Oliver Cromwell And The English Civil War - Full Documentary", and the 1970 movie starring Richard Harris (also known as Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone). I love the scene of Charles I entering parliament, even though it's probably the most inaccurate scene in an otherwise pretty accurate portrayal of events.I do cover other topics, past minute 33. Those topics include: The Orange Order, Double-Oh-Seven, The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE), George Orwell, Ocean, Outer Space, Otters, Oliver Twist, Only Fools and Horses, and a bonus selection of quick topics at the end.
