Comedian Al Murray and historian James Holland discuss all matters Second World War.
We Have Ways of Making You Talk is a bi-weekly show exploring the war in close up. James and Al have a stunning knowledge of their subject, but don’t expect a linear narrative. The boys love a tangent and a forgotten tale.
We Have Ways of Making You Talk roams down forgotten front lines, casts new villains and makes the case for unlikely heroes.

The Culture War
What were Brits listening and reading during the Second World War, and why did poetry have a renaissance for Tommies on the front line? Al Murray and James Holland talk about wartime culture and the creation of a false English idyll.
Also, in light of this weekend’s news from Russia, Al and Jim wonder if parallels can be drawn between the Wagner Group and the Waffen SS.
