Random History of Belgium

The Random history of #Belgium is a #historypodcast where I tell stories from our past, in a non-chronological order. These stories can be an event, a person, company or cultural phenomenon from Belgium. 

This to inform, educate and entertain the listeners.

Wars, kings, new beat, movies, inventions, painters, our industry and much, much more. (check the past episodes to get an idea of the subjects). 

Every two weeks, we'll bring you the best stories from our history, without ads, nagging, begging or other interruptions.
