Random History of Belgium


The Random history of #Belgium (RhoB) is a #historypodcast about an event, company, person or cultural phenomenon that was important to our history.
This podcast deals with subjects in a non-chronological order.
We inform, educate and entertain the listeners with explaining parts of Belgian history.

Ranging from playing cards, our royal family, politics, state structure, food, new-beat, movies, inventors, painters, WWII and much, much more... 

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