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.

In this multi-part episode, we'll see more in-depth about the early years of the colonisation of Congo free state by king Leopold II of Belgium. This episode might contain stories and situations that are not for the faint of heart. 

Big thanks to the resources I've found on this:

"Congo" by David van Reybrouck
