Random History of Belgium

The Random history of #Belgium (RhoB) is a #historypodcast about an event, company, person or cultural phenomenon important for Belgian history.

We inform, educate and entertain the listeners with explaining parts of Belgian history in this ad-free, independently produced podcast.

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 EP131 of the Random history of Belgium, we look at the expansion of the port of Antwerp, we focus on two shipyards and their importance and eventual decline. We look at the Saint-Michiels abbey, the straightening of the Scheldt river, Cockerill yards and of course Boel shipyards in Temse.
