Minter Dialogue with Dan Snow MBE
Dan Snow is a historian, author, reputed oarsman, adventurer, Television presenter and entrepreneur, having founded and now successfully sold HistoryHit.
In this conversation, we discuss the journey that took Dan from the creation of the HistoryHit podcast to the HistoryHit TV network. We look at his experience and lessons learned along Dan’s entrepreneurial journey. We explore how history telling has changed, how’s it different on a TV versus a podcast, what content is working, how viewership has changed during the pandemic, and the importance and role of history in society.
