MCPHH Podcast

Welcome to the MCPHH podcast, where we talk all things public history and heritage in the north west.

We have welcomed a range of experts, discussing topics ranging from the Pan African Congress, Disability History, and women in Manchester. Are you involved in a hidden archive that the world needs to know about? Are you undertaking a public history project and want to get the word out on the great work that your are doing? Or maybe you have expertise in a topic that needs publicising. If so, get in touch with Haseeb at, to enquire about appearing in an episode.
