Welcome to this episode in the new series of Local History Matters, the podcast run by the British Association for Local History (BALH) to highlight hidden local histories. In this series, we will be discussing the different ways that you can engage with and share your local history research, whether you are a beginner or an experienced local historian.

In this episode, our Social Media Fellow for 2021/22 Megan Kelleher chats with our Vice-Chair and member of the Outreach Team, Joe Saunders, all about Local History Hour and how to get involved. This includes a discussion about what makes a good local history hour talk, and how you can share your research in a slightly longer talk format.

Joe Saunders is a part-time PhD student and professional genealogist and local historian. He runs a number of local history social media channels, and is the project lead for the BALH’s hugely popular Local History Hours. He also is a Trustee of BALH, and works with a number of local history groups to run courses to encourage others to get involved.

You can follow along with the conversation about this podcast by using the hashtag #LocalHistoryMatters, and keep up to date with the work the BALH does by visiting our website or following us on social media@BALHNews.
