About this Show
Did you ever fall asleep in history class? You’re not alone. History can be boring when focusing on only dates and statistics. Historium seeks to find the narrative of history in some of the most unlikely places. Seamlessly blending history and storytelling, Jake Barton draws you into historical tales you’ve probably never heard before.
Meet the Hosts
Jake has been a history buff for as long as he can remember. Growing up in Central California, he fell in love with podcasts when he angstily decided that pop music was overrated. He eventually moved to Kentucky where he studied communication and met his lovely wife. It was in his senior year of college that he decided to create a podcast of his own. While eager to create Historium full-time, Jake currently works full time as a foster care social worker, and part time as a podcaster and a dungeonmaster.
