About

Hi, thanks for visiting the Patreon page for Insight History. 

My name is Steven and I live in Scotland.

I make videos dedicated to exploring the fascinating stories from history that matter yet that often go untold.


I have a first-class honours degree in Politics and International Relations from the University of Strathclyde. As part of my degree, I took many classes in history, journalism, creative writing and statistics, giving me a broad understanding of global affairs, both past and present.

By becoming a Patron, you will gain access to exclusive content and will help support the creation of all the videos Insight History produces.

In addition to the benefits stated for each membership tier, Patreon members will also get exclusive access to bonus content throughout the year.

In relation to the content which I produce, I am particularly interested in highlighting the historical context of current issues, through tracing trends over time.

I will research each video by delving into the academic literature (to some degree anyway), predominantly using books and articles written by professors of history, classics, politics, economics or another pertinent subject, as well as articles from recognised newspapers, meaning that the narrative for each video will not be constructed by simply having a cursory scan of a Wikipedia page and then knocking up a narrative on a highly nuanced and complex topic. Put simply: the narrative scripts for each video are original and take a lot of time to research and write. You can find these fully-referenced scripts (with links and citations) at insighthistory.com.  

Given the time and energy it takes to craft well-researched narratives and then transform these into entertaining videos, I need your support. Please check out the membership tiers to see which one suits you best to help SUPPORT the creation of more great content...

THANKS for your SUPPORT!
