Would you like to be a Contributor for the History Buffs Podcast? Submit a script to our team:

Submission Guidelines:

  • Any story from any place or period of history. Seriously. We’ll be all over it.
  • Submissions can be based on original research, or drawn mostly from secondary sources. We occasionally draw on our own research, but for the most part our episodes are like the lectures we give in our classes, and based on secondary and peer-reviewed tertiary sources.
  • Episode copy should be between 6-10 pages, single spaced, and broken into short (3-4 sentence) paragraphs. Avoid tongue twisters and academic jargon.
  • Include a bibliography of all sources consulted.

Once your script is accepted, you will be assigned a Producer to oversee your recording, and the editing and posting of the episode. After (and while) we cover the scripted material of our podcasts, we generally lapse into some kind of off-the-cuff conversation about the topic, and try to keep it generally conversational for our audiences’ entertainment.

Thank you for listening! We look forward to hearing from you soon.
