The History of Yugoslavia
A fortnightly podcast chronicling the amazing story of the now ex-country of Yugoslavia -its formation, heights, and collapse.
In the 1930s, Dimitrije Ljotić emerged as one of Nazi Germany's staunchest advocates - and later, one of its most willing collaborators - in Yugoslavia. Today, I sat down with an expert on Ljotić, Dr Christian Kurzydlowski, to chat about the strange life of the man.
So, a few weeks ago, me and a few others got together to have an online chat about the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and why it didn't work out that well. As you do.

I sat down for a chat with Joe Tripician, the man once commissioned to write the official biography of Croatian President Franjo Tuđman - until his research turned up some not so flattering things about what Tuđman had done during the Yugoslav Wars...
Today, we take a look at what Yugoslavia's neighbours have been up to. A clue: it's a lot.
In 1928, the political crisis in Yugoslavia reached a boiling point it would not be able to return from, as blood was spilled on the Parliament floor. (To clarify, there is no Round 1, you haven't missed an episode, this is just the second major assassination of the narrative).

In 1925, Yugoslavia's two great rivals, Stjepan Radić and Nikola Pašić, finally buried the hatchet and formed a government together. Then they remembered why they hated each other in the first place, and the government got nothing done.
Recently I sat down with Aleksandar Brezar, co-host of the Sarajevo Calling podcast on politics and current affairs in the Balkans. Hope you enjoy our conversation.
NB: For some apps the length of this episode is for some reason coming up as around 4 hours. This is incorrect - it is only 40 minutes. I'll deal with this glitch as soon as I can, but don't worry, there's no missing content.
In today's episode, we rattle through the various political parties set to compete for power in the newly united Kingdom - as well as those who want to tear the whole thing down....

After a long delay, here at last is the new episode! Today, we discuss the early foreign policy of the new Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, and the internal measures taken to make unification a reality.
Today I talk to Dr John Paul Newman of Maynooth University about his book, Yugoslavia in the Shadow of War, and the divisions within interwar Yugoslav society that resulted from the various difference experiences of the First World War and what it meant.
