Customer Reviews


Love this podcast, unique and intriguing subject matter in an enjoyable and entertaining way. Must listening for history buffs or those looking for something different!

A brilliant way to return to medieval studies

I did some Medieval history at uni (including Pearl and Wynnere and Wastoure - Chaucer can last as he was "easy") but ended up in tech. Recently I wanted to get back into Medieval Studies and thought a podcast would be a good start.
Medieval Death Trip has been wonderful, lots of texts that I'd never come across before and really interesting analysis.
A must listen to if you're interested in Medieval Studies and well worth a go even if you're not

Smart and thoughtful

This podcast takes an excerpt from a medieval text and discusses and analyses it.

Both the text and the discussions serve to bring the medieval era back to life in a vibrant and fascinating way.

It has become one of my favourites and I would recommend it to anyone interested in history.
