Customer Reviews

Utterly fascinating

As someone with a more general interest in social history, I can't recommend this highly enough. Expert, but wears its scholarship lightly, witty and engaging even to the casual listener (who had a vague idea that the "medieval" period was sometime between the Norman Conquest and the Tudors which I now see was embarrassingly wrong). One small request from someone listening while walking the dog through central London, would it be possible to turn the volume up slightly? Not sure how these things work, but even with my iPhone turned up to maximum, I sometimes miss bits on noisy roads. And, as Aerosmith so wisely said, I don't want to miss a thing.

Actual Historians

This podcast is a great mix of fun and expertise. It's a real treat to have two actual historians discuss listener questions that range from the serious to the silly and explore the topics through a mixture of explanation and conversation. Very interesting and informative, and also highly enjoyable.

Hwæt an awesome podcast!

Utterly fascinating podcast from both a medievalist perspective and a social history perspective. These two presenters manage to tackle complex academic arguments in a relatively informal way that can be understood by a wide audience, and totally flip the preconceived notions of the 'Dark Ages' on their head.
