On this final episode of the 2019/2020 season, I welcomed back Tara Ball to discuss the execution and burial of Anne Boleyn. Tara is a Warden of the White Tower, and has a fascination with Anne Boleyn. Her occupation and passion are able to collide every day she goes to work.

Historian Dr. Estelle Paranque on Queen Elizabeth I

Podcast cover
Read more
*Warning: This episode contains some explicit language, nothing serious, but don't listen with little ears around.
Dr Estelle Paranque is Lecturer in Early Modern History at New College of the Humanities at Northeastern, and an Honorary Research Fellow within the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance at the University of Warwick. She is the author of Elizabeth I of England Through Valois Eyes: Power, Representation, and Diplomacy in the Reign of the Queen, 1558-1588 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) and has published several essays on Elizabeth I, French monarchs, and other European queens.
I had the privilege to speak with historian Dr Estelle Paranque on the subject, by the way, her favorite subject, and we discussed everything from her relationship with Robert Dudley, her similarities to Anne Boleyn, and yes, I found a way to discuss Thomas Seymour - because, let’s be honest, you can’t talk about Elizabeth’s early years without discussing Thomas.

Tudor Medicine with Historian Seamus O'Caellaigh

Podcast cover
Read more

Henry VIII lived for 55 years and had many health issues, especially toward the end of his reign; But that doesn’t mean he was a healthy man prior to that. 

Henry’s own interest in remedies and prescriptions were quite magnificent as well.

The health of the King was quite often public knowledge, and as you’ll discover in this episode, even his bowel movements were written about. 

Royals, like today, were celebrities - to be associated with the King could bring one wealth and power, and we know that Henry VIII raised men who other monarchs may not have….because he was paranoid and had issues trusting people.

It is easy for us, living in the 21st century, to take for granted modern medicine.

My guest today is historian, Seamus O'Caellaigh. Seamus is the author of Pustules, Pestilence and Pain: Tudor Treatments and Ailments of Henry VIII.

The Queen's Sisters: The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville with Sarah J Hodder

Podcast cover
Read more
Excerpt from Amazon.com:
"Whether Queen or commoner, the lives of women throughout history is a fascinating study.
Elizabeth Woodville, 'The White Queen', managed to make the transition from commoner to Queen and became the epitome of medieval heroines – the commoner who married a King.
When she became the wife of Edward IV her actions changed the life of her entire family. Vilified both by their contemporaries and by many historians since, the Woodville family were center stage during the reigns of Edward IV and Richard III.
Elizabeth Woodville became the ancestress of future Kings and Queens.
This book takes a fresh look at the lives of Elizabeth's sisters. Although information on them is scarce, by looking at the men they married, their families, the places they lived and the events that they lived through we can catch a glimpse of their lives. Each sister has their own story to tell and they may not have achieved the dizzying heights that their sister did, but they are all fascinating women."
My guest today is the author of The Queen’s Sisters - The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville, Sarah J Hodder.

Dr. Wendy J. Dunn on Katherine of Aragon

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode I speak with Australian author and historian, Dr. Wendy J. Dunn. Wendy is the author of three absolutely amazing Tudor novels. We talk about the central characters in each: Anne Boleyn, Thomas Wyatt, Catherine Carey and Katherine of Aragon.

Wendy also discusses what the writing process was like for her, as well as how she handled rejection. 

We discuss Katherine of Aragon's early years before arriving in England as her time with Arthur. Somehow I got her to answer the 'did they or didn't they question'.
