Many Pros and Many Cons

This podcast was the first podcast I ever listened to. It’s special to me for that and it exploded my knowledge of Tudor England. Since starting it I have watched so many historical shows and read historical books on this era and did my own research about people of this era. So it is a great podcast to get started with and it’s easy to follow—as a Masters of History Major I can assert that this is NOT the case with many many historical commentaries. I enjoy that Heather revisits topics through interviews with other historians. That being said, the sound quality of a lot of episodes can and will drive a listener batty. There is a hiss in the microphone that kills my ears, and some of them are just terrible quality. And although I love the revisiting of topics, the chronological order is lost and topics very disconnected. So overall, I continue to listen because I do enjoy it, but there are many things that can be improved.

awesome show

Episode 134: Tudor London - St Paul's

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode is the first in a mini series on life in Tudor London, and today I give a brief intro to what life was like in the capital during the Tudor period, followed by an exploration of the most obvious landmark in the City - St Paul's Cathedral. But it's not the St Paul's we know - it was a gothic church, that was started 400 years before our Tudor friends lived there. The other thing that is important about life around St Paul's was the publishing and bookselling businesses that sprang up around the churchyard. It became a hub of books and pamphlets, and was the Elizabethan equivalent of Waterstones or Barnes and Noble.

Episode 133: Travel in Tudor England

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode we chat about how our Tudor friends traveled. There's this myth that people in medieval and early Modern England didn't travel - that they stayed in their one little area forever, and that was that. But actually, they had the travel bug, and from pilgrimages to jobs that included travel, there were plenty of opportunities to get out and see the world - or at least a piece of it.
