Steve Guerra of the History of the Papacy Podcast have a nice chat about pope Gregory the Great. Topics include: Slavery in the middle ages, The Italian Wars, the relationship of the church with religious minorities and, on occasion, Gregory the Great.
Monks! They wear uncomfortable clothes, they solve mysteries, they make salads. What more could you want?
In this episode we begin to discuss the clergy, one of the three great classes of the middle ages, by looking at the basic hierarchy of the church.

Here it is, the episode where we finally talk about the thing you have all been waiting for. The counterweight trebuchet. And not just what it is or how it worked, the real stuff that the public wants to know: where it is, what it is thinking about, whether it is thinking about you, who it is with. So put on that green trebuchet t-shirt and get ready to be flung into the middle ages!
Here it is, the esoteric, theoretical discussion of warfare over one thousand years ago that you never knew you wanted.
I am sorry.

In today's episode, we discuss which came first, the chicken of the knight, or the egg of Feudalism. Personally, I am comfortable with the idea that they go together, in a kind of society quiche. Also I say some unkind things about military history in the popular press.

After a long wait and innumerable technical difficulties, here it is the October Podiversiarry Show. As the title implies, this show is a review of the life and times of highly influential historian, Marc Bloch. I think this is one of our better episodes, even if it isn't quite up to the threshold of perfection we wanted. In the process of making this episode, Andrew and I both nearly had nervous breakdowns, so I think it is pretty good under the circumstances. Huge shout out to all the podcasters who helped out with this one, namely Thomas Daly, Roifield Brown, Zach Twamley, Sharyn Eastaugh, Steve Guerra, and Jerry Landry.
