A brave new world!
Great to have an easy format for calling questions. And here’s mine: in the intro to Powers and Thrones you say that “much has been left on the cutting room floor.” Enough for another book? I’m curious what you chose to eliminate. And—I have been asked why yours is a “new history of the Middle Ages.” Scope? It’s a massive read, and I didn’t want it to end!
A great format Dan. Enjoyed it immensely. A side story on the Welsh soldiers would make a great read.
Got any good book recommendations?
Tbf it’s a great sweater 🎅🏼
What books are coming out soon that you’re looking forward to the most?
Well done, Dan. The format is way cooler than the audio only. Thanks for the shout out. I think you’ve found your new groove!
Do you collect other things besides books?
Another amazing encounter with Dan Jones.
Such a busy life you surely have just seeing your books behind you makes that evident.
When you decided to do the book on the History of Sex I was my interest went beyond the great photo which surely should be the cover but exploring how people of the past dealt with it struck me as interesting. How will you restrict its perimeters (non participants (monks and Nuns) to Epstein's Lolita Express) . . .were these extremes always present over the history of the creation of us all?
Love the video format 😍
LOVE this format!! Most underrated woman of the Plantagenets???
Inventions from wars work they’re way into our everyday lives: the JEEP, duct tape, medicines and radar... War seems to get the creative juices flowing. Are there any inventions from medieval times that came into being from wars in that period?
Very entertaining and informative as always - thank you for the new twist and looking forward to Henry V and the next podcast season.
Hi Dan - did you base Father from Essex Dogs on Father Jack of Father Ted?
Great format. Loving the sweater! John Julius Norwich's book about the Pope's is fantastic.
I only listen to not-podcasts while walking or driving so appreciated the jumper description which coloured an otherwise wet drive home. Loved the question about Romford, who is my favourite character. I am sure there must have been widespread use of hallucinogens but I wonder why the sources are so silent on these substances. Given the scarcity of hospitals and doctors, do you think herbal medicine was largely practiced in homes and is therefore unpublished, possibly largely women's history? Or are there other barriers?
Thank you, Dan! This video was fantastic and if I ever get to a PhD I now have a thesis, lol.
That was a good start. Give it a bit more toime
We beed to have specificity also.
All you utter is welcome to all of uwill be happy to have you in oerson always!
