Wacky medieval history, great host

I started listening to MDT while working on my undergrad to get more exposure to medieval texts (even if it is the weirdest and wackiest ones), and Patrick did not disappoint! It’s a great pairing of translated text and Patrick’s knowledgeable insight and explanation. As a host, he’s found a balance of personal and academic that I love. Highly recommended, on the condition that you’re into medieval history. 👍🏼👍🏼

Interesting and Relaxing

Not only does this podcast cover a ton of interesting facts and stories from Medieval texts, it's also well edited and well produced - I enjoy listening when I'm winding down from the day as the host has a calming voice. I only wish I could give it more stars!

Interweaving history

Love how the host interweaves the history of the documents that he discusses with more modern illustrations.
