But to get the full picture, it’s important that we push past stereotypical ideas and listen to the words that medieval people left behind. This week Danièle speaks with Michael Livingston and Kelly DeVries about medieval warfare and how it was seen by the people who actually lived through it.

Wonderful medieval sampler, wonderful presenter.
I usually prefer a more chronological approach to my history but Ive really enjoyed hearing about topics I might not have encountered (my favourite episode was the one on béguines I think). I especially like the interviews, medieval stories, and deep dives into particular topics. the list style episodes aren’t for me personally. Some topics I’d love to see would be the Iceland sagas, the Mabinogion, and maybe a few deep dives into early medieval pagan religions and how Christianity spread across Europe.
Daniele if you read this don’t listen to that other review, please continue to laugh at your own jokes! Your pure joy in the content is part of what makes the podcast so enjoyable, I feel like I can always hear you talking through a smile or on the verge of a laugh and I personally think it’s great. Your cheer is a pure delight, keep doing you!
Everything I've ever wanted
Daniéle is captivating when she speaks, her passion for history shows through her words and attention to detail within the episodes. I listen to this before I go to sleep and her voice is very relaxing! She's extremely knowledgeable and overall I really enjoy listening to her talk about everything medieval. She's so bubbly and well-spoken, it's a pleasure to listen.
Solid show and covers in-depth a period in history that isn’t covered much in detail. Host needs to stop laughing at her own jokes; they aren’t funny and really annoying.
