A comedy podcast about the Tudors and 1500s shenanigans. It's educational, we swear. But mostly funny. Hosted by Emily Simpson and Garrett Kaser.
Ep. 106 Boo-dor I Hardly Know Her
We get spooky with a special Halloween episode and chat about some creepy occurrences.
Ep. 105 War & Codpieces
Today we talk about the government system in the Tudor times, which really is not much different from today's surprisingly.
Ep. 104 Joust Kidding
On the heels of our visit to the Renaissance Faire, we discuss what jousts and tournaments entailed for the Tudors.
Ep. 103 EVERYTHING is Islam!
Not all English involvement with the Middle East were crusades. Some Tudor monarchs realized that getting involved with the Ottoman and Saffavid empires led to money (and also screwed the Spanish).
Ep. 102 Fifty Shades of Lady Jane Gray
History knows her as the Nine Days Queen, but we know her as the inventor of BDSM (probably).
Ep. 101 This Armada Can't Sink
We discuss how exactly little England managed to defend itself from the powerful Armada. Also we decide on a new podcast.

So funny! Please come back!
This pod is absolutely hilarious. As a Tudor lover myself this was so fun to listen to. Hoping you start making episodes again soon!
Very informative and entertaining!!!
Fantastic and Accurate!
This podcast is really well researched and interesting but the hosts make it funny and not boring.
The history is accurate and if Emily doesn’t know if it is she notes it could be false, which is helpful. They dive into many different topics, not just the Queens, one of them being Charles Brandon, who isn’t talked about much.
The difference in host knowledge makes the podcast flow well, not just nobody knowing anything or everyone knowing everything. It’s refreshing!
Plus, like I said, the hosts make it funny. I’m a person to usually like history but this makes absorbing information quickly not headache-inducing and full of giggles.
In short, I cannot fathom how somebody makes Henry VIII the most comical and worst man in history. But in a good way!
