    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).

Awesome Podcast

Very informative and entertaining!!!

Love 4 the chibi ,

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!
