My favourite podcast!

As someone briefly studied Medieval Lit at uni and really missed it it was so fantastic to find this podcast, I started listening to it about 4 weeks ago and it’s just brilliant, funny, clever and thoughtful, Patrick’s delivery is fab and you can tell he is passionate about the subject at hand. Would recommend you listen to this!

Wonderful podcast

This podcast is everything a great podcast should be - well researched and presented, amusing, entertaining, insightful, thoughtful... if Patrick Lane doesn't become a household name popular history presenter there is no justice in the world! No expert knowledge needed to enjoy this podcast, but by the same token even the most ardent medievalist like myself will learn something new and be provoked to take a fresh look at sources they have read before.

Really interesting and thought provoking pod

Really interesting podcast that provides interesting stories from medieval literature and then analyses the passage afterwards.

The analysis is my favourite part and really helps you to think like a historian which is very enjoyable as a fan of history.

Keep it up mdt!
