If you ever thought the Middle Ages were boring, has Dr Eleanor Janega got some news for you. Expertly weaving 21st century pop culture with medieval history, Janega’s blog “Going Medieval” is a treasure trove of historical fact which will also have you stitches. 
In this episode we explored conceptions of sex in medieval times, how a conversation about sec demons managed to collide with Trump and coronavirus, how a 12th century philosopher was an early Kanye West and why women were considered to be cold and wet and desperate for sex. 
Warning: This episode does mention sex, so maybe save for when little or sensitive ears aren’t listening in.
