Lots of Monarchs and Malarkey!

There is PLENTY of malarky in this podcast. It's so much fun listening to Amanda, Danielle and Mike chat about some crazy monarch deaths. Monarchs & Molarkey is a wonderful historical podcast that will keep you wanting more drunken adventures with these three wonderful souls.

Lovely history podcast

Treads a fine line between in-depth historical research and some free-flowing chat between friends. Feels like you're in there with 'em. Lovely stuff 😀
