    Episode 62: On the Outside Looking in, on the Inside Looking Out, Part 2

    Episode 62: On the Outside Looking in, on the Inside Looking Out, Part 2

    In today's episode we discuss the complex set of ideological, political, and economic processes that impacted the lives of non-normative populations in Medieval Europe, and how this affected daily life. 


    There's a lot going on in this episode, but the most important thing is that Andrew mixed up "Big Band" with "Big Beat," and the result is awesome.

    Episode 61: On the Outside Looking in, on the Inside Looking Out I

    How do we deal with difference? This is one of the most fundamental questions humans confront when organizing societies, from the moment on the playground when we realize that the other kids might hold different views from us on things like the rules of baseball, whether or not that was a strike, and whether or not someone has a big stupid face. In the next few episodes we will look at how medieval Europeans dealt with differences of faith, ethnicity, gender, and physical health.

    Episode 60: Living the Life A Catholic Supplemental: An Interview with Thomas Daly

    In today's episode we interview a genuine lapsed Catholic to learn about the religious life of a normal person in the modern Catholic Church. This is methodologically problematic, but we are going for a flavor not like gospel truth.


    Andrew had fun editing this one, here's the songs playing in the background:


    "For You" - Zeeky Beats
    "Sunsets" Aso
    "Happiness" - CrazyJazz
    "Return" - Mingu5
    "Your Favorite Place" - Joey Pecoraro
    "Out For A Walk" - Mingu5
    "Waves" - Matt Quentin
    "Dreams" - Joakim Karud
    "ill never know _ green tea" - nymano
