    Episode 81: Scrofula with David Montgomery of The Siècle Podcast

    Episode 81: Scrofula with David Montgomery of The Siècle Podcast

    In a continued effort to buy time for research, David Montgomery of the Siècle Podcast and myself discussed Scrofula, a fascinating illness with a surprising relevance for our shows. The most important thing to know going in is that you should probably not Google Scrofula before listening to the episode.

Super interesting history!

I love podcasts about history and this is one of the best! Well explained and researched. Up there with British history podcast, Irish history podcast and The history of Egypt podcast. Highly recommend!

One of my favorite podcasts

A history podcasts with an emphasis on social history. Not great-men history here. The author has an opinion, but is open about it. Lots and lots of background. It has been years now and he isn to really very close to the reformation yet, but its worth the wait. Check it out.

Insightful

Insightful is everything you want from a historian.
