Dances without a clue ,

Excellent podcast on a topic I have always been interested int

I read some young adult book on the crusades, back in another lifetime. This has quenched my hunger for more on the Crusades. And Bonus! She then went on to crusades I had only barely heard of, in France, and then Lithuania & Poland. Looking forward to her next podcast - Reconquista after I finish catchign up on History of Europe,Key Battles ( which also dealt with the Polish crusades, but in a few hours, so more putting it into context with the flow of European history ). Totes recommend, as the kids say.

Love that it is pissing people off

Christians/Catholics in a nutshell, why won’t you let us save you by letting us invade, rape, kill, and convert you. Christians literally massacred cities with no way to defend themselves.
