Informative, interesting and amusing

Patrick finds interesting examples of medieval texts and provides quality commentary, analysis and context. Allows me to get my medievalist fix even though undergrad is long in my rear view mirror. I like it enough to support it on Patreon. Keep up the good work!

The BEST Podcast for Medieval History

Excellent podcast! The host combines medieval readings with thoughtful observations, breaking down complicated texts in a way that almost anyone can understand. He has a relaxed, pleasant delivery, and uses sounds effects to create an almost radio show-like experience.

I never skip an episode!

This podcast is so wonderful, I never skip over an episode! The research is thorough, the readings well done, and the explanations elucidating. This is someone who is clearly passionate about medieval history and primary sources. This podcast reminds me of all the bits and pieces that got me interested in mediveal studies in the first place.
