An Excellent History Podcast!
I have been a big fan of Medieval Warfare Magazine for sometime, so this podcast has been a delight to listen to! Peter is passionate, knowledgeable, and an excellent host!
You get the second star only because it’s a good idea and topic, but poorly executed. I listened to the ‘Myths of the Crusades,’ hoping to find some meat I could sink my teeth into about the crusades, instead what I find is disorganized thoughts and inflated egos. I don’t care what you two think about blogging and how it’s changed how we talk about history, I want to know what you know about the crusades. Let me know when you have some actual content.
I kinda like this podcast so far but would like more recounting of battles as well as details (who, how, and why) of various strategies, technologies and, methods.
