Too often when we think about the history of a country we think only of kings, lords, castles, and battles. When we think of queens we think of rulers like Elizabeth I and Victoria, but what about the queens who sat beside their warrior husbands? This podcast is an alternative history of Medieval and Early Modern England, seen through the lives of its queens

Favorite podcast

This is my favorite podcast by far. James presents the history in a very extensive and clear manner while being funny and charismatic. I’m waiting for Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots but knowing how thorough he is, they’ll be 5+ parts each so I’m trying to be patient. I’ve listened to him for almost a year and he’s just amazing I couldn’t recommend more!!!

Fantastic well-researched history podcast

I can’t speak highly enough about this podcast. It’s the right amount of dry and thorough and funny. I love history and have always been fascinated by lesser told stories. I am huge fan of James and all his podcast work. The second season of The Other Half is a particularly fantastic. James Boulton is a treasure!!!

Obsessed

I’m a huge English history fan, and this is amazing. I would love for you to continue on and research queens of other countries! Or even talk about all the kings of England next.
The love story between John of Gaunt and Katherine Swynford is my absolute favorite. If you had an episode of that, I’d be In Heaven!
I’m jumping all over the place, but long story short, I love listening to your podcast, and would love to hear more.
