    Charles in Charge! (of the Church)

    Charles in Charge! (of the Church)

    The coronation of King Charles is only a few weeks away! Upon assuming the throne, King Charles III became the head of the Church of England and got a fancy new title: Defender of the Faith. But what does that actually mean? And while the coronation is bound to be full of the usual pomp and pageantry, Charles will have to modernize the medieval ritual in order to remain relevant for the 21st century. To hear all about the religious history, scandalous affairs, and vegan updates to this coronation, Sean talks to Catherine Pepinster, a legendary historian and the author of Defenders of the Faith: The British Monarchy, Religion and the Next Coronation.

Maggi Van Dorn - nope

Love everything about this podcast and hope it continues beyond the wedding EXCEPT please keep producer Maggi Van Dorn off the air. Her “vocal fry- trying to be breathy/sexy” voice is beyond annoying. She sounds like almost every contestant who’s ever been on the Bachelor.

Great podcast!

Really great listen for British royalty aficionados! The male and female hosts are fantastic! Feels like listening to your good friends having a conversation and spilling the gossip about the royal family. Highly recommend!

Hoping for improvement

If the hosts (especially the male host) could stop saying "like" every two seconds, I would give this podcast another try. Sadly, I couldn't make it through the first ten minutes of the Coronation episode because that was so annoying.
