    Chaos.



    The orderly rhythm of attacks… and the steady wall of the war hedge had dissolved, and it was replaced by a raging melee.

    To Kill a Legend

    Here is how you probably heard the story of the Battle of Hastings. William the Conqueror boarded a ship, won a battle at Hastings, and was crowned King.



    Kingdom. Conqueror. Conquered.

    Ok, where were we?

    With all this focus on culture, it’s been a little bit since we last talked about the political situation in Britain.  So lets remind ourselves of where things were politically.

Part of me now

I listened to this podcast daily until I was caught up. Now I anxiously wait till the next episode comes out. I have learned so much. I consider Jamie my commute friend. I have gone back to episode 281’s ending multiple times and shared it with friends and family. His narration in the last 45 seconds makes my hairs stand on end. I find him to be a master storyteller and love how he brings his personality and sense of humor into his podcast. I highly recommend this show.

Things you never learned, well researched and entertainingly presented.

This podcast starts with the Roman time period and does a fantastic job storytelling (to date) through to the battle of Hastings.

This is a great podcast that is easy to listen to, will teach you a lot about British history in well researched and referenced episodes - with perspectives not often given when learning history on the society and not just the story of the rulers when possible.

The BHP is supported though it’s subscription service that is 5 bucks a month. Since I’ve had hours of entertainment I signed up, and found I had an extra 118 episodes of content! Including ghost stories from the Anglo-Saxon time period.

Mastery level story telling while having a laser focus on finding primary, secondary, or tertiary sources and letting us know which he is referencing.

I started off a casual listener, then became a fan and subscriber because it’s worth it.
