Medieval Toys

Loved this episode. I enjoy all the episodes, but this brought back memories of childhood toys and games. Dispels the myth some folks have of medieval parents viewing children as simply small adults.

Great host, great format, great show!

Big fan of this podcast—longtime listener & first time reviewer. The host interviews other medievalist experts / authors of some of the latest and hottest books in medieval studies, and she charts an always lucid course through sometimes difficult subjects with incisive questions and good humor. Just about the perfect podcast for public scholarship. Onward!
