We get spooky with a special Halloween episode and chat about some creepy occurrences. 

Oct 16, 2019

Today we talk about the government system in the Tudor times, which really is not much different from today's surprisingly.

Oct 9, 2019

On the heels of our visit to the Renaissance Faire, we discuss what jousts and tournaments entailed for the Tudors.

Oct 2, 2019

Not all English involvement with the Middle East were crusades. Some Tudor monarchs realized that getting involved with the Ottoman and Saffavid empires led to money (and also screwed the Spanish).

Sep 25, 2019

History knows her as the Nine Days Queen, but we know her as the inventor of BDSM (probably).

Sep 11, 2019

It did. 

We discuss how exactly little England managed to defend itself from the powerful Armada. Also we decide on a new podcast.

 

 

Sep 4, 2019

We celebrate 100 episodes of Tudor, I Hardly Know her by discussing the impact of the Tudors. 

Aug 28, 2019

We finally sit down to learn about Thomas More, who had a good run of it until Henry cut off his head.

Aug 21, 2019

Apparently the rest of the world had some stuff going on yoo during the Tudor reign, so we chat about that and flat earthers.

Aug 14, 2019

Today we talk about the awesome Bess of Hardwick, who hosted a great late-night game show and also survived the Tudor reign. 

Jul 31, 2019

Today, in one of our more serious episodes, we discuss the lives of black Tudors.

Jul 24, 2019

We talk about the martyr Anne Askew (the topic may have been slightly repeated, but the jokes are all new!)

 

Jul 17, 2019

Catherine of Aragon had an adventurous childhood. Don't worry, she experienced a lot of sad stuff, too.

Jul 10, 2019

You asked and we delivered. We sat down to watch the first episodes of The Spanish Princess, and boy do we have some thoughts. 

Jun 26, 2019

Emily got to see Six The Musical in Chicago, and, spoilers, it was so amazing. Hoping Henry the Baeth makes an appearance in the extended version.

 

P.S. make sure to listen to the end for fun treats.

Jun 19, 2019

Henry VIII, International Man of Mystery, had quite a few wives. But he almost had more! Or at least different wives. So who were these women who narrowly escaped what was sure to be an unhappy marriage? 

Jun 12, 2019

Love 'em or Cleve 'em.

The 1540s had some serious gossip going on about Anne of Cleves, and some modern historians are just adding to the crazy. 

May 29, 2019

Jeff and Garrett offer their thoughts on popular Anne Boleyn theories and questions, including whether she did have that extra finger and if she really loved Henry. 

May 22, 2019

Anne Boleyn's life may have ended with the swing of a sword, but her ladies still had to deal with the details of her burial, which Henry so kindly ignored. Plus, what became of that famous "B" necklace? 

May 15, 2019

We continue our Anne Boleyn month but talking about Anne's youth in the courts of some of the most fascinating women of these time. 

 

May 8, 2019

We finally sit down to discuss The Other Boleyn Girl. What did Garrett and Jeff think? Why was Phillipa Gregory so free with history? How on earth was the movie so bad? Listen to find out!

Mar 5, 2019

We discuss a variety of Tudor topics, including Tudor myths and folklore.

Jan 28, 2019

Anne Boleyn certainly had a thing for men named Henry. 

We chat about Henry Percy, Anne Boleyn’s one-time-love-interest.

Jan 14, 2019

 We’re back!

Once again, we discuss Mary, Queen of Scots. But this time, we talk about the movie! Hear what Emily thought of the story, costume, actresses, and more!

Tonight, on Unsolved Mysteries: we discuss Amy Robsart’s unfortunate and mysterious death. Was Robert involved? Did Queen Elizabeth have her romantic rival put to death? We will look into this and more, on Unsolved Mysteries. (Cue creepy music that haunts everyone.)
