Frances Howard with Elizabeth Fremantle

Frances Howard with Elizabeth Fremantle

August 30, 2021

Welcome to Episode 122! This is the last of the off-season episodes and I’d like to thank Steph Stohrer for stepping up and helping to provide you with content for the last couple of months. The new season is going to be a bit different than what you’re used to, but you’ll still be getting all the same amazing content.

On this episode, Steph chats with critically acclaimed author, Elizabeth Fremantle. Elizabeth has published four Tudor and Elizabethan set novels which many you are likely familiar with...and, as we’ll learn today she has an announcement to make (which many of you may already know) regarding one of her books! Today, Elizabeth is here to discuss the ever scandalous Frances Howard. You’ll want to stick around to hear about this wonderfully noteworthy worthy figure in history that we seldom hear about.

Queen Consorts, the Grey Sisters and Lady Cromwell

Queen Consorts, the Grey Sisters and Lady Cromwell

November 30, 2020
When we began planning episode 103, I don't think we imagined that it would be a themed episode. This episode we were fortunate enough to have both Elizabeth Norton and Leanda de Lisle on to talk about women, or women near the throne. Elizabeth chats with me about queen consorts (oh the fun!), and Leanda is asked YOUR submitted questions on the Grey sisters. Then I teach you a bit about Elizabeth Seymour (sister to Queen Jane) in A Brief History.
 
And, as a treat to all listeners, everyone gets access to Elizabeth Norton's full answers in "IF I Made You Choose" this episode! As patrons you will now (after this episode) receive early access to the answers prior to the public.

Wars of the Roses, Katherine of Aragon and Bess of Hardwick

Wars of the Roses, Katherine of Aragon and Bess of Hardwick

November 16, 2020
The Wars of the Roses, or the Cousins Wars, were one of the most deadly and tumultuous times in English history, resulting in the death of many nobles. Today, Rachael Dickzen and I talk about some of the key players of the time: Henry VI, Edward IV, the Kingmaker, and Richard, Duke of York. We also discuss the women of the Wars of the Roses, including Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Margaret of Anjou. We take a look at the family tree of Edward III and how that affected history, and we also touch base on sanctuary and quick executions.
 
Then historian and author Heather Darsie joins us again for Ask the Expert. Today’s topic is Katherine of Aragon (and her family), and we ask Heather the questions you submitted on social media. You’re really going to enjoy this one as Heather once again shatters our idea of what actually happened between the sheets with Katherine and Arthur Tudor.
Lastly, Steph joins us again to share with you the story of the amazing Bess of Hardwick - you won’t want to miss this episode….listen in segments if you need to, but be sure to listen to it all.

NEW SEASON: Alison Weir, Matthew Lewis and a Madwoman

NEW SEASON: Alison Weir, Matthew Lewis and a Madwoman

September 7, 2020
Welcome to the new season!!
 
I wanted to start of the new season with a bang, and so I was able to line up best-selling author and historian Alison Weir. Alison stops by to chat about Katheryn Howard, the Tudors....and of course we talk about Thomas Seymour.
 
The second segment of the show is called 'Ask the Expert'. This segment is for my listeners to be able to submit their questions to a historian on a specific subject. This episode my expert is historian/author Matthew Lewis and he answers your Richard III (and princes in the Tower) questions.
 
Lastly, we wrap up the episode with a 'Brief History' - just like the old days, I tell you a story about a specific person who lived between 1485 and 1603...this time it's a fascinating story about a madwoman who claimed to be the daughter of.....(you'll have to listen).

On this final episode of the 2019/2020 season, I welcomed back Tara Ball to discuss the execution and burial of Anne Boleyn. Tara is a Warden of the White Tower, and has a fascination with Anne Boleyn. Her occupation and passion are able to collide every day she goes to work.

Historian Dr. Estelle Paranque on Queen Elizabeth I

Historian Dr. Estelle Paranque on Queen Elizabeth I

April 17, 2020
*Warning: This episode contains some explicit language, nothing serious, but don't listen with little ears around.
 
Dr Estelle Paranque is Lecturer in Early Modern History at New College of the Humanities at Northeastern, and an Honorary Research Fellow within the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance at the University of Warwick. She is the author of Elizabeth I of England Through Valois Eyes: Power, Representation, and Diplomacy in the Reign of the Queen, 1558-1588 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) and has published several essays on Elizabeth I, French monarchs, and other European queens.
 
I had the privilege to speak with historian Dr Estelle Paranque on the subject, by the way, her favorite subject, and we discussed everything from her relationship with Robert Dudley, her similarities to Anne Boleyn, and yes, I found a way to discuss Thomas Seymour - because, let’s be honest, you can’t talk about Elizabeth’s early years without discussing Thomas.

Tudor Medicine with Historian Seamus O’Caellaigh

Tudor Medicine with Historian Seamus O’Caellaigh

April 5, 2020

Henry VIII lived for 55 years and had many health issues, especially toward the end of his reign; But that doesn’t mean he was a healthy man prior to that. 

Henry’s own interest in remedies and prescriptions were quite magnificent as well.

The health of the King was quite often public knowledge, and as you’ll discover in this episode, even his bowel movements were written about. 

Royals, like today, were celebrities - to be associated with the King could bring one wealth and power, and we know that Henry VIII raised men who other monarchs may not have….because he was paranoid and had issues trusting people.

It is easy for us, living in the 21st century, to take for granted modern medicine.

My guest today is historian, Seamus O'Caellaigh. Seamus is the author of Pustules, Pestilence and Pain: Tudor Treatments and Ailments of Henry VIII.

The Queen’s Sisters: The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville with Sarah J Hodder

The Queen’s Sisters: The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville with Sarah J Hodder

March 21, 2020
Excerpt from Amazon.com:
"Whether Queen or commoner, the lives of women throughout history is a fascinating study.
Elizabeth Woodville, 'The White Queen', managed to make the transition from commoner to Queen and became the epitome of medieval heroines – the commoner who married a King.
When she became the wife of Edward IV her actions changed the life of her entire family. Vilified both by their contemporaries and by many historians since, the Woodville family were center stage during the reigns of Edward IV and Richard III.
Elizabeth Woodville became the ancestress of future Kings and Queens.
This book takes a fresh look at the lives of Elizabeth's sisters. Although information on them is scarce, by looking at the men they married, their families, the places they lived and the events that they lived through we can catch a glimpse of their lives. Each sister has their own story to tell and they may not have achieved the dizzying heights that their sister did, but they are all fascinating women."
My guest today is the author of The Queen’s Sisters - The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville, Sarah J Hodder.

Dr. Wendy J. Dunn on Katherine of Aragon

February 2, 2020

On this episode I speak with Australian author and historian, Dr. Wendy J. Dunn. Wendy is the author of three absolutely amazing Tudor novels. We talk about the central characters in each: Anne Boleyn, Thomas Wyatt, Catherine Carey and Katherine of Aragon.

Wendy also discusses what the writing process was like for her, as well as how she handled rejection. 

We discuss Katherine of Aragon's early years before arriving in England as her time with Arthur. Somehow I got her to answer the 'did they or didn't they question'.

Thomas Cromwell with Author Caroline Angus

Thomas Cromwell with Author Caroline Angus

January 2, 2020
For years you have been asking me to do a podcast about Thomas Cromwell. Even though I had read quite a bit about his life, I had never felt like I could do his story the justice it deserved. Today is the day.
 
My guest today is author Caroline Angus. Caroline is one of the leading authorities on Thomas Cromwell. Her research on him has been so extensive that she has published a trilogy called The Queenmaker Series. Today, Caroline will help us better understand Thomas Cromwell.

It’s support like yours that encourages me to keep you entertained and informed. At the beginning of the next season (September 2020), I will be changing the layout of my show. I want to continue with interviews but I also want to go back to my roots and talk about one subject. I also want to add other segments. Keeping in mind that the overall show length with be longer... what other things would you like me to inform you of or entertain you with? This day in history? Book recommendations? Other ideas?
 
My patrons will be allowed to vote on what they’d like to see added, and then I’ll do just that. Actually sounds like a wonderful challenge and I can’t wait to see what happens.

The Tower of London with Tara Ball

The Tower of London with Tara Ball

November 24, 2019

I must begin with two apologies. The first being that I may sound a bit different this week as I've been battling a cold. Secondly, there was a technical difficulty in my attempt to record this interview with Tara Ball, Warden at the Tower of London. Since I was unable to record an actual interview as I usually do, Tara was kind enough to take the questions I had prepared and record her answers for me. Regardless of the setback, I believe you will truly enjoy this episode as you do all the others. Tara does a marvelous job conveying the history of the Tower.
