History Shmistory Podcast

Two guys named Jeremiah and John find themselves lost in the weeds while ostensibly talking about a historical topic. Informative? Maybe. Definitely interesting. Enjoy!

Learn about the Cathars (didn't actually call themselves Cathars) and the efforts of the 13th century papacy to get rid of them. Featuring: Pope Innocent III (not very "innocent"), Simon de Monfort, and too many Raimons to count! Listen as John butchers some perfectly good French and both of our heroes learn that Crusades make for somber reading material. A reflection on misunderstandings and the misty expanses of history. Enjoy!

Hey listeners! I haven't posted the actual first History Shmistory Podcast episode, as the audio quality is poor and I didn't want to take up any space with it. If you want to listen, go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDJdzO9sUfs. We are still very proud of it, as it was our first. When people look back on this, they will say that it is arguably the best, like a band you like that gets too popular and you tell all your friends that you knew them back when they started. Like that. Thanks for listening!

John and Jeremiah

A long talk about the long travels of Abu 'Abdallah Muhamamad ibn 'Abdallah ibn Muhammad ibn Ibrahim al-Lawati ibn Battuta through the Dar al-Islam and beyond during the 14th century. Laughs will be had, parties will be pooped on, and we will learn a great deal about the world inhabited by one of the most prolific travels of history. Enjoy!
