This is Episode 68: A Short Discussion of The Law as a Source

Today is going to be a brief digression into the value of legal codes as a source, which will set us up nicely for the next episode, where we will begin to discuss the status of women in early medieval legal codes. Charlemagne's proclivity for pink frilly party balloons is discussed but ultimately dismissed.

Episode 62: On the Outside Looking in, on the Inside Looking Out, Part 2

In today's episode we discuss the complex set of ideological, political, and economic processes that impacted the lives of non-normative populations in Medieval Europe, and how this affected daily life. There's a lot going on in this episode, but the most important thing is that Andrew mixed up "Big Band" with "Big Beat," and the result is awesome.

The Cat in Question: a Minisode

Episode 61: On the Outside Looking in, on the Inside Looking Out I

How do we deal with difference? This is one of the most fundamental questions humans confront when organizing societies, from the moment on the playground when we realize that the other kids might hold different views from us on things like the rules of baseball, whether or not that was a strike, and whether or not someone has a big stupid face. In the next few episodes we will look at how medieval Europeans dealt with differences of faith, ethnicity, gender, and physical health. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
