The AskHistorians Podcast
A podcast by history nerds for history nerds (and everyone else too).

Tas interviews Shakespeare-Gurl about a topic that has nothing to do with Shakespeare: Medieval Japan. The Heian period and particularly the "pirates" of that time are covered, along with the Tale of the Heike and some general notes about working with Japanese primary sources.

Trying something new this week! Tas, AnOldHope, 400-Rabbits & caffarelli got together to talk alcohol, reddit, moderator lyfe and upcoming episodes. AnOldHope did an impromptu AMA too, which was hilariously informative.
