Looking back at 1,500 years of history - from the fall of Rome until the fall of the guillotine - as seen through the eyes of the kings and queens of France...

Every episode of T+M starts with a re-telling of a story pulled from the history books, then we try to figure out what really happened:

1) Did two Queens take charge of Francian kingdoms and use them to attack each other?

2) Was Merovech, the first king of the Merovingians, descended from a minion sent by the god Neptune?

3) Did Clovis really stop in the middle of a battle to make a deal with God to convert to Christianity?

This is one of my favorite podcasts! In fact, I follow some of the same formatting techniques for mine that Ben uses for this one! Definitely worth 5 stars!
This is one of my new favorite history podcasts. The host, Ben, truly makes this narrative also feel transformative and as close as you can get to traveling back in time. It is obvious his passion for the subject matter and how much time, energy, and research he puts into each episode! This is one you also do want to start from the beginning and enjoy in chronological order!
