4th anniversary episode

To celebrate our 4th anniversary we have a couple of announcements and a special guest episode:

First of all, we are launching a new 21 episode podcast: “The K-Rock Chelsea Hotel” all about one of the most important icons of popular counter culture: the Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan, NY, with episodes on Edith Piaf, Janis Joplin, Edie Sedgwick, Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock and many many more

Then, we are very pleased to announce (supposedly) reaching 1 million global listens!

Finally, the guest episode Mike did on “The History of England podcast” in which he and David spoke about 14th century Italy around the time of the mercenary adventurer John Hawkwood

117 – Eleonora of Arborea and the fall of Sardinia (1326 – 1410)

Repost: We first do a bit of catching up with Sardinia in the 14th century, which was marked by the continued attempt by the Aragonese to take over all of the island with only the Judicate of Arborea, initially an ally of the Spanish, surviving the conquest to become a symbol and rallying point for Sardinjian independence.

The most famous symbol of said independence was Eleonora of Arborea, who ruled from 1383 to 1403 and went down in history not only for her proud resistance to the Spanish, but also for her contribution to the Carta de Logu, the “Bill of rights” of the Sardinian people that was used for four centuries after her death.
