We follow the life and times of Giovanni di Bicci De Medici, shrewd banker and able politician as he navigates the complicated waters of early 15th century Florentine politics as the republic prepares to kick of an age of unprecedented cultural renewal: the Renaissance
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
To celebrate reaching episode 125, we have a special episode with questions from our wonderful listeners.
We get to talk about Latin, Lombards, Normans, noble houses, strange surnames, the mafia, fascism and much, much more.
