Bad King James VI & I

You might know him best as the longest reigning Scottish king, the son of Mary, Queen of Scots, the father of Charles I, or the eponymous poster of the translation of the bible into English.

But King James VI of Scotland, and I of England, had some very questionable traits and got up to shady stuff… Today Kate is joined Betwixt the Sheets with Huw Lemmey and Ben Miller to explore why James was actually a very naughty King indeed.

You can listen to Huw and Ben’s podcast, Bad Gays, here.

*WARNING* There are adult themes and fruity language in this episode.
