Episode 142: A Deep Dive into 1527

About ten years ago I read One Summer by Bill Bryson, which chronicled the summer of 1927 in America. I absolutely adore Bill Bryson anyway, and this book didn't disappoint. I wanted to do something similar on this show, showcasing one year in Tudor England. Just a spotlight on one eventful year. I chose 1527 because it was 400 years before Bill Bryson's book, and also it was the year that Henry's Great Matter began, so there was a lot to talk about.

And remember that I will be eternally grateful if you'd be so kind as to leave a rating or review (hopefully a good one!) in whatever place you listen to this show. Thanks a million - it's the best way to support this show!
