Repost of November episode

Repost - Apparently the last two and a half minutes got cut off the file I originally posted. I don't know what happened, but the file up now is complete!

TudorCast #6 - November 2006

Better late than never! I apologize if the sound isn't as good in this recording and if you hear extra stray noises. You might even hear a cat meowing faintly in the background at one point since the pets were not very happy about being locked out of the room while I was recording.

Featured website: Westminster Abbey

History podcasts that I mentioned:
Matt's Today in History
History According to Bob
Baseball History Podcast
Archaeology Channel Podcast
The Biography Podcast
British History 101
The Renaissance Festival Podcast

Responding to a few comments

Hey folks! I just wanted to respond to a couple of comments that I saw in the iTunes reviews....

First off, if you want to get episodes that aren't showing on iTunes screen for the podcast, they can all still be downloaded off the blog (you'll have to go to the archives section). I changed the settings so that a year's worth of posts will show on the front page, so hopefully the feed will update and the intro ep. and first ep. will show up on the iTunes page. I don't think this will change what is automatically downloaded to your individual podcatcher, but I could be wrong...

The other thing I'd like to address is the infrequency of the podcast. I know that some of you would like for the podcast to come out more often, and believe me, I wish I could get more than one out a month. At this point, I just can't manage that. I my wildest dreams I'd like to be able to get a "this week in Tudor history" out each week. That might be something to shoot for in the new year. We'll just have to see. Maybe if I can get my desk cleaned off and something set up in my home office (as opposed to my work office, where I usually record) I'll be able to get something out more often. This is all still just an experiment, so I'm sure things will continue to change over the next few months!

Thanks again to all of you who have taken the time to listen to and comment on the podcast!

TudorCast #5 - October 2006

Sorry this is coming out a little later in the month than usual!

Show notes:

Song from La Primavera's “English Renaissance Music” at Magnatune.com


Can she excuse my wrongs with Virtue's cloak?
Shall I call her good when she proves unkind?
Are those clear fires which vanish into smoke?
Must I praise the leaves where no fruit I find?

No no: where shadows do for bodies stand,
Thou may'st be abus'd if thy sight be dim.
Cold love is like to words written on sand,
Or to bubbles which on the water swim.

Wilt thou be thus abused still,
Seeing that she will right thee never?
If thou canst not o'ercome her will
The love will be thus fruitless ever.

Was I so base, that I might not aspire
Unto those high joys which she holds from me?
As they are high , so high is my desire:
If she this deny, what can granted be?

If she will yeld to that which reason is,
It is Reason's will that Love should be just.
Dear make me happy still be granting this,
Or cut off delays if that die I must.

Better a thousand times to die,
Than for to live thus still tormented:
Dear, but remember it was I
Who for thy sake did die contended

iTunes not showing episodes

Well, I'm not sure what's going on, but the episodes and reviews for the podcast aren't showing up in iTunes right now. I'll investigate and see if something is goofed up. I haven't changed anything and the feed seems to be okay, so it might be something on Apple's end.

The next new episode should be ready next week, so hopefully I'll get it fixed before then!

UPDATE: Seems to be working now. I have no idea what happened to break it or to fix it, but the eps are listed and reviews are back. Strange!

Update: In 2009, in an interesting and convincing article in The New Criterion by Leanda de Lisle, it is argued that the Spinola account of Jane Grey's appearance is a fake. So, the "text" portion of this podcast probably not an authentic primary source text.

Oooops!

Apparently I was more tired than I realized when I was recording the podcast last night... I completely forgot to mention that if you wanted to submit feedback on the podcast, please leave comments at tudorhistory.org/podcast (this page, but comment on the post for the podcast episode).

I was also going to mention the neat Latin tutorial at the National Archives, which you can visit here.

Hopefully I'll remember anything else I may have forgotten. :)

All music in this episode is by the group La Primavera.

Lyrics to "Pastime With Good Company" (these aren't exactly the same as the lyrics in the song in the podcast, but pretty close)

Pastime with good company I love, and shall until I die;
Grudge who lill but none deny so this live will I
For my pastance, hunt sing and dance; My heart is set,
All goodly sport, to my comfort, who shall me let?

Youth must have some dalliance, of good or ill some pastance;
Company me thinketh best allthoughts and fancies to digest;
For idleness is chief mistress of vices all:
Then who can say but mirth and play is best of all?

Company with honesty is virtue sure; and vice to flee,
Company is good or ill, but every man has his free will.
The best I sue, the worst eschew; My mind shall be
Virtue to use, vice to refuse, I shall use me.

TudorCast Introductory Episode

Welcome to the introductory episode of TudorCast! This is a little about myself and what I hope to do with the podcast.

Show notes: Not much for this one except to note that the music pieces I used are from Jon Sayles and are a combination of the pieces Now is the Month of Maying and Sweet Nymph come to thy lover.
