  1. Carl, I would like thank you for your wonderful podcasts. I always enough listening to them whenever I am working or relaxing. I was wondering whether you will make any podcasts about the medieval kingdom of Kyivan Rus?

  2. Thanks Vitaliy. The history of Eastern Europe will be more prominent in the second half of the series and yes, I do plan an episode on Kyivan Rus. I lived two years in Russia, so am particularly looking forward to researching the history of the region

  3. Carl, these are great and I just finished binge watching everything you’ve made so far. I have a question though do you plan on making a podcast about the Battle of Grunwald (Tannenberg) in 1410?

  4. Hi Andrew, Yes Grunwald/Tannenberg is a definite on the future list. Is there a particular aspect of it that interests you? By the way, if anyone has suggestions for subjects of Scandinavian history, esp. before the Thirty Years War, I’d be very interested. Carl

  5. Carl,

    Thanks so much for these podcasts, they’re extremely well researched and interesting.

    I love the extensive coverage of all Europe, not just Western Europe; a history I know very little about.

    The maps are fantastically interesting
