Napoleon, we've seen him wild with anger, we've seen him quiver with rage, we've seen him snuff with impunity.

Fresh from a light ride, and with his full-bodied narcissistic fury bottled safely and healthily inside…

Welcome back! Sorry for the late episode, but here we have the war in the north, with Spain versus the Dutch and Spanish. It was just as messy as down south, but with more firm allies up north, France could have a better grasp, though Spain would not make it easy.

Incredibly attractive as they may be, slugs are typically not known for their speed or for their clever plans. Today that all changes. Prepare to meet the slug who has it all... great looks, sure (like all slugs), but also an incredible mensa level planning intellect, and exclusive access to the fastest transport system this side of Prussia. He's g…

Slugs: the familiar garden beastie known for their gelatinous trails, unsightly appearance and voracious love of salad. 19th century Russian slugs were a little different - around 6ft tall they were known to roam in pairs, using their incredible influence and good looks to lure unsuspecting victims into questionable slime related situations. Today …

Why does the Devil have a saucepan son and why are they dancing? What's wrong with the King's arms? Why is he also dancing? Why is their world made entirely of cardboard?

If we want to understand why pure, inescapable sadness has descended on what was once a happy, albeit somewhat violent and troubling book, we must go back in time. Way, way, way back, all the way to Book 7 and ask ourselves some hard questions - what went wrong? Is anyone to blame? Could over indulgence of sauce or other condiments possibly be the …

Welcome back! This week we do more coverage of some of the warfront and move onto the Peace of Prague, which is the negotiations between the crown and the German princes. It was a major shift, and it is a large topic, but it's important to understand it relating to future events. And it will conclude next week, so I hope I covered it well. I want t…

Sure, being sad is sad. We can't deny it. It feels bad, it feels really quite sad in fact. But what if the only way to conquer sadness is to be even more sad? What if you could have so much sadness that sadness itself would become sad and spit you out? It's a bold idea, sadness would never expect that. Join us this week as we try once again to vanq…

You thought you knew sad? You know, sad... that feeling you get when you realise you've eaten the last crisp and there won't be any more crisps tonight, or when you have a shower and the hot water runs out, or even when you're on a call and the WiFi drops off and you don't know why. Sad, very sad indeed. But it turns out things can be even sadder t…

Welcome back! This week we cover the continuing war and the Rhine campaign that involved pretty much all the major players in some form. It won't be the last campaign on the Rhine, but this was the best way to define it. And when I mention the French ambassador in the episode, I meant 1636, not 1634. I noticed the error too late to stop it. Thank y…

We're back with a sadness bomb and some problems as old as time... Can frivolous spending, clubbing and drinking to excess improve your health, mental wellbeing and outlook on life?
