In this first episode of 2020, Danièle connects with Anne Thériault, author of Longreads’ Queens of Infamy series, to talk about some of her favourite queens, saints, and foxes, and what it’s like to write infamous history on the internet in 2020.

Talking with @5MinMedievalist for her podcast (exciting!!!) and I realized I really can’t overstate how much Rosemary Sutcliff is responsible for my love or history. My god, I learned so much from her books! They must span almost every time period in British history
