Great podcast, wanted to share what happened with me today:
Random survey woman, seeing me with earphones: What kind of music are you listening to, right now?
Me: Well, it’s The History of Byzantium, by Robert Pierson;Currently he’s talking about theological discussions between Eastern Roman christian authorities and the educated elite of the Abbasid caliphate in the 8th century.
Survey woman: So, progressive rock then? Or is it hipsterish indie stuff?
Me: Sure…very indie stuff.
