Great Episode. I was wondering if you were gonna make a long episode for the tenth century like you had for all the previous ones. However, I noticed at one point that you mentioned that the Fatimids were Shia while discussing the Buyids in a way that made it seem like that was a problem for the Buyids, but they were also actually a Shia dynasty.
