    Right about now is the first time we see the first mentions of the Romani people (aka “gypsies) in Europe, and that’s of course in Byzantium. It’s a really fascinating story, because a lot of the time they were really good at playing into the Romans desires, for example spinning fantastical tales about their Biblical origins. I think it’d be a really fascinating topic either for the next end-of-the-century episodes (I say as we’ve just begun a new century!) or as a Byzantine Story.

    So, I’m new here, does this episode get demonetised at some point? Or is this some new arrangement.

    • I periodically put an episode behind the paywall as a fundraiser to keep the podcast going. So far there have been 4 (out of 183). They will always be behind the paywall to encourage people to contribute.

  4. I can’t seem to be able to get on the link to buy the episode 😭
