Two Friends Talk History Podcast

Two Friends Talk History is a podcast where public historian, Zofia, chats with scholars, archaeologists, researchers and more to explore fascinating histories, look behind the scenes and ask the big question that’s missing in much academic discourse: so what? Why is this relevant today?

New Friends on Two Friends

Carrying on from season 1 in which Zofia and Liam explored the ancient world through stories and interviews, season 2 invites new friends to Two Friends. Find me on Instagram at Two Friends Talk History and Patreon at ArchaeoArtist.

In this week’s episode, Zofia is joined by archaeobotanist, Alexandra Slucky, who discusses the importance of studying floral remains in archaeological excavations, and how these tiny pieces of the past communicate the connectivity of trade networks and their impact on culture.  Tangents include dysentery in the Middle Ages, the Post-Columbian exchange, rebranding the Silk Road to the vegan-friendly Rhubarb Road, and climate change.Find us on InstagramSupport us through Patreon Buy our merch on RedbubbleExplore more resources and topics about the ancient world on ArchaeoArtistMusic by the wonderfully talented Chris SharplesFollow this link to beautiful botanicals from the 18th century which inspired the episode art. 

Two Friends Talk History Art

I have been challenging myself with creating the mash-ups in my own digital drawing style but, where appropriate, using the historical style the original image was made in. These episode images are available as mugs, tees and postcards on our Two Friends Talk History Redbubble Shop!
