It is my pleasure to present to you a conversation with Callie from Not Another Costuming Blog. As a student of, among other things, fiber conservation and a talented costumer, we discuss all things sheep, wool, fiber, and fabric both as a historical curiosity, and how it applies to living history.
I had the distinct pleasure of being a guest on The Greenwood Podcast, the audio outlet for the 13th century living history group The Company of Little Dunmow. Considering our isolation with the pandemic, Little Dunmow was unique in how it was predominantly an internet based group who affiliated with each other and met at events prior to the lock downs. We talk about unit cohesion in the digital age, handling distance and lock down, gatekeeping, and other topics.
I have an idea for a new audio series, separate from (and in addition to) Turnip Talk and How Two Medieval, and as a test run of the workflow on some new audio software I have narrated one of my oldest articles detailing my thoughts on why I chose the turnip for my heraldry.
Matt of The Agincourt Soldier and I discuss and review our experience with running the Pilgrim Progress Challenge. We also toss about ideas of what we plan on doing next year when we reprise the event.
In addition, Matt talks about a fundraiser he is currently running raising money to help combat food insecurity in rural America. You can find more info about it on his Facebook page, through the Full Plates organization, or by contacting him directly at info @historylivenortheast.org.
