Episode 2 – A New World

The Portuguese may have cornered the market on Africa, but they were about to get eclipsed in a big way by their neighbors to the east – the Spanish. This episode describes the story of the Castilian Atlantic, from 1402 through Columbus’s discovery of the Americas.

Programming Announcement #1

A few brief announcements. First off, episodes will now be uploaded at a pace of 1 per every week and a half – two weeks. To compensate, episodes will be longer, more in depth, and recommended reading will be provided. Also, we will do away with the chapter system and go to a simple system of numbering the podcast. Also, a shoutout to Jamie Redfern!
