I am thrilled to announce that my new podcast, aptly named “The Sword Guy” is now live. The theme of the first season is “Voices of Historical Martial Arts”, featuring historical sword practitioners of many styles. One of the attractions for starting the podcast was that it gave me a stimulus to get on the phone with some old friends, and also to get talking to people whose work I've admired but whom I have not yet met.
The first episode features the amazing Jess Finley, wrestler, swordswoman, author, historical clothing expert, the list of her accomplishments goes on and on. I really enjoyed talking to her, and I hope you'll enjoy listening in.
I'm using podbean for hosting because it will forward the podcast to all the usual platforms for me. That takes time to filter through the system, so in the meantime, you can find it here:
I originally intended the first season to have 6-8 episodes, but it has already grown to 10! I'll publish a new episode every Friday for your weekend listening pleasure until the season concludes (I haven't decided yet how many episodes there will be. But I already have plans for a season two with a different theme…)
So who's next on the list? You'll have to listen to the episode to find out…
