Good evening, everyone, this is Michael Anthony. I’m sorry to say this week is going to have to be an off-week for British History 101 – I have just started a new job, and the demands related to this beginning have been incredibly time consuming. Most workdays are running from 8 AM until about 3 or 4 AM the next morning, so needless to say I’ve had to prioritize a bit this week and getting myself established and settled has been extremely time-consuming – I’ve done what I can on the podcast, but unfortunately I’ve simply not had enough time to complete an episode. I assure you, however, that there will be one next week. That is a personal guarantee.
Also – I am working on correcting my audio problems. Dan from New Zealand has graciously offered to help and is working with me from literally around the world. We are doing our best to get British History 101 up to its full potential as quickly as possible. Thank you, Dan, for your assistance.
With that, I thank you all so very much for tuning in this week, and again apologize for not having something substantial at the moment. I appreciate the absolute outpouring of support from all of British History 101’s listeners and am incredibly grateful for the help everyone has offered. Thanks again, and we will most assuredly talk again next week. Have a great evening.

Very much enjoying your podcasts and looking forward to more. Would like to hear about Cromwell and the English Civil War, when you get a chance!

Good work, Michael
You did a great job with the Norman conquest.
I congratulate you on your brevity for such a complex moment in history.
Last year I tried covering the subject for an English conversation group in France, as 1066 had such far-reaching consequences for both Britain and France.
I got them thouroughly confused. I think I'll give it another go with your version.

Could you give us a little overview of some of those consequences, notably on the changes in the English language, and also the Hundred Years War and Joan of Arc.

Regards,
Cynthia
