Pop Medieval Ep 4: The Kingdom is Full of Zombies

For our super-sized Halloween episode, Doc and Nina leave medieval Europe and head to Joseon-era Korea to discuss the 2019 Netflix show, Kingdom. It is part medieval history, part conspiracy thriller, and a whole lot of tense undead action! They discuss the first episode in depth along the geography of Korea, Confucianism, cannibalism, and more.

There was so much to talk about, we had to divide this into two episodes: one with no spoilers (this one) and one bonus episode that talks about the BONKERS series cliff hanger (that’s the next one). Thanks to Engineer Mike for putting up with our rambling for two hours!
