Pop Medieval Ep 6: We're About to Go Feast Mode

Mov-ember has been temporarily pre-empted due to the Thanksgiving holiday so Doc and Nina can bring you this very special food-themed episode of Pop Medieval. This one’s all about a certain fast-food restaurant and their foray into a table-top role-playing game called Feast of Legends. Doc tells Nina all about his experiencing playing the game that, yes, incorporates food off the menu. They also talk about medieval eating practices, the origin of the word “morsel,” and settle the debate once and for all: is a hot dog a sandwich?
