How has Britain influenced men's wardrobes around the world? Listen as Caine returns and gives us a real insight into the part played by traditional British clothing in shaping the wardrobes of men all around the globe. We start at the feet and work our way up to the head in four distinct stages. Enjoy! You can fine Caine here: https://youtube.com/…
 
'E' is for Edward Elgar, a wonderful English composer, who gave us 'Land of Hope and Glory'; or rather the music 'Pomp and Circumstance' (known sometimes in the USA as 'the graduation tune') which was put to words by the old Etonian A.C. Benson. If you're not sure what an 'old Etonian' is, don't worry, I cover that too. I cover a range of other 'E'…
 
British expatriates are both 'insiders' for British culture but also 'outsiders'. Living outside of the British Isles for a decade or more naturally changes our perceptions of our home country and home culture. As Caine (in Fuzhou, China) says; "being an expat... has broadened my horizons about British culture, it's made me question things that I a…
 
A huge thank you to 'Novice_Artisan' on Instagram for suggesting the headline topic of this episode; a good half of this episode is me explaining the debt we owe to Edward the First, the English Civil War and the Victorians for giving us the parliamentary democracy we have today (plus a little mention of the Anglo-Saxons and the Normans). Other top…
 
Caine joins me from China for the third time, having been on "British Culture as seen from Fuzhou, China" and "A Deep Dive into Tea", one of my most popular episodes. In this episode, he gives his unique insight into British tattoo culture, educating me on why the British Isles have such a unique 'inking' culture. This is a special bonus episode wi…
 
Thank you to the 25 people who answered the question, “What does ‘C’ stand for in the alphabet of Britishness?” This episode starts with ‘crumpets’ but breezes happily by a whole range of ‘C’s with much reference to perhaps going deep into some of these subsequent topics in later ‘deep dive’ episodes. You can contact me on Instagram at: https://www…
 
In the alphabet of Britishness, 'A' is for 'Bloody Hell'... according to my many, many of friends on Instagram! 'B' can also stand for Barbour, Belstaff, Baracuta, Brownsea Island, blimey, Brexit, banter, bunting, Blackadder, Battle of Britain and Bradford! Thank you to everyone who messaged me. This episode is for all of you! If you'd like to get …
 
In the alphabet of Britishness, 'A' is for 'Albion.... but what does it mean? I asked on Instagram what I should talk about this week, and 69% of respondents voted for this topic. I'm sick with a cold at the moment, so I've done my best with this one and I hope you enjoy listening to my definition of 'Albion'. After all, it is in the title to this …

If you'd like to give Thomas your answers you can contact him at: https://www.instagram.com/flemingneverdies/ You …
 
Remember Somali piracy? This was a serious issue that, for many people, just suddenly came and went out of the news. With so much of the maritime industry based in the UK, Thomas Felix Creighton was well placed, as a former RNR officer, to research this at the height of its relevance. Now, seven years on, we have a one-off retrospective episode exa…

Between a planned trip out to New Jersey to see my family over the holiday weekend and an assortment of work and health (both mental and physical) issues, I had another instance of spending more time in a text than my original scheduling offered me. As usual, God has used that time to help me understand something about the text that I didn’t see th…

Over the years I’ve been doing Bard & Bible I’ve noticed some hermeneutical “lenses” I use to help me refresh my mind and challenge me to not simply drop back into the ruts of study and application that I know and have in my toolbelt like some sort of dollar store Bible Man. The one that has gotten the most use in this study of Genesis is “Remember…
 
Have you ever stopped to ask yourself what it must have been like for Jesus as he prayed for the metaphorical cup to pass from him? Have you wondered why the same God who knew the road would always lead to cross would ask three more times there in the garden if there was absolutely no other way for this to happen? Have you felt the crushing agony t…
 
The Tower of Babel is a story of pride. Mankind’s pride and dismissal of all that God had given them, in their own ability, and their own authority. We’ve heard about God judging these people in a way that lead them to get over themselves and listen to God – but that is just one level of their pride, God’s response, and how easy it is to turn inwar…

When first the nations were born that would become the Nine Realms – eight leaders came to parley and define their boundaries. There was one who had stayed at home among the trees and dared any would-be-ruler to try and claim them. Thus were the Free Peoples of the Greatwood established as the ninth realm. While there are those who think them stran…
 
To celebrate our 50th tale and three years of the Bard & Bible – we get to have another moment where the Mike Perna of the real world gets to talk to our resident dwarf bard. This time we talk about how the B&B started, the trip it’s been, and how drenching myself in the stories of Scripture has done more to draw me closer to God than any sermon or…
 
In this episode, I interview Chris Hunt, known on Instagram as ‘British Bond Addict’, you can find him here: https://www.instagram.com/britishbondaddict/ He and I work together to identify The Seven Pillars of Britishness: (1) Humour (spelt with a ‘u’) (2) A stiff upper lip (3) Embracing a range of accents (4) The class system (5) Gentlemenliness (…

Special thank…
 
It is easy to get lost in the weeds of Leviticus. It’s easy to get caught up in, let’s call it detailed, recountings of issues and practices that are no longer a part of daily life. But even the wandering bards know that we at the Bard & Bible are all about looking at the portions of scripture that are easy to overlook or read like dry instruction …
 
Thank you to everyone who contacted me after the last episode, in which Caine and I talked about tea and biscuits. We asked, 'What are biscuits in the USA?'

This episode explore the value, uniqueness and necessity of communication. I discuss my journey and struggles of communication of the English language in the United States. Because of the uniqueness in my accent I was often asked, "When did you start learning English? or Did you grow up speaking English?". Following these challenges, I began to que…
 
Last week, I travelled 5 hours by high-speed train from just north of Hong Kong to Fuzhou, in Fujian, famous for its tea culture. I met with an old friend called Caine who is an expert both on British culture and Fijianese tea. This is the second part of our discussion. In this episode, we talk about the quality of tea in teabags (as opposed to loo…
 
There are moments where decisive action is necessary. The challenge is that these decisions can be made in a moment but have long lasting ramifications, and how do you navigate that? If you’ve ever been a part of a Dungeons and Dragons adventuring party, you know the terrifying feeling when the wizard says, “I cast fireball.” Yes, it may defeat the…

It is so easy to hide who we are when we want to. Some times that hiding looks like the image of quiet isolation often conjured up by the concept, but others it is loud, raucous, and smiling. We hide for safety, for security, and the fear of the loss of each. When we lean into that fear with people, though, in order to fight through it – we find wh…
 
In this episode, I sit down with Felix and Josiah who are graduate students off the shore of their countries. We discussed their first experiences and their journey towards education in Turkey and United States.

It’s the holiday season, so I knew I wanted to do a B.A.R.D. Project – which stands for Biblical Articulation Read Deliberately – about the holidays. There are a large number of well trod holiday texts I could have pulled from, but the Bard & Bible is often a place where we hope to see what we might find in the untrod paths. After asking my support…
