Caroline Crampton has spent more than six years thinking about the Thames River. We’re so excited she joined us to talk about the river’s history and folklore! Featuring “more recently, the Middle Ages,” the Angel of the Thames, and the pilgrims’ version of the pressed penny.

This week, Julia recommends the Join the Party one shot episode Goat Party (with Lauren Shippen).

Content Warning: This episode contains conversations about sacrifice (human/animal), stabbings, espionage, drowning, and flooding.
