115 The Rotten Apple

From 1371 to 1375 the army went from bad to worse. An English fleet was destroyed at La Rochelle and Poitou and the Saintonge fell to the French. The great counter attack by Gaunt in 1373 was a disaster. And in 1374 the end of English rule in Gascony looked on the cards. The truce of Bruges in 1375 saved the English position – but it all looked very temporary. And back at home, Alice Perrers tightened her grip.

  1. Hi, great podcast again, just one small request.
    with your play and pause button, if I pause it I have to reload the file and it only lets me play the podcast from the beginning. On say the History or Rome or the Ancient World podcasts, it’s exactly the same but I can start them off from where I left off by using the scrobber(?) thing.
    Even if I go direct like this: https://thehistoryofengland.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/files/115-the-rotten-apple.mp3, and try to use the scrobber, it won’t let me and will only play from the beginning. This is a problem because I listen to these at work and am constantly being interrupted. I’m not sure why your’s can’t be “scrobbed” and only wants to play from the beginning but just a head’s up.
    Fantastic job as always, please keep it up!

  2. Matt, I can’t really provide an answer. Using the kettle stretches my technological competence, giving you an answer on the pros and cons of something called scrobber is completely out of my league. When I was born, Matt, computers were held in aircraft hangers. The only thing I can say is that for a few episodes I forgot to tick the ‘remember playback position’ in iTunes. It could be this causing the problem. I know I checked it for 117 – do you still have the problem with that one? If you do, sadly, you are on your own…

  3. I just tried to listen to this episode in itunes and its two guys speaking in another language. Am I missing something?
