Episode 149 – The Birth of the Samurai, Part 4

 

This week: patricide, rebellions, and royal incest. Oh, also the increasing destabilization of the Heian government as ever more power falls into the hands of Taira no Kiyomori.

 

Listen to the episode here.

  1. Hi Isaac!
    Just wanted to let you know, that this Saturday you really confused me. The title of this episode in iTunes (in my library at least) is The Fall of the Samurai, Part 4 instead of being The Birth of the Samurai, Part 4.
