  • Summary

  • Fortune's Wheel is a narrative history podcast focusing on the Late Middle Ages, approximately the mid-900s to 1492. This largely overlooked time period would see the formation of modern national borders as well as tell the intricate story of a land opening its eyes from the intellectual Dark Ages and into the most pivotal movements that will re-structure the world we know today: the Age of Exploration, the Reformation, the Renaissance, and the Enlightenment.
