The Corner

St. Bernard

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with historical novelist Bernard Cornwell, author of The Pagan Lord. We discuss how close England came to being a place called “Daneland,” what London was like in the 10th century, and where fact ends and fiction starts in Cornwell’s genre.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
