Show Notes

If you think Henry VIII was a violent man who killed thousands and beheaded his wives, you would be right. But did you know that Henry VIII was was also a patron of the arts, had a talent for music, was an accomplished horseman and actually loved many people during his life? Just like many residents of Dirt Nap City, Henry VIII was a complicated man who did many great things but also many terrible things.
Henry VIII founded the Church of England through his split with the Pope and the Catholic Church, and while his motives may have been selfish and short sighted, the result was a drastic change in the way people understood the Bible.
So love him or hate him, Henry VIII was a very interesting person and just the kind of guy we like to talk about in our podcast. And ladies of Dirt Nap City - listen up - no matter what he says, you're probably better off ignoring his advances! Unless he has been made King of Dirt Nap City - in which case, you only die once right?
