Show-Stopping Weddings

A segment of my inner dork is really interested in history. (You can't be an English major and have academic concentrations in American literature and British literature without being interested in history, especially since so much of the literature has historically been a response to the events at the time.) I used to subscribe to a couple of history podcasts, but since I stopped commuting and I haven't been walking lately, I've scaled back the number of podcasts to which I've subscribed.

Nevertheless, one of the podcasts I do subscribe to, but to which I've only begun to listen, is Stuff You Missed in History Class. The most recent episode is "5 Show-Stopping Historical Weddings," which was interesting to listen to if for no other reason than to appreciate the sheer opulence (and the usually-subsequent unhappiness).

I do need to start taking up regular walking again, if for no other reason than it's the only time I can catch up on my podcasts.
