Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


Follow your hosts on a trek into Japanese history, from ancient Japan to the end of the Samurai and all points in between - culture, warfare, literature, and interviews. Simply stated, our mission is to bridge the gap between the popular and the academic, and to bring the world of academic Japanese history accessible to a wider audience through discussion of topics and authors in an informative but informal manner. We encourage those listeners who want to know more to seek out works by the historians and authors we reference and interview, and to contribute to the conversation. Conversely, we hope scholars can view us as a way to reach a broader, non-specialist audience and raise the bar for general understandings of Japanese history.

About 7 years ago, back in 2014, Forest Seal and myself did a bunch of episodes discussing various themes in Japanese history, and one episode that was never finished was this episode on the Sengoku Daimyo. The battery died while recording, and the reason we never revisited it was that it ended up more as a lecture, and we decided that a lecture format was not a format that we wanted to pursue. So we never moved forward with it, eventually forgot to redo the episode, and at that point it was transferred from old computer to new computer over the years in a random folder until I found it last week. Although the episode is incomplete, it is still a solid 35 minutes of introductory information on the Sengoku Daimyo. Also, because this is a long past episode, I did far less editing than I would normally, so I did leave in a lot of side discussion that I would normally remove. I thought it worked as a historical archive of something that we did a long time ago. So, enjoy this throwback episode to 2014.
