We are kicking off season 2 with an episode 0 introducing Connor Dillon who will be helping me to put together, edit down, and prepare new episodes. This is just a nice introductory episode to talk about what we are looking to do with the HEMA-Cast and where we are going to take season 2. We look forward to putting out another episode next week (with luck).

*THIS IS NOT A HEMA-CAST EPISODE*

This is a pilot episode for a potential new Podcast from Firefly Bookstore. Matthew Williams is co-owner of Firefly Bookstore in Kutztown Pennsylvania. He regularly puts on events in Kutztown with local authors, and is a close personal friend of mine. He and I have spoken about doing Community Radio many times in the past and he is at least a part of why I started the podcast in the first place. So while this is not a HEMA-Cast episode, I wanted to share it and get some feedback from my listeners, and give an opportunity for Matt to share this pilot episode with his listeners. Please give us some feed back and let us know what you'd like to hear from a Community Bookstore Podcast. You can contact me at HEMAPodcast@gmail.com or Matt at contactus@fireflybookstore.com You can find us both on Facebook. We want to hear some feedback and I hope that we can get some ideas and put together another great podcast for you to listen to.

 

The intro, Midtro, and Outro are off of the Kutztown Music Sampler by Keith Brintzenhoff. For more information visit www. Toadcreekmusic.com or e-mail Keith@hometownu.com

Wrestling and Grappling, or as it can be called in a historical context Ringen (German sources) or Abrazare (Italian Sources), are an integral part of Historical combat. And there are many great books and articles that you can find to support this idea. So in that spirit, we spoke with Tim Hall of CKDF and Douglas Perritt of VAF all about Ringen.

Tim Hall is with CKDF and a cofounder of the US Historical Ringen Association. Tim is also a certified personal fitness trainer. Tim is a great Ringen teacher, and competitor. You can find information about CKDF at https://www.capitalkdf.org/. And you can find more information about the US HRA at https://usringen.org/ or on their Facebook Page

Douglas Perritt is with the Virginia Academy of Fencing, and organizer of the Midatlantic Ringen Symposium (MARS) and the Atlantic Ringen Exposition and Symposium (ARES). You can find more information about VAF at http://www.vafinc.com/ You can find last years events on Facebook MARS 2017 and ARES 2017, and I'm sure this years events will be announced soon.

 

To add some more community involvement, I'd like to have our listeners record themselves reading the opening and/or closing script to be included in the episode. If you'd like send me a recording of either the opening or closing script, e-mail me at HEMAPodcast@gmail.com with an audio file.

The script for the opening and closing of the episode are found below:
