Featuring snippets from Helen’s sell-out Members’ lecture in November last year, the third episode of Membercast examines the woman at the heart of the myth of Joan of Arc. Helen provides fascinating insights into the faith, trial and ultimate downfall of The Maid of Orléans, and together with Iszi, finds some surprising parallels with popular culture.
The British Museum Membercast is a monthly podcast made available to ‘all studious and curious persons’. Comedian, podcaster and super-fan Iszi Lawrence (The Z List Dead List) presents snippets from exclusive Members’ lectures at the Museum, artfully woven together with interviews and her own musings.
