Reclaiming the Code of the Sword
This episode features an interview with Daniel McNicoll, director of the new documentary Reclaiming The Blade, which looks at the growing fascination today with all things sword related – from movies and video games, to the growing field of Western martial arts. We’ll consider the symbolism of swords and chivalry among today’s heroes.
Plus: Who picks up the bill? A discussion of the “old fashioned” custom that a gentleman always pays the bill when taking a lady out to dinner? Can a gentleman let a lady pay for dinner and still be a knight in shining armor?
And – A conversation about the Islamic roots of chivalry with author, poet and activist Charles Upton.
