Hello. my name is Michael Tinker Pearce and I am the Swordgeek. I have lived an unquiet life prior to settling down to a life as a sword-maker in the early 1990’s. I started studying swords in the late 1970’s and may have learned a thing or two over the years and even developed the odd opinion here and there… Overcoming my oft-commented-on ‘shy-school-boy-reticence’ I have launched this podcast to share that knowledge and those opinions with you. I hope that you will find ‘The Sword Geek’ both informative and entertaining. You can see my work or if you are not into swords I have You can also find these pages on Facebook as well.
Unfortunately due to Russian Bots spamming me to death I’ve had to disallow comments. Follow me and comment on Facebook and twitter!

  2. Itunes is saying that your Podcast is not available in the USA right now? What’s up with that? I got the first five isssues on Itunes without any problems, then all of a sudden they dissapeared off itunes and I can’t get them back?!

  3. When we switched to the new format on the web-page we seemed to have baked little apple brains at Itunes and they decided that it’s a new and different podcast that needs to be reviewed. Again. So until they do it won’t be available and God knows when they might do that. In the meantime you should be able to download via the RSS feeds and import into iTunes for remote listening. We’ll let you know as soon as iTunes figures things out…
