John Morrill, whose work I first encountered in Mike Duncan's podcast about the English Revolution, joins me to discuss the career of Oliver Cromwell. Cromwell was attacked in his time for being both too radical and not radical enough, and the picture has only gotten more complicated from there. John and I discuss his career, his convictions, his relationship to radicals like the Levellers and the Diggers, and how we should remember him today.

To see John discuss these issues in the glorious blurriness of 80s television, I highly recommend this YouTube video:
