David, As you were looking for book recommendations, here is one for the King John era: "1215 - The Year of Magna Carta" by Danny Danziger. It's more a social history of the era than a political one. It even contains the text of Magna Carta, if documents are your thing.

Thanks for the wonderful podcast, as always. To me, if the history of England were a soap opera, then Richard's death would have happened like this: actor playing Richard wants to leave, or his contract is ended; so let's just kill him off with a cook wielding a crossbow. At least that's how it feels.
Love the podcast. Very informative and never dull. I enjoy your sense of humor as well. Keep posting the original documents, they give a nice sense of history. Book recommendations are nice as well because you talk about the differing points of view to history. Keep up the great work.
