The History of Rome - Podcast by Mike Duncan


The Roman period is one of the most interesting eras of all time, and I love going there - there’s always something new (old stuff) to see.

am halfway through … the years 100 BC to 100 AD put current politics into perspective: the personalities and motivations are the same, the only real difference I see is that far fewer persons get their heads (literally) chopped off.

And “civil war” is now conducted on teevee, woohoo!

anyway, amazing podcast.

an Interesting – compelling – new thesis on the Fall of the Empire
