    Enjoyed this recent podcast. I’ve been listening since near the beginning and I much prefer the older history topics. Greece, Troy, the Mongols, ancient China, Rome etc. Keep up the good work

      Thanks Mike! I’m a big fan of the ancient topics too – lots of good material. Glad you’re enjoying the show!

      Hey JP,

      I actually put a link in the show notes for the episode (it’s a separate post from this one). You can find the video here, though!

    Hi, Adam! I’m a new listener making my way from episode #1 and just wanted to say that you have a great podcast here! Ancient Rome (specifically the early Roman Empire) has been my favorite topic in history for years so I was glad to see this episode pop up. I finished Mike Duncan’s “History of Rome” podcast recently (which, as you joked about in the beginning of this episode, is a ridiculously long series that stretched from 754 BCE to 476 CE) and your episode has been a refreshing perspective from the conqueroree’s side. Thanks for providing fascinating content!
