Great Concept! What's Next?

Two Funny Brits's take on historical figures. Can't wait for the next one! Good job - better than wrestling!

Give me an S! P! Q! R! What's that spell? My favourite go-to podcast!

It's said that art often imitates life. I think that while some would think that Rob and Jaime's mix of comedy and history might be considered hyperbolic by some I think that if people really examined the daily life of a Roman they would see that, say, sealing an emperor in his palace "The Cask of Amontillado" style would probably be handled with as much nonchalant as our wonderful narrators portrayed.

This is an excellent podcast. It veers away from the cut-and-dry retelling of Roman history and tries to entertain while educating - something that teachers know works more effectively than a simple lecture of facts. Keep up the excellent work guys, and I look forward to more Imperial and Presidential shenanigans! Cheers!

Great Podcast!

This is an amazing podcast. The content is educational and entertaining, but what makes this even better is the relationship and rapport between the two hosts. This topic could be very dry but no chance of that with Rob and Jamie. I found this podcast well after it had been started and it took me a while to catch up. My problem now is having to wait for new episodes!
