Ars et longue ,

#1 podcast as in first I have ever listened to

I have just discovered podcasts and have been introduced and become hooked on a great one ie Roman emperors: Totalus Rankium. Very informative and extremely humorous in their presentation I have even gone as far as cancelling my cable and purchasing bluetooth headphones so that I have more time to attempt to finish this series before thanksgiving. My undergraduate degree was in classical studies and after starting this podcast I realize I should have attended more classes. Lol

Addictive listening

I’m all caught up on the emperors now. I learned so much, and was entertained at the same time. I’m a huge fan of all things Roman...not sure why, but there it is. Thank you for continuing through the virus, we need you more than ever at the moment.
