A fresh approach

As a late-life gatherer of knowledge from the ancient world I do find these podcasts give a new perspective on the subjects by the very nature of their structure. Having guests discuss the subjects keeps things a lot more interesting than one lecturer, however eloquent or interesting he/she may be. Top marks!

So delighted you’re back!

I wholeheartedly recommend this podcast if you are curious about the ancient world. A great range of topics, explored with the world’s leading academics in the field - really fascinating discussions which are accessible but not in the slightest bit patronising...
