Great dynamic between host and scholar

I love this podcast because of its format & presentation. If you’re a classicist, you’ll be familiar with the contemporary accounts, whilst recognising those written a century or so later. It’s also a great introduction to Roman history for anyone interested, ostensibly due to the concise but compelling, bite sized insights into ancient policy, culture & infrastructure. It’s charm, however, is undeniably due to the passion the hosts have for this fascinating piece of history that intrigues & repels in so many ways.

Perfect podcast

Perfect. Articulate experts whose enthusiasm and humour make this podcast a delight to listen to. The episodes explore the history of the Roman emperors, other relevant people and subjects and tells us why and how we have that history.

The only Podcast I’ve consistently listened to over the years. I think it has fast become an invaluable resource for ancient history students and enthusiasts. Well done.
