I have been listening to this for the last two years and it has sparked such an interest in ancient history. The hosts are funny and silly at times, but so much information in every episode without being boring!
I have more hours invested in this podcast than any other I have listened to, no better recommendation I can give.
Having just listened to my favourite emperor (so far), Aurelian, it seemed like a good time to write a review. I started listening to this having run out of American presidents - and it’s just as good. Funny and informative. Still a long way to go, but looking forward to finding out who comes out on top (fingers crossed for Aurelian!).
