Augustus is my name

I love this show, at first I found the hosts quirky, but stuck through it just because I found the show so interesting. Now I feel like I know them kind of well, and so it’s very soothing. Like I fall asleep to it, but then I have to go back because I miss so much great information. And then when the new professor came in, I almost got lost, but I again just was fascinated by the stories, and now I really enjoy all three of the recurring characters plenty. Also the quirkiness might just be the accents, which I am less accustomed to being an American.

Addicting!

I am addicted to this series. I love Roman history. Much of the history through Vespasian I am familiar with but it is still a great podcast. Each episode flies by.
