Wonderful!

I just picked this up because I have a midterm tomorrow and figured I should do a little extra reviewing while on my walk, so I’m only three episodes in, but I love it. I hope I get the chance to listen to all of it. Very well articulated, I usually have trouble following history podcasts. Thank you. ♡♡

Awesome!

I have been binge-listening from the beginning episodes for the last few weeks and I’m really loving this podcast. It’s not dry at all and the short format is nice because I’m in and out of my car all day for my job. I’m from the US and really enjoying the accents too. 😁

Interesting and fun

I love this podcast! Especially how Dr. Evans explains other historians’ views + her own, and discusses the subtext and context of Roman writers.

I appreciate the shorter format a lot!! And I’m enjoying the chronological progression through history in the lives of the emperors instead of just random topics.

Thanks so much for making this!!
