Great Podcast

This is a great all around podcast. One specific thing that makes it especially good is the variety of subjects and time periods covered.

I miss the old Mike

please stop the self promotion. I bought your first book. It was a waste of time and money since I listened to the Rome podcast and therefore it was merely a refresher. Your fans will buy your books without you mentioning it every episode.

Mike Duncan is a Terrible Person

I enjoyed this podcast in the beginning. Then I heard Mike Duncan discuss politics on another podcast. He is snide and dismissive of people who disagree with him. At the same time, he’s woefully ignorant of what those people think. Things are tense in the USA these days, and I don’t recommend giving your money or attention to people like this who are making the problem worse. There are plenty of great podcasts out there whose hosts don’t smear half their audience. Listen to those.
