    158. 590s BC Part 4 - The hits keep rolling in!

    Why is Dan sad? Is it because there are more guys in the infant Roman senate than what’s left of the whole mighty Assyrian Empire? Or is because we kill off a whole lot of “Great Civilizations of the Past”? Listen to find out! That plus a nice piece of grass, and what 5 guys are doing in a basement somewhere in the Hatti-land.

What a great way to learn history without paying for an overvalued professor at an unaffordable American College. The knowledge and the work done to obtain the knowledge by Dan and Bernie makes this a go to podcast for any history fan or fan of podcasts. 5 stars and a Patreon Subscriber

Amazingly boring

These 2 douche bags reading and repeating could only be more interesting if one of them was banging a married women……wait,….at least one of them is……

Great Show

This podcast is extremely educational and backed by verifiable sources for you to check out on your own if you want to learn even more than they already talked about. Extremely entertaining for history buffs like myself.
