Wonderful addition to western history podcasts

Students if Western history know that you can’t really understand it without the Achaemenid and Persian empires. This wonderful podcast fills the gap, and is a great listen.

Balanced and detailed

It’s cool to learn about Persia after hearing about the Parthians and Sasanids from a Roman perspective. I appreciate the details and comparisons between conflicting accounts in different sources. My favorite episodes are thematic, like ancient Persian religion.
