Just the Facts, Ma’am

I enjoy so much of your thoughtful research on this period in Roman history. I could, however, do without spurious insults on Christianity by Cameron. Nor do I enjoy the unsavory, puerile sexual joking around. The history is fascinating.

Great if you’re in middle school.

Painful to listen to grown men trying to be 14 year old boys. It gets in the way of the information their tryin to impart.
Unsubscribing immediately.

Really can’t past the blatant homophobia

The constant homophobic spurious comments is completely unacceptable. But worse, is the amount of times they really get things wrong, or just guess at what something means, often thru some twisted modern lens. Twisted? Yes, they are homophobic and misogynistic in their comments (the juvenile and not funny gay-rape and wife-as-a-shrew jokes abound). Then they look at another time period and others lives thru this twisted lens, and it doesn’t work. Small minds trying to understand and explain a great mind is ludicrous.

Many times podcasts like this start out bad but get better as they go, and by episode 10 they are rolling along. This just gets worse and worse. One of them also looks at Caesar thru a Napoleonic lens as well as a “modern” lens. It’s really annoying. There is a quote from Caesar that uses the word “kings” as a generic term for ruler and they don’t seem to be able to understand what it means. They relate it to something they heard about Romans despising kings (probably from junior high history class), showing a superficial knowledge of the subject at best. How do you not understand the use the of the word in this context? They just guess, and get it wrong, and then double down by repeating it the next episode. Which means they didn’t even follow up and research it, and instead chose to wallow in their ignorance. This is supposed to be a history podcast. They are so concerned with trying to be cute and funny instead of informative, that they accomplish neither. There are much funnier people at my work than these guys.
