    The Stuff of Genius

    The Stuff of Genius

    Nero’s first attempt at building a single property that covered his estates on the Palatine Hill and the Esquiline Hill was The Domus Transitoria, the House of Passage. It burned down in the Great Fire. He replaced it with the Domus Aurea (Golden House), designed by expert engineers Severus and Celer, and it was so revolutionary that it appears to be the stuff of genius.

    The Golden House

    Nero built his Domus Aurea between 64-68 and, in doing so, revolutionised Roman architecture. He also built a massive statue of himself, because, hey, why not?

    Closing His Janus

    Closing His Janus

    Nero was a lover, not a fighter. Not a great leader of armies. He thought of himself as an artist. He wanted to be on stage, not on horseback. He was very proud that he closed his Janus.

This is my favorite Podcast

This is the perfect mix of informative and entertaining. The podcast has two presenters, Ray and Cam. This chemistry of this unlikely duo is surprising. Without Cam, it would not have the depth of content. Without Ray, Cam would be insufferable. Together, they are gold and I love them both.
