Great podcast, very informative

Rather than trying to tell you how good it is, I’ll just put what I sent to my brother when recommending it.

You should listen to that podcast. Patrick Wyman. Very well done. He does a great job of personalizing and putting a great perspective on the different influences. He’s not a bad story teller either. Production value is pretty good.

very informative and entertaining at the same time!

I love the detail Patrick puts into it. He has studied and researched more on this topic than anyone else I have listened to in the past

Intriguing

An illuminative exploration how environmental changes and ravaging disease pressures shaped societal and agricultural decisions within the Roman Empire...a testament to resilience.
Patrick Wyman and Dan Carlin sound pleasantly similar in their delivery!!
