Gadfly432 ,

A fantastic and thorough podcast

Very clear and wide ranging content with well balanced focus on Hellenic culture, religion, military, and politics that paints a nuanced and detailed picture of Ancient Greek society.

Easy to follow and learn from! Totally demystifies Thucydides!

Thanks for the great content.

JennFM24 ,

I've been reading Herodotus and Thucydides with my teenage son and these podcasts really helped us to make sense of it all.

publically speaking ,

Too much uptalking ⬆️?
