A very interesting and pleasant interview
Not a class. There are some background noises (a parrot?) that are more amusing than annoying. Leaves you wanting to hear his whole class on the subject.
Interesting, but not really a telling of the fall of Rome
Extremely interesting and pleasant to hear. Also very Anglocentric. Did I mention Anglocentric. The story is consistent with other tellings, but from the view of someone sitting in England.
