A Good Compliment to The History of Rome
Interestingly, the time travel episode is occuring at the same time as Mike Duncan in The Hisotry or Rome is also focusing on life in Roman times. The two have a different style (one reviewer compared this to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, which I think is a very good comparison), but the two compliment each other. I look forward to hearing more episodes.
If you love DC's Hardcore History, you'll love this
Very well done podcast, it seems very underrated as well.
Great Podcast, Brings You Into History
Get chills as this podcast transports you to Rome and brings you face to face with questions like: "Is it really moral to free a slave in Rome if his life is going to be miserable and short if you do?"
