Description

On the 19th August, 14 CE, 767 years after the founding of Rome, nearly exactly 2001 years ago, the first Emperor of Rome, Augustus, finally died, at 75 years of age. His great-uncle and adoptive father, Julius Caesar, the most brilliant and successful general in Rome’s history, had been assassinated aged 56 after being the dictator of Rome for only 5 years. Augustus, on the other hand, thrust into the limelight at age 18, with no military or political experience, ruled Rome either as one-third of a triumvirate or by himself for 58 years and died, probably of natural causes, while still in power. His reign laid the foundations of a regime that lasted, in one form or another, for nearly fifteen hundred years through the ultimate decline of the Western Roman Empire and until the Fall of Constantinople in 1453. He was one of the most influential figures in all of Western history - and yet I bet most of you hardly know anything about him. WELL - THIS IS HIS STORY. It's a story that contains shipwrecks, human sacrifice, betrayal, hairbreadth escapes, unbridled sex, battles on land and at sea, ambushes, family scandals, and above all the unforgiving pursuit of absolute power. Join veteran podcasters Ray Harris (The World War II Podcast) and Cameron Reilly (The Napoleon Bonaparte Podcast) as they go on a journey to discover the true story about Augustus Caesar. WARNING: This podcast contains jokes, rude words and music.

Good times

Another great jaunt through history from Cam and Co. These two are comfortable together cranking out about two shows a month...would love a faster pace, and more relevant banter to make the series last. I know you have it in you Cam! TPN fer life

Quality podcast

Add "Life of Caesar" to the list of podcasts in which I look forward for the episode to become available.

As with any podcast, you are either going to like the host(s) or you won't. You like either like the pacing or you won't. I for one, think that the hosts, pacing, and content are already hitting that "sweet spot" and I think you'll agree too.

Add it to your playlist.

Poor chemistry

I listen to many history podcasts, including a few collaborative ones, but this one just doesn't work for me. The interaction between the two hosts is awkward and just slows the podcast down, pulling it in opposite directions as opposed to enhancing it. I enjoy Ray Harris' History of WWII Podcast, and his meetups with Lazlo Montgomery of the China History Podcast are a good listen, but not this one. It's tortured and doesn't provide enough historical insight to make up for it. You're better off listening to Mike Duncan's episodes on Caesar in the History of Rome. This doesn't come close.
