well worth a listen if you do not know Roman history

I've never had an opportunity to learn much about early Roman history, but have always had the desire to do so. Happened upon this podcast yesterday, and from last night to this morning, listened to all of the currently available podcasts. The content is vast...almost too much. But, maybe that is because I listened to all of them at once. Perhaps I should slow down and let the information sink in before moving on to the next episode in sequence. At first, it was difficult listening to Mike, but the content of his material overcomes any personal delivery style. He is articulate and enunciates well. He does well in not only giving you names and their actions, but also tells the geopgraphical story, which comletes the story and aids in the understanding of what the early Romans had to endure to become a viable entity.. I can hardly wait for the next episodes. All of them will become a part of my permanent collection and will be listened to time and time again. Mike got me so excited that I pulled out my copy of Plutarch and ended the day by falling asleep in bed with it on my lap and my head aginst the pillow. Thank you, Mike, for taking the time to create such a well-produced, informative podcast.


In the tradition of Lars Brownworth's "12 Byzantine Rulers", this podcast tells a detailed history of Roman history, from its beginnings as a village founded by the mythical Romulus, and its rise from a village of convicts and escaped slaves to the foundation of the modern Western world. I highly recommend this podcast.
