A buddy of mine shot me a link over to this podcast earlier this week as we both are guys who enjoy reading both about true accounts of history and historical fiction, plopping down in front of the TV to watch PBS or History Channel, and all sorts of other things you associate with 60 year old men who wear slippers and drink brandy.
Seriously though, this is one finely produced podcast if you have any interest in knowing a whole lot more of the Roman Empire in detail. Episodes are broken down by time periods and/or subjects, and the host of the show Mike does a great job of delivering interesting accounts of what would have been going on.
From the site:
Mike Duncan grew up outside of Seattle, WA and has a degree in Political Science and Philosophy from Western Washington University. His deep and abiding love for Roman history is matched only by his deep and abiding love for Seattle Mariners baseball. He recently married and now lives in Austin, TX.
