The History of Rome Podcast

Whew! I have been listening to the History of Rome podcast and have finally caught up! It's really quite nice-- good audio quality, well-spoken history and fairly comprehensive; it is so far almost 48 hours of podcast covering Rome from the legendary flight of Aeneas from the Trojan War well before Romulus and Remus founded Rome in 753 BC until, most recently, the reign of Emperor Probus, ending in 282 AD. I just finished listening to the last episode as I painted up some of my 29th ID, and I'm kind of sad I don't have another episode to immediately launch into. At least this will let me catch up on the last two WWPD: News From the Front episodes I have missed.


  1. 48 hour podcast!! Phew...mind you rome wasn´t built in a day :-)

  2. Sounds awesome, but you need to stop listening to podcasts, I need to stop reading books, and we need to roll some dice! 2011 has been off to an abysmal year gaming-wise.
