69 Rome

69 – Rome

“A foreign son-in-law shall come from far (Such is our doom), a chief renown’d in war, Whose race shall bear aloft the Latian name, And thro’ the conquer’d world diffuse our fame. Himself to be the man the fates require, I firmly judge, and, what I judge, desire.” -King Latinus to Aeneas, The Aeneid of Virgil Ave Podcastorians! This is…

68 – Children of Mars

This is it podcastorians, our last Carthage-centric episode for a bit! I thought about splitting this one in two but nahhhh if we’re going to have one last Punic episode, then it should be a lengthy one! Now there may be a slight delay getting the next episodes out, but c’mon, 4 in 4 weeks is pretty good for me…

65 – Carthage vs. Syracuse

The confrontation between the Hellenic and the Punic world was inevitable, but the battleground would be Sicily, a land quite near and dear to me! It’s here that the balance of power would sway back and forth in a seemingly futile struggle. Of course it’d be a shame if someone else were to burst in swinging…but that’s for the next…

64 – Carthage

Carthage always seems to take a backseat in history to another big player in the Mediterranean. It could be because it’s really tough to find solid writing on them…but hey, when has fact and evidence ever stopped this podcast! So we stretch things a bit and talk about events that may or may not have ever existed…whatever! Onwards to Carthage,…
