Great podcast

I am a tired kindergarten teacher / mom who needs adult substance after talking to 5 year olds all day. I love this podcast. I listen to it while I clean and pretty much do anything.

Hail to Caesar, Hail to Duncan

Immediately approachable and endlessly fascinating, this podcast is like none other. I’m more than happy to have spent 6 months listening to the 179 original episodes. If you have any interest in history, look no further than this sensational podcast.

Simply, among the best podcasts.

The History of Rome is, hands down, the best history podcast to ever be recorded and among the best podcasts ever to boot. It’s required reading, it’s endearing, it’s detailed but not dry. It’s a ten star podcast.

What podcasting is supposed to be

I’ve sifted and sorted through so many ill produced podcasts before coming across this gem. Duncan put together this amazing compilation and delivers it with clarity, dry humor, and an eloquence that reveals his passion for history. Sadly, other podcasts lace their product with advertisements and pay structures to clutter the delivery, but this podcast is truly enjoyable to listen to as you absorb the human experience of conflict through the Roman era.

Excellent, informative, and humorous.

Mike delivers a timeless summary of Roman History that is clean and easily understandable in our present time. I've personally listned to this entire selection multiple times and I still will return to this work periodically as the mood hits me. Mike has a great dry and sarcastic humor that brings these people to life again.

Well Sourced History and Dry Humor

Can listening to History Podcasts be relaxing escapism? Yes it can. The History of Rome is a skillful overview with the author’s particular light touch of dry humor which reminds me that while what I’m hearing is a broad historical brush it is also about people being their imperfect selves with all the folly and glory that goes with it. As a History Junkie, this is the sweet spot.

Simply amazing

I find myself listening to this over and over again. Quite simply one of the best history podcasts ever made. Would recommend to any history buff, and if you're looking to continue the story after 476, check out The History of Byzantium as well!

Podcasting Done Right

Mike, thank you for creating this absolute gem of a podcast. Moving to a new city and not having any data or WiFi, your podcast has been the one positive constant in my first two months after the move.The content is top notch and I appreciate the time you spent on making sure that every era of Rome was covered, not just the “highlights”. If you are looking for a quality podcast on Roman History, download all 176 episodes ASAP 😇

Good but....

Mike is excellent but he relies on an outdated understanding of Rome. New evidence and updated historical interpretations have revised our understanding of the great western empire. Mary Baird would like to have a word with you, Mike.
