    I was a big fan of the history of Rome, and I love how this podcast builds on that. It’s a great podcast, thanks!!!!

  2. One of the best episodes yet (even though all the episodes are great). Keep up the good work!

    Great episode as always. I could imagine The History of Byzantium as a TV series. There is so much great material to draw from.

    Listening to this amazing podcast for several months and I’ve to say it’s really great. Appreciating a lot the info on religions and Armenians.

    Great episode! You paint a vivid picture of Justinian II’s quest of vengeance and return to power!
