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!!!!
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!
