    This should be a treat.

    Congrats on reaching #100!

    The History of Rome is a good year by year narrative, but I wonder if someday Duncan or Pierson or someone else should go back and do all of the end of the century context and Q&A style additions to the tHoR podcast. I feel as though I get a much deeper understanding and more durable memory of events and personages with tHoB than I got from tHoR because of them.

    Not everything is everyone’s cup of tea, per instance Pierson said engineering questions were beyond his purview, but I wonder whether by collaborations many of these gaps could be better filled while still sort of allowing for a cohesive whole.

    Anyways, keep up the great work!

      I also liked THOR as a fun “drivetime”-style podcast. The good narrative flow and the tasteful humour were great assets. But I’ve outgrown the format, and Revolutions have left me so cold that I have actually abandoned it. THOB is by far the best historical podcast around at present, because of its nice balance of thematic and narrative approaches. I am not saying this in a competitive “my favourite podcast is better than yours!” manner, just as a description of how I have evolved as a listener. Robin has developed an especially effective style, combining narrative flow, with a “step back and look at the big picture” end-of-century episodes, and interesting interviews (well, mostly – I wasn’t too keen on the Zombies personally) . Perhaps other podcasters should take note.

  3. Fantastic interview! The THOR music was a nice touch. Congratulations on making it this far, Robin. Here’s to the future!

    Congratulations on your 100th episode and thank you for making all this available.
    It’s been a wonderful experience so far.

    Congratulations on reaching this many episodes! Having Mike Duncan on as a guest was a nice gesture; ‘top class’, as my Italian colleague would say.

  6. Congrats! The show has been great and I expect it to keep me entertained on my adventures for a long time to come.

    Nice. I got started on history podcasts with the History of Rome, as I imagine a lot of us did. Great interview.

    Would love to see a dual portrait of Robin and Mike done in the style of a front-facing Byzantine coin.
