    Very interesting to listen to. Hoping for a political change soon in Turkey that will enable me to go there with a clean conscience myself eventually. πŸ™‚

    Robin thank you for your superb podcast , a highlight of the week when it arrives . I have been fascinated by Byzantine history ever since I encountered it first in Runcimans History of the Crusades – how could I have got to 16 , done history for 10 years and been told nothing about this 1000 year empire ? I was in Ravenna last year and I found that an amazing experience, having listened to your latest podcast podcast am determiner , even at the rage of 66 to go myself . I loved Mike Duncan’s History of Rome and your work is just as good .

      I suggest that Mr. Pierson is a better history podcaster than Mr. Duncan, who sometimes subjected historical personages to contemporary biases.
