    Incredibly interesting to listen to. I would also like to compliment you on your progress as an interviewer. There’s a lot of great podcasts out there that occasionally have interview that are..not so great, and while you were never *bad* per se you’re actually becoming quite good. Giving the interviewee the right amount of time, asking thoughtful and well-timed questions (which is all more difficult than it might seem). I can’t wait for the next century!

    Interesting that Suetonius’ The Twelve Caesars was not cited as an inspiration for The Chronographia.

    I had listened to Mr. Adamson’s podcast for quite a few episodes and then quit. This interview reminded me of why I did both of those things.
