Ask Me Anything

Hello everyone,

I am doing an AMA. That’s an Ask Me Anything for a website called WhatPods. I will be answering questions on the 21st March at 4.30pm US eastern standard time. But if you can’t be there live you can just submit your question now. Yes any questions posted in the next 6 days will join a list that I will begin tackling on the day.

So Ask Me Anything. It can be about the podcast, about the Kickstarter, about Byzantine history, Roman history, about the England cricket team, about Breaking Bad, about my favourite food, whatever you like. You just need to register on Whatpods and then ask away.

Speak to you soon.
