I, Podius ain’t your daddy’s I, Claudius-based podcast! On Episode 5 hosts John Hodgman and Elliott Kalan recap “Some Justice” and present the backdoor pilot to the Piso and Plancina show!
“As long as there has been warfare, there have been warriors willing to offer their services to the highest bidder. In this issue, we look at ancient mercenaries across the Mediterranean.” It’s a lively discussion with a full ancient warfare magazine team.
In our last episode we talked about the journey Dionysus took to become a god. We followed his travels across the Mediterranean as he went on an epic quest to spread the cultivation of wine. In this episode, we’ll focus on what happened after Dionysus won his place as a god on Mount Olympus–how people worshiped him on earth, and what made him so dangerous to the Roman status quo.
In this episode, we discuss the year 413 BC of the Peloponnesian War, including the rise of Archelaus to the Macedonian throne, the Athenian attack on the Laconian coastline which technically broke the peace treaty, the defeats by the Athenian army and navy at Syracuse, and the retreat and ultimate surrender of the Athenians, which brought the Sicilian Expedition to an end.

If it thunders today, it portends a very dry and destructive summer.
