When in Rome
Episode XIX – Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus
If you had to name a god that the Romans worshipped above all others it would have to be Jupiter, and the temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus on the Capitoline Hill was the most important temple in the empire. While the building is long since destroyed we have a good idea of what it looked like, thanks to the attention of Roman writers.

The Maritime History Podcast
028 – Unlocking the Pontus Euxinus
In today’s installment, we’ll tell a tale of two cities in one sense. The age of colonization in Greece had an early leader in the island of Euboea, but as the Euboeans were stretched thin, Corinth and Miletus rose to become the leaders of Greek colonization. We’ll look at the wealth that Corinth controlled thanks partially to her location, but also to the diolkos and other maritime innovations that she instituted. Our second city of focus is Miletus, the ‘jewel of Ionia’. She was at the forefront of the Greek push into the Euxine Sea, or, the Black Sea. So after laying out the geography of the ‘Pontus Euxinus’ and her approaches, we’ll look at the colonies, resources, and importance of the Greek effort to unlock the Black Sea. We also consider the aeinautae, a group of magistrates who ruled Miletus by sailing out to sea and weighing anchor until they’d made whatever decision was at hand. An interesting method of governing, to be sure.

Myths and Legends
59-Greek Myths: The Violence of Our Ancestors
Many connected stories from Greek mythology. We’ll start with story of Hades and Persephone, and learn why she’s always hanging around the underworld (hint: it’s not because she wants to). Then, I’ll tell the story of the curse of the house of Atreus, starting with Tantalus and his questionable food choices. It’s a long, dark episode, so get ready. The creature is the Nakki, from Finland, who just wants to drown you and look good while doing it. Is that too much to ask?

Roman Emperors: Totalus Rankium
Murder! Death! Intrigue! ok, Numerian’s rule was no more interesting than you last drive across the country, but with added eye pain, but his death is a murder mystery that would make Columbo stop and ask just one more thing. So, who killed him? The evil Aper, or the diabolical Diocles?
The end of the Crisis is here! Does Carinus usher in a new golden age? Or is he the last of the dregs that have to be hosed down the drain pipe before Rome can get on its feet again? You can probably guess by the length of the episode! But who knows? Maybe he has that certain Je Na Caesar?
A fresh take on ancient myth
Episode 19: Pelops
Pelops who? Meet this lesser-known Greek hero-king who lends his name to the Peloponnese and is connected with the founding of the Olympic games. Was he really chopped up by his father and served to the gods or is something else going on?
