Ego et Martinus in hypogaio machinam spectamus vestimenta lavantem.

Tres amici de condicionibus vivendi nunc sequendis loquuntur, necnon de seriebus televisificis quas his diebus spectant

In the first episode of Timeline Tapes, we’re presenting Tony Robinson’s Romans: Caesar Pt 1 as he takes us through the first part of the life of Julius Caesar. He is joined by historians and Rome academics Ray Laurence and Andrew Wallace Hadrill who are able to provide more insight into one of the most powerful men in history.

In this episode, Tony continues the story of Julius Caesar as he completes his conquest of Gaul and heads back to civil war in Rome, to Alexandria and the arms of Cleopatra, and eventually to his doom at the hands of his people. To tell the story of the fall of Caesar, Tony is joined by historians Chris Pelling and Andrew Wallace Hadrill.

Caligula plans his invasion of Britain. It would have been the first time any Roman solider had been there since Julius Caesar. What motivated his plans? Was he even serious? It’s often portrayed as a stupid stunt. But we discover there may be more to it. How did it fit into his German campaign and the conspiracies against him? And how does it factor into Claudius’ later invasion?

In ancient Rome, Fulvia was a mighty force of nature. She’s also one of the scariest and least appreciated badasses that Rome is ever going to see. She marries three times, each time becoming her husband’s champion, building him (and herself) up to grasp a kind of power that few women ever found. Fulvia IS the flame emoji. Grab some good walking sandals, your sharpest hairpins, and a flint, because we’re about to light this place up. Let’s go traveling.

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.
