The History of Rome

While not technically about board games, I find that most gamers also tend to be history buffs (especially wargamers). I came across this excellent podcast last week and thought I'd share it. It's called The History of Rome (old location - new location is here) by Mike Duncan.

The History of Rome is a weekly podcast, available for free both on Mike's blog and on iTunes. As of this writing, there are 154 episodes (actually, a little more because some are split into parts "a" and "b"). He follows the entire history of Rome chronologically. I'm currently on Episode 19. It's a very down-to-earth narrative and isn't dull or  boring by any means. Mike injects just the right amount of humor into his podcast. So for anyone interested in history or Rome, I strongly recommend checking out this podcast!
