Here are a couple of history podcasts that are great resources for readers and lovers of history-specifically Roman history.
The first is "The History of Rome" by Mike Duncan.
This is a narrative history of Rome dating from the founding Rome in 753 BC to the fall of the western Roman Empire in 476 AD. Duncan does a fine job, and will be expanding the franchise to a book and tours of the ancient sites. What's helpful for history book lovers is that he usually begins every episode with a recommendation of a history book.
That covers the western Empire, but did you know there was a whole nother part of the Roman Empire-the Eastern Empire, known as Byzantium? Byzantium lasted nearly a thousand years beyond the fall of the West, until conquered by the Turks. Professor Lars Brownsworth covers Byzantium in the podcast, "Twelve Byzantine Rulers" PODCAST
and also in a book, "Lost to the West" AMAZON
Didn't read the book, but listened to the podcast.
