The Tale of Rome
This podcast is published on a weekly basis, and episodes are around fifteen minutes in length.
Episode by episode, the podcast will travel in time, starting from a man called Aeneas who left Troy and settled in Italy. It will continue its trip to the birth of Romulus and Remus, and how they founded Rome. Later you will hear about the things the Kings of Rome did (and didn’t do) to stay in power, and how they ultimately lost that power, giving way to the Republic of Rome.
Then, we will sail through the lands of the Mediterranean Sea as Rome grows. Battle after battle, we will learn of treachery, murders, bribes, love triangles, and more, as we approach the time when the Republic is ripe to fall. The Empire of Rome will be at our doorsteps, with all the glory and vanity of good and bad emperors.
We will travel through the Golden Age of Rome, with the well known Five Good Emperors, and then we will watch Rome slide, slowly and inexorably, to its demise. By the time we have reached the fifth century, there will be no man and no god (true or false) who will save Rome.
Buckle up, it is a bumpy ride!
