The period that will never end continues. Only 200 more years before we get to actual history. Meanwhile, here are military tribunes, replacements for consuls that definitely were real and certainly weren’t Livy making things up.

And now we come to the tale of Appius Claudius, and how he was the Platonic Form of asshole.

Note: We’re incorrect near the end of the episode when we say that the laws passed at this time allowed intermarriage between Plebeians and Patricians. That actually happens late. Nostra Culpae.

And now we cover a decade’s worth of Livy probably making a lot of stuff up. We first run into agrarian laws, the bogeymen of Roman politics that became major points of contention during the late republic. And we fight wars, a lot of wars, against pretty much the same three people.

More of the Early Republic era, where most stories are made up parables about how it’s good to support the state and bad to do anything else, such as in the story of Coriolanus, who turned against Rome but then turned back when his mom told him to.

Having expelled the monarchy, the fledgeling Roman Republic takes its first steps, which mostly include going to war with everyone and people trying really hard to act like kings without being kings.

A double dose of podcasts this time. We continue our Roman History series with the conclusion of the Monarchy period, from Numa Pompilius down to Tarquinius Superbus and the founding of the Republic.

A new podcast series, separate from our normal series, wherein we intend to trace the whole history of ancient Rome, from the founding until probably whenever we stop. This episode, Sagramore and Emily (or Aemilia, if you’re into the Latin business) start right from the beginning, with the founding of the city and the reign of it’s first king, Romulus. Oh yeah, we’re about to get all historical and highbrow.

Episode 64 is here! Along with Episode 66, these are our “Avatar: the Last Airbender” podcasts, wherein our regular hosts, along with Emily and Tina, discuss the hit Nickelodeon show Avatar and it’s follow up, The Legend of Korra. Episode 64 was meant to focus on Avatar, but instead became a show about shipping and analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of Korra. Episode 66, on the other hand, looks at two episodes in the particular in season 3 to reveal how complex and emotionally powerful the show could be.

Enjoy!

We return, after another one of our long, unexplained hiatuses, that is pretty much all my fault. But anyway, this week we are again joined by our newly-promoted recurring host Cookie, aka Emily, and in true old fashioned Impetuous Windmills style, we ramble our way through the topic of nostalgia, analyzing why it attaches to some things over others, and whether stuff back then really was better than it is now. (Hint, it’s not really.) Enjoy!
