Picking up from where we left off last time, we use Sulla as a jumping off point for a rather long tangent about the transition from the Roman Republic to the Principate, the causes and effects, the flaws in the old system, and the possible necessity of a change in imperial management. All of our opinions, of course, are well-researched, based on perfect understanding of the history and the socio-political and economic factors involved, and in no way are biased or influenced by how awesome the people were.

Deviating from our more recent podcasts that focus on modern media, today we take a step back in time to examine the Third Servile War, the war in which Spartacus the slave fought the armies of Rome as he trekked up and down Italy for over three years. How did this happen? Who was Spartacus? How close do the modern versions of the story adhere to the history? We answer maybe one and a half of those questions. But we learn something nonetheless.

Podcast Edit: in 71 BCE Pompey totally got to celebrate a triumph for defeating Sertorius. Don’t listen to Sagramore.

With the end of the year come lists of top everything of the year, and we are no exception. We cover our top 10 movies of the year, five apiece, and throw in some honorable mentions and bottom few of the year as well. This year, to our own surprise, there wasn’t a lot of overlap between our lists, so enjoy some genuine variety this time around.

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!

This episode, we welcome back fan favorite and new regular contributor, Cookie, aka Emily, and also welcome a new guest, Tina. Together we tackle the complex, unusual, moving, and sometimes silly, anime that is Revolutionary Girl Utena. Having tackled the show, we now turn to the theatrical film, Adolescence of Utena, which is….. well, no one really knows. Is it a continuation of the series? A new retelling of the story? Listen on as we sort of don’t really figure it out.

This episode, we welcome back fan favorite and new regular contributor, Cookie, aka Emily, and also welcome a new guest, Tina. Together we tackle the complex, unusual, moving, and sometimes silly, anime that is Revolutionary Girl Utena. There was so much to talk about, we had to split the show into two parts, so this part the Akio Car Arc and End of the World Arc. Episode 59, later forthcoming, will deal with the movie, Adolescence of Utena. I told you it was complex. Enjoy.

Together we tackle the complex, unusual, moving, and sometimes silly, anime that is Revolutionary Girl Utena. There was so much to talk about, we had to split the show into two parts, so this part covers the Student Council Arc and most of the Black Rose Arc, and Episode 58 will wrap up the Black Roses and cover the Akio Car Arc and End of the World Arc. Episode 59, later forthcoming, will deal with the movie, Adolescence of Utena. I told you it was complex. Enjoy.
