I’ve just stumbled onto Dan Carlin’s podcast Hardcore History and have enjoyed his episode on The Macedonian Soap Opera, i.e., the Diadochi. I don’t know if it’s hardcore (I can’t hear that word without thinking of Minor Threat or Bad Brains) but it’s entertaining and well-produced.
And it makes cleaning a lot easier to deal with. Next go around I’ll start in on
Punic Nightmares Pt. I, Pt. II, & Pt. III.
I’m really looking forward to his discussion with Victor Davis Hanson. And episode 12, Steppe Stories, sounds great if the introduction is anything to go by:
Blood-sucking Scythian warriors, tattooed ice mummies, Amazons killing so they can mate, pot smoking head-hunters, scalp-taking, koumiss-drinking Mongols, Turks, Huns, and Aliens. What’s not to like?
