I love those. And he clearly does a shitload of work to get multiple sources and is very careful to point out hes not a historian, he just has an interest and likes reading this stuff so hes eager to give credit to the right person.

There's a Will Durrant book in today's Daily Kindle deals for 99p. Thought I'd give it a go as he's one of Dan's go to sources.

After listening to one of the addendum podcasts, I have been listening to the History of Rome by Mike Duncan.

There are a LOT of episodes (it’s the entire history of Rome after all) but they are all quite short, 10-25 minutes. It took a while to get used to after Dan Carlin, but I’m loving it now, it’s full of information and stories that I had never heard.

I’m up to Hadrian now, I’ve got a feeling he might go all Trump and start building walls...
