Scenario related podcasts

Wed Sep 19, 2012 8:20 am

I mentioned Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast before, but I thought I'd share with you guys the episodes of his show pertaining to each of the scenarios included with the game. They're in bite sized, 20-30 minute files, perfect for slapping on your Ipod while at work or study hall. These episodes should be really good primers for anyone who wants to know more details about the events covered in the game's included scenarios.

Enjoy!

Marius vs Sulla

The Great Mithridatic War

The Spartacus Revolt

The Roman Civil War

Year of the Four Emperors

EDIT - Put in some wiki links for anyone who'd rather read about the events than listen to the podcasts.

@ Boomer

Thanks for the links. I am now working my way through the entire podcast (some 177 episodes) at a rate of a couple per day. Very well done and immensely interesting.

Hope you enjoy them, I know I did. Mike really put an effort into them. I believe it took him about 4 years altogether to research, write, and record them all.
