The History of Rome
For the past several weeks I have been listening to podcast called "The History of Rome."
So far I have listened to more than 60 of 200 twenty-minute episodes. The podcast takes the listener from the Fall of Troy to the Fall of the Empire. The next episode I listen to will be Claudius as emperor.
The narrator has a voice made for history, interesting but not given to great excitement. I listen every chance I get. And I am sure I will listen to his new one "Revolutions" when I have gone all the way through The history of Rome.
As many of you know, I am nearing the end of my Army career and am officially working part time at my job beginning this coming week. I have two teenage boys and triathlon training to fill my time, but listening to Rome made me think I could do a podcast on the history of tanks.
I love tanks. And a big advantage I have over many who could do a podcast on tanks is that I spent seven years as a tank commander.
Those of you who like military history, please give "The History of Rome" a listen. And let me know if you would like to listen to a history of tanks. If you have trouble with commenting on the blog--it is a hassle--email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just send a message on facebook.
