Dissecting Worlds Series 6, Episode 3: Romans!

I have been listening to the boys at Dissecting Worlds discuss Roman alternate histories with their guest host James from MOMBcast. Inspired by the History of Rome podcast, the guys begin by discussing Hannibal’s Children (one of my favorites from the era, though I doubt we will see a conclusion to the series anytime soon) and marching across all the popular/possible PODs of the Roman Empire.

Best quote: Stabbing your brother is wrong, okay?

I realized while listening to this episode that besides The Economics of a Roman Suez Canal, I have been remiss about covering this popular era for alternate historians.  I will try to rectify this and review some books involving the Romans very soon.

Enough reading, go listen!
