The Tale of Rome is a podcast that follows the lives of a Roman family, for some 1000 years. Generation after generation. And as we go through the Roman monarchy, the republic, and the empire, we’ll see how the destinies of the members of this family change.
Some will be rich.
Others will be poor.
Some will be powerful.
Others will fall into slavery.
Some will become Christians.
Others will persecute them.
At the same time, we’ll get to know kings and tyrants, consuls and military tribunes, emperors and usurpers, gladiators and philosophers, explorers and martyrs, priests and assassins, vestal virgins and prostitutes.
And at the same time, this book is coming to light.
The tale of the lives of the members of our family saga.
I am dedicating this podcast (and the upcoming book) to my two elves, Fiona and Arwen. Fiona is working on the Chinese version of this same podcast, and our daughter is reading the INTROS and the OUTROS of that same podcast.
I also want to thank my mom (may she rest in peace), my brother Danny – in good old Europe, and my first son (now a programmer in his own right), way down in Argentina.
And many, many thanks to my friends all over Argentina, Germany, the US, Croatia, and all over China.
