Hello, friends. Sadly, I have to let you guys know that my podcast The Tale of Rome will stop broadcasting for the time being. I might be back in a few weeks, and yes, Episode 40 (Livy and Virgil) will be published in the next few days. But after that I will discontinue the podcast for a bit.
I was already busy with three podcasts and one Patreon site, so something had to give. For a while I thought I would be able to keep it up, but personal issues gave me the coup de grace.
The Spanish and Chinese versions continue unaffected, as well as the Patreon site.
Farewell, and may God Bless You All!

Alexander Laurin interviews me
I was recently interviewed by Alexander Laurin, from Podcaster’s Coach as we were all excited to be working on the International Podcast Day show. Both Alexander and I were speakers at the #InternationalPodcastDay show, which was last September 30th (and every year on September 30th – hint, hint, mark your calendars!) and turned out to be an awesome festival with more than 13 countries and 50 speakers involved.
So, here is the interview Alexander Laurin so cordially invited me to, take a listen.
I want to thank Alexander Laurin, and let you all guys know that I am looking forward to more of this. More interviews, more festival, more fun, and more podcasts!
Thank you all!
The Tale of Rome is on Stitcher!
Thank you, @Stitcher, right in time for the #InternationalPodcastDay !
Episodes 8 and 9 – in 48 hours
I’d like to announce a double score for this podcast. Come Sunday, you’ll have two new episodes, instead of one, to listen to:
Episode 8 – Tarquin the Elder, and Episode 9 – Killed by his own Daughter. Here are the covers:
That’s right, I’m working very hard to get the two podcasts on the same page, even though the Spanish language podcast, EL CUENTO DE ROMA is still 19 episodes ahead.
See you all, this Sunday evening!
Also, on EL CUENTO DE ROMA, we’ll have Episodio 26 – El Estado de la Unión – 390 AC., which means that we have half a year’s worth in the bag, there. I mean, 52 weeks is one year, right? So the, 26 is half a year…
The World of Rome around 400 BC
The superpowers of the time: Greece, Persia, and – on a minor scale, Carthage.
