    Glad you enjoyed it! I haven't listened to the Punic War one yet...heard good things about it. That and Ghosts of Ostfront (WWII Eastern Front) are on my list.

    I've just always been fascinated by Carthage and the Punic Wars. Partly because so many of the primary sources for Cathaginian history were destroyed when the Romans (spoiler alert!) destroyed the city and wiped out the population, partly because the personalities involved were so dramatic and historic (Hannibal invented the pincer movement, for chrissakes), partly because I have a deep admiration for the perfection for the harbor of Carthage -- which is probably my favorite architectural feature of antiquity -- but also because it's probably the best example from the ancient world of the USA vs. Russia WWIII scenario that never came to pass: the world's two biggest powers in a fight to the death.

    At the beginning of the First Punic War the leading power in the Mediterranean was not Rome, but Carthage. That made them arguably the leading power in the world at that time. By the end of the Second Punic War -- which itself lasted 20 years -- Rome had taken control and set the stage for them to become the Roman Empire. And then after the Third Punic War there was no Carthage. Rome completely erased them from existence. No Carthaginian plays remain. Nothing about their religion. Nothing about their food or their customs or even the details of their language. Nothing about their version of what happened in the wars. Nada.

    Anyway I knew a lot of the background and details here and there but the podcasts filled in the gaps for me. Also I don't know about you but Carlin sounds a hell of a lot like Colin Cowherd to me. Like disturbingly like him.


    Why, I can smile, and murder while I smile,
    And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
    And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
    And frame my face to all occasions.
    I can add colours to the chameleon,
    Change shapes with Proteus for advantages,
    And set the murderous Machiavel to school.
    Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?

    I just downloaded the first 2 Khan podcasts off of iTunes. I'll see if I like it and then download the rest of the Khans if I do.
