Mike Duncan on America and Rome: The Storm Before the Storm

Populism, corruption, citizenship, and immigration. Rome struggled with these issues in its Republic phase. Bruce is joined by Mike Duncan, host of The History of Rome Podcast, to talk about the pre-fall of the Roman Republic, period of 146 to 78 BC and the cast of characters that struggled for power at the time. Mike has come out with a recent book called “The Storm Before the Storm,” which delves into this topic.

We also discuss Roman sources, Jefferson’s bookshelf, what it’s like to go from recording a podcast to writing a book.
