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.
