    I have just started listening to these podcasts (Egypt at the moment!). I study ancient Greece, and this provides a much wider context. Thoughtful and nuanced discussion.
    So nice to be stimulated when walking to work. Thank you!

      I do appreciate you taking the time to comment, Joshua. It makes my day whenever I hear that people enjoy the product of my time and effort in studying the past! I’ll keep working to get out new episodes so that the well doesn’t run dry too soon for you 🙂

      What’s the focus of your study of ancient Greece? Every era I’ve worked my way through has been intriguing in different ways and made me want to just stay there and learn as much as I can. Ancient Greece is no different in that respect!

        Im afraid Im still narrowing it down! My masters focussed on the 3rd c BCE hellenistic cultural exchange; and I just finished writing some chapters of a text book on the Greco-Persian Wars, but the study on the maritime aspects has been really broad and political, so its great to get some details on shipwrighting and ship use.
        I noticed you were a bit apologetic when getting into the details of how ships were built and their specs (Mycenian pentacounters) – dont be! Its fascinating and really helpful.

          Good stuff there w/the Greco-Persian Wars! I’m working my way through them right now so our next few episodes might sound a bit familiar to you. Do correct any errors I let slip through if you catch them! lol Thanks for that closing remark too, it’s good to hear that the details are helpful 🙂 They are what got me interested in maritime history to begin with and I’m finding that more and more listeners seem to appreciate the detail, so I’ll keep it coming.

    Looks like the episodes are slowing down. Is everything OK with you?
