I'm always really excited to see that a new episode is out! Curtis does such a wonderful job of weaving a narrative line through these fascinating and wonderful interviews. I have recommended this podcast to several of my students and they have all had glowing praise after they listened (the Invention of the West episode in particular was a big hit with a student who had just returned from Turkey and was thinking through a lot of those same issues). The production value is high and the quality of ideas -- from the host and guests -- is really top notch. So glad this exists!!

The Ancients were smart after all!
