In case you can't tell from the title, our exciting third episode has something to do with Prometheus' gift to humanity! But that's not all, how about some scientific reasons about skin pigmentation, evidence of another human species on this Earth, and why I choose to use BC/AD. Check it out!

Podcast cover

Carthage always seems to take a backseat in history to another big player in the Mediterranean. It could be because it's really tough to find solid writing on them...but hey, when has fact and evidence ever stopped this podcast! So we stretch things a bit and talk about events that may or may not have ever existed...whatever! Onwards to Carthage, with a very special guest introduction by Dominic Perry of the Egyptian History Podcast!

So many people throughout history get to have "The Great" as a moniker, but do they deserve it? Heck no! But Cyrus, here is the exception!
