Rank #1: 001- In the Beginning.
Welcome to The History of Rome, a weekly series tracing the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. Today we will hear the mythical origin story of Rome and compare it with modern historical and archaeological evidence. How much truth is wrapped up in the legend? We end this week with the death of Remus and the founding of Rome.

Last time we discussed the events that lead to the birth of Rome,covering the arrival of Aeneas in Italy and the story of the twinsRomulus and Remus. Today we will cover the remainder of Romulus's life,his questionable morality and ultimate disappearance from the world ofmen.
For history lovers who listen to podcasts, History Unplugged is the most comprehensive show of its kind. It's the only show that dedicates episodes to both interviewing experts and answering questions from its audience. First, it features a call-in show where you can ask our resident historian (Scott Rank, PhD) absolutely anything (What was it like to be a Turkish sultan with four wives and twelve concubines? If you were sent back in time, how would you kill Hitler?). Second, it features long-form interviews with best-selling authors who have written about everything. Topics include gruff World War II generals who flew with airmen on bombing raids, a war horse who gained the rank of sergeant, and presidents who gave their best speeches while drunk.
Rank #1: Why Your Favorite Presidents (Lincoln, Washington) Actually Screwed Up America—Brion McClanahan.
Quick – name your favorite president. You probably said Washington or Lincoln, right? C'mon. You can be more original than that. Well, Brion McClanahan is original. He gladly tells people that the greatest president in American history was John Tyler. Confused looks then follow, usually with a question of "Who was that again?" On the other hand, we all have presidents whom we think were terrible. You can point to a Jimmy Carter, a Herbert Hoover, a Warren G. Harding, or (if you're an insufferable history nerd like me) Millard Fillmore. But Abraham Lincoln? Brion McClanahan—again, being original here—makes the argument that Lincoln, far from being America's savior, may have done her irreparable harm. But he is not making this argument for the sake of being a contrarian. Rather it's a position grounded in thorough research an consideration of what the real responsibility of a president is. After all, he wrote a book called 9 Presidents Who Screwed Up America: And Four Who Tried to Save Her. I can almost guarantee that you won't be able to guess who he names as the good and bad presidents. In this episode we discuss who they were, why they were so good or bad, and whether Brion has seen Hamilton on Broadway (he has a book on him coming out later this year). McClanahan argues that... Lincoln violated the Constitution because as commander in chief he believed he had to “subdue the enemy,” no matter the collateral damage. His violations created a blueprint for more executive abuse in the future. By the time Obama left office earlier this year, Americans suffered under twenty-eight consecutive years of unconstitutional executive usurpation of power. Over a two-year period, the Obama administration delayed the implementation of the Affordable Care Act twenty-eight times, ostensibly to give employers time to comply with the law. This was a blatantly unconstitutional power grab by the executive office. History has shown that presidents tend to abuse their power in their second term, and that the best presidents tend to serve less than eight years in office. MORE ABOUT BRION Brion McClanahan is the author or co-author of four books, The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers, (Regnery, 2009), The Founding Fathers Guide to the Constitution (Regnery History, 2012), Forgotten Conservatives in American History (Pelican, 2012), and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes, (Regnery, 2012). He has written for TheDailyCaller.com, LewRockwell.com, TheTenthAmendmentCenter.com, Townhall.com, and HumanEvents.com. McClanahan is a faculty member at Tom Woods’ Liberty Classroom, has appeared on dozens of radio talk shows, and has spoken across the Southeast on the Founding Fathers and the founding principles of the United States.

The fall of the Roman Empire has been studied for years, but genetics, climate science, forensic science, network models, and globalization studies have reshaped our understanding of one of the most important events in human history.

Rank #2: 4: The Gothic Sack of Rome.
In 395, the barbarian Goths rebelled against the Romans and fought a campaign that culminated in the sack of Rome in 410. But were the Goths really barbarous foreigners, or are they better understood as a Roman army seeking a position within the Empire?

Rank #1: THE LOST COLONY: AMERICAS GREATEST UNSOLVED MYSTERY (PT 1): THE DARE STONES.
"The Lost Colony Part 1: The Dare Stones": In 1587, 115 men, women, and children were delivered to Roanoke Island on the Carolina coast with the hopes of beginning a new English colony in the New World. Storms and war with Spain prevented any supply ships from reaching them for three years, and when the ships arrived, they found the fort deserted, and the word "Croatoan" carved onto the fort's palisade walls. The 115 settlers were gone, leaving no trace, until 1937, when a traveler named Hammond found a large stone at the side of a North Carolina road containing what appeared to be a desperate chiseled message from Eleanor Dare. More stones were found, each containing a clue to the whereabouts of the surviving colonists. They came to be called The Dare Stones. The first stone contained this carved inscription, written in the Elizabethan dialect: https://nativeheritageproject.com/2013/12/08/the-dare-stones-1-through-48/Enjoy 1001 Stories for The Road at Overcast here:https://overcast.fm/itunes1227478901/1001-stories-for-the-roadCatch all our archives at our home site: www.1001storiespodcast.com Music: Mattia Cupelli : The Call (copyright and royalty free) (links listed) - Like my Facebook page!: https://www.facebook.com/MattiaCupell... - iTunes Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/ma... #thelostcolony #lostcolony #darestones #mystery #sirwalterraleigh #johnwhite

Everywhere around us are echoes of the past. Those echoes define the boundaries of states and countries, how we pray and how we fight. They determine what money we spend and how we earn it at work, what language we speak and how we raise our children. From Wondery, host Patrick Wyman, PhD (“Fall Of Rome”) helps us understand our world and how it got to be the way it is.

A podcast about myths we think are history and history that might be hidden in myths! Awesome stories that really (maybe) happened!
Rank #1: Episode #97- Who Built the Pyramids? (Part I).
The Egyptian pyramids are easily the most mythologized pieces of architecture on the planet. They have inspired historical myths and misconceptions essentially as long as "history" has been a literary genre. The so-called "father of history" Herodotus was one of the first writers to try and explain the construction of the Pyramids. But should we really trust a guy who has been called the "father of lies". Tune in and find out how my weird dating system, ancient machines, and Egyptian bathroom habits all play a role in the story.

Rank #2: Episode #58 - How Do You Explain the First Crusade? (Part I).
There are few medieval events that are still as politically loaded as the Crusades. Even though the First Crusade was launched well over 900 years ago people are still debating it's merits. The debate becomes even more complicated when you consider all of the mythology, falsehoods, and popular misconceptions that surround this event. How should we make sense of this deeply complex and sometimes downright unbelievable story. Tune and find out how people being hung from their bits, the Sultan of Rome, and the end of the world all play a role in the story.
