"britannia" Discussed on A.D. History Podcast

"The entire senate had to attend as well and they couldn't get out of it and i'm curious because naturally if you're out on campaign and you fight well and you lead well and you all these skills together. In a way that would actually further rome's strategic interests. How is that so different in this case in european kristen from the bombing affection of a alessia crowd. Well he clearly wanted the love of the people more than the love of the soldiers and that's comforting. I was wondering about is because he's obviously a show off and he seems to love a crowd and that the end is more about the crowd than necessarily using those skills and a well far more productive way as emperor. So all this really just rankles with the senate the senate obviously the upper crust of society you know you have your your senatorial class as it were and they have a very specific way that they think they should be going about business but the question. I'm gonna pose here. Is what did the roman people make of all of this so there are two things that need to be kind of rehashed here so we go a little bit back in and we talk about the death apprentice and you know the large contingent of javelins that were set all the way from britannia that led to arenas death and the roman public were not believe it says they saw what was going on and when it happened and there began to generate a general feeling that okay we we really need the emperor the emperor now and when it came to these demonstrations and shows on at the coliseum while the senate was extremely dismayed and we know why in terms of what the roman people felt ms interesting..

What Biden's America could look like

"In much of the world and nowhere more. So than among america's allies joe biden's victory has come as a great relief under his presidency. There will be no more bullying and threats to leave. Nato america will stop treating the european union as a photo on trade or its own forces stationed in south korea as a protection racket in place of donald. Trump's wrecking bowl. Mr biden will offer an outstretched hand working over simply on global crises. From kuroda to climate change under mr trump america's favorability ratings in many allied countries sank to new lows. Mr biden promises to make america a beacon again a champion of lofty values and the defender of human rights leading as he puts it in his acceptance speech not only by the example of our pa but by the power of our example allies are central to mr biden's vision he rightly sees them as a multiplier of american influence tuning a country with a quarter of global. Gdp into a force with more than double that he is also a multilateral by instinct on his first day in office he will rejoin the paris agreement on climate change which america formerly left on november the fourth unlike mr trump. He believes it is better to lead the world health organization than to leave it. He will reinvigorate arms control a priority being to ensure order new. Start the last remaining. Nuclear pact with russia is extended beyond february the fifth he would like to rejoin the nuclear deal with iran that mr trump dumped if he can persuade the iranians to go back into compliance inevitably. America's friends have a long list of things they hope it will do as it reimburses global leadership the demand stretch from places and organizations. Mr trump has abused such as the un and allies like germany. Two parts of the world. He has ignored such as much of africa. And it will not be smooth traveling not all countries in our style jake for a return to obama era politics when america lead from behind and blood. It's red lines. Several countries on nato's front line with russia like the way defenses. Have been beefed up under mr trump and asian allies like how mr trump has confronted. China talked a free and open indo pacific and worked on the cloud with australia india and japan. Mr biden needs to prove that he will not turn soft. His priorities will be to quell virus and improve the economy on both counts. He can count on little support and much pushback. If the senate is under republican control as is likely such troubles at home have probably also exacerbated. The country's reluctance to take on more foreign burdens. Who can be sure that world-weary jacksonians will come galloping. Back in twenty twenty four. Perhaps even with mr trump in the saddle so rather than pile demand upon needed demand. America's allies should go out of their way to show that they have learned to pull their weight. Nato partners for example should not relax defense spending just because mr trump is no longer bullying them. Germany should pay heed to french. Average to build european defense capacity. there is scope to do so without undermining nato europeans could lend a big hand to france in these suheil in asia. The quad could keep deepening naval and other cooperation. Japan and south korea should restrain their feuding taiwan or to make a more serious contribution to its own defense. I should also work with america to repair the international order. They can support efforts to resist chinese or russian rule. Bending many countries will want to join mr biden's efforts at concerted carbon cutting mr biden will face a world full of problems but he will also start with strengths. Thanks to mr trump. He has sanctions on adversaries including iran and venezuela that he can use as chips and among friends he can seek to convert relief at renewed american engagement into stronger. Burden-sharing is allies would be wise to answer that call with enthusiasm. Finally how princess diana shaped british politics netflix's flagship series. The crown has done a fine job of telling the story of postwar britain through the prism of the monarchy. The previous series nephew is in the mid nineteen seventies mired in the miners strike and the three day week new one which began streaming on november fifteenth. Introduces us to two women. Who were destined to change the country in profound ways margaret thatcher and lady diana spencer lady thatcher made it clear from the first but she was in the business of changing the nation. They design a spencer was a bird of a very different feather. Shy girl who had failed all her o levels twice and had no interest in politics she was brought onto the national stage for the soaker of producing mail as to the throne yet. The country is still living with her political legacy as surely as it is with lady. Thatcher's princess diana's genius was to mix two of the most profound forces of modern politics emotion and anti elitism into a powerful populist cocktail. She was one of the modern masters of the politics of emotion. Feeling the people's pain just as they felt hers. She repeatedly outmaneuvered prince. Charles during long war of the wales's because she was willing to bare her soul in public interview with martin bashir of the bbc in november. Nineteen ninety-five is now the focus of controversy as her brother earl. Spencer claims that it was obtained under false pretenses using forged documents. Whatever the reason for it. The interview was a masterclass in emotional manipulation at one pivotal moment. Princess diana acknowledged that she would never be queen but hope that she would be queen of people's hearts. The princess used her mastery of the politics of feeling to turn himself into a champion of the people against the powerful. The people's princess in tony blair's raise she patronized charities that helped marginalized folks such as hiv patients and kept company with pop stars and celebrities rather than with the usual royal wax. Books the most memorable music at her funeral was not an historic him. But a song by elton john adapted for herbert originally written about another icon. Turn victim marilyn monroe. Anti elitism was directed. Not at the monarchy's wells. She happily lived in kensington palace and received a seventeen million pound. That's twenty three million dollar divorce. Settlement plus four hundred thousand pounds a year but added stunted emotional state the traditional deal to which royal side allow them to behave as they liked in crowded kings have almost always had mistresses because they marry her reasons of dynasty not compatibility so long as they behaved with decorum in public princess. Diana regarded this humbug. She succeeded in reconciling the most. Jarring of opposites despite being a top tier aristocrat. Her family the spencers. Look down on the windsors this german carpetbaggers. She was universally known as die. Her death in a car crash won her a spectacular posthumous victory against the royal court. It produced the greatest burst public lack remission. Britain has ever seen and led to widespread demands that the royal should display more emotion. As if the damn cheek could replace the stiff upper lip as the definition of britishness. What would really do the monarchy. Good show that they had grasped the lesson of diana's popularity and editorial in the independent thundered would be for the queen and the prince of wales to breakdown cry and hug one another on the steps of the abbey this saturday. Cincinnati death emotional. Populism has threaded through politics. Tony blair presented himself as the people's prime minister. He championed cool. Britannia surrounded himself with popstars and urged his staff to call me. Tony the next conservative prime minister call me. Dave cameron a distant relation of princess. Diana's adopted this combination of compassion signaling. Hugging hoodies is instead of cracking down on juvenile delinquents and studied informality relaxing and kitchen suppers replacing previous. Tory premier stiffness. Both men were responsible to that emotional. Populism interfere with the affairs of state domestic and foreign policy choices continued to be conducted according to the dictates of reason evidence brexit tears. By contrast follow the diana's script they appeal to the heart rather than the had to win their arguments. They used feelings of patriotism and resentment rather than facts about trade flows. They denounced the elites for trying to straight the wisdom of the people in much the same way as diana files denounce the palace for ignoring the people's emotions lay turned on the nation's core institutions. Parliament the civil service the supreme court when they suspected attempts to frustrate their wishes they succeeded in defeating the establishment in much the same way as princess diana had by claiming to stand for emotion rather than reason and the people rather than the elite alexander. Boris federal johnson has reconciled the opposites. He embodies justice. She did a card carrying member of the metropolitan elite. He has managed to sell himself as a man of the people as she was die. So he is. Boris the first series of the crown shows a young queen. Elizabeth studying water badgett's english constitution under the guidance of henry. Martin the vice provost of eton who kept a pet raven in a cage and address the on crisis gentlemen budgets. Great work distinguishes between the dignified branch of the constitution. The monarchy and the efficient branch elected politicians implicit in that distinction is badges perception. That emotions pose a dangerous threat to the proper conduct of politics. The monarchy provides a controlled lead for them thus enabling responsible people to get on with the difficult task of running the country by using people's feelings as the fuel for her astonishing career princess. Diana broke that safety valve britain will be living with the consequences of the emotional populism that she helped to release for years to come.

The Mystery of Woodchester Mansion

"People have lived in the area of Gloucestershire share. Now known as would chester park since the Romans invaded Britannia but the site of the Winchester Mansion itself began as a hunting lodge in the middle of a heavily wooded deer park. The ducie family purchased the Land Law in Sixteen thirty one renovating it into a Georgian. House called Spring Park. The ducey's kept the house in a near constant state of renovation added several landscaping features to the sprawling four thousand Acre valley including a group of art official lakes in eighteen forty. The second earl of Ducie inherited the property from his recently deceased father. The Legend of what happened that fateful year would be the first indication that something wasn't quite right at the would chester estate. It's no wonder that rumors of full body apparitions, disembodied voices, and the strange smell of extinguish candles persist. Not when the initial occupancy of the mansion turned out to be so very, very strange. Henry was grateful that his father and past he would never say so loud but he could not be happier. He had long toiled in the shadows of Thomas Reynolds Morton look first earl of Ducie. While the reward of inherited title was a nice reward for his time. It wasn't enough Thomas expected a lot out of him henry heated the permanence near the Thomas War around his son the constant lack of approval had driven Henry to dark thoughts. It was unfair that someone who had so much could feel as though they were nothing. He'd contemplated killing his own father regularly. It wished for his father's death a thousand times. But wishes weren't enough. At night he trump of sneaking into his father's room and crushing his windpipe Thomas, Cole ties would stare back at him in defiance but Henry would only press harder. He would steal every ounce of paint from his father that he could. He would revel in at even. This was the retribution he deserved. But by the time, he finally summoned the courage to act on his feelings fate had intervened. His father was dead and Henry would be able to keep his soul free at sin. He should have been overjoyed, but there was a part of him. That was disappointed. Henry had wanted to watch the life leave is father's is. Instead, S. he stood in the church on that summer morning he saw the corpse of an older man that felt nothing like his father. This husk of a person wasn't even the slightest bit intimidating. He was justice Shell Serene still. No fire behind the size no disapproving sneer. To the best of his knowledge Thomas Reynolds, Morton had never looked serene is life. Death was as the saying goes the great equalizer Henry didn't WanNA. Feel equal to his father he wanted to feel better that him. His shock at being robbed of the chance to end his father's life was eventually swallowed by his own greed. He held the title and the purse strings that once belonged to Thomas. The legacy had been passed onto him and he could do whatever he wanted with that power. His first act of filial disobedience was going to be a party. He would holden enchanted forest themed masquerade at his father's last real estate acquisition but converted Hunting Lodge in Winchester Park. It was still under construction, but the ballroom was mostly finished and the incomplete designed would really add to the atmosphere. Henry woke with a sense of clear purpose on the day of the party even though he held the title for weeks, this would be his entrance into high society as an earl. The people would give him the respect they never gave his father. A. Played softly as Henry mingled with his guests, he welcomed as many people as he could bobbing out of conversations whenever he grew tired of the subject matter. Most of these guests were more his father's friends than his. He despised them, but he couldn't resist the chance to hold his new title and the imminent chaos heads. He outranked nearly all of them now. Though the event was a masquerade few visit guests had been particularly inventive. There was fun and trying to guess who everyone was. Something always gave them away the gate, the bone structure, the laugh. There were at least four uninspiring looking deer and far too many rakish second sons had decided to come as wolves. But there was one person Henry didn't know. A strange masked man was weaving his way through the crowd. He had never introduced himself and his body language was unfamiliar. Henry tried to get closer, but he struggled to even get a clear view of the masked man. The pushed through the of gentry ignoring their complaints. Finally. When the crowd parted they met. The mysterious man was standing still gazing out one of the large glazed windows to the forest behind. And redrew closer and put one gloved hand on the man's shelter. The did not turn around.

Travel to Brittany France

"Today, the amateur traveler talks about walled towns and standing stones, beaches, and folk festivals, pirates, and you boats as we go to Brittany in France. Welcome to the amateur traveler I'm your host Chris? Christensen. Let's talk about Britney. I'd like to welcome to the show Kristen Montgomery from growing global citizens dot com who come to talk to us about the region of France known as Brittany Kristin welcome to the show. Thanks Chris and I want to say the Duchy of Brittany, but that's really not the term anymore so. It's definitely part of France officially where we talking about. So Britney is located in north western France, and as you said, it used to be a duchy, but in the fifteen hundreds it was incorporated as part of France basically taken over a against their will, so there's still a very strong regional identity. There are some people that still identify as being brought tone before their French slump. And why should someone go to Britney? Britney is a place that is not usually on lots of travelers lists. Obviously, if you're going to head to France, you think of Peres you think of southern France provence or niece, but there are a lot of really great things to see in Britannia, Britney there are beautiful beaches first of all, and it's actually sand beaches, unlike the rocky beaches that you find down south. It's a great place for a multi generational trip. So if you're traveling with family, it would be an excellent place to visit because it's a little bit less touristy, less crowded. There are more things to do that are in small towns out in the country. And it has this Celtic identity like I said the the Britain identity that really is not found in any other place in France, and so you're going to be hearing things like bagpipes for music. You're going to be seeing traditional dancing, even some of the Breton, language. and. I found that people here were really very very friendly. which is something that I hate to say, but sometimes and other parts of France especially, you think of Paris. They don't really have the reputation of being very friendly, but people here really took the time to be able to chat. And if you're someone that likes history or is into myths and legend Brittany has a lot of that, too. Excellent. What Are you going to recommend for us? So I would recommend starting in Ren, ren is in the eastern part of Brittany. And you can fly in, or you can take the train. The TJ evade from Paris. It's about an hour and forty five minutes. There are international flights into rent from other places in Europe, but I don't think there are any from the US or from north. America directly. If you're looking for a place, that would have more connections. That would be a bigger city. You can also fly into note, which is farther south and not officially right now is no longer part of Brittany in the administrative region, but it was part of that she. And there is a quite a bit to see there, too. So I won't talk about that today, but that's another option if you want more connections. And, so for the itinerary like I said you're going to start in Rin and then most of the things to see our along the coast, so you're basically going to do a clockwise circle, and you can go all the way around following the coast and then get back to ren okay. Excellent we'll let's jump in a little more detail. What are we going to Iran before we head to the coast? Okay so. Is the cultural capital of Brittany to university town, and it's really easy to get around. I will mention that you're gonNA. WanNa rent a car to be able to do this. Because there are a lot of small towns that you're going to want to be able to go in and out of. But when you're in rent itself, you don't need a car. They actually have a great metro and it's the smallest city in France to have metro. And this one is driverless also so it goes both underground and above ground, and it was really clean and safe and efficient, so that was that was something that I didn't really expect, but it was a very pleasant surprise. So, Ren is known for its half timber houses, which is funny, because that really I think we're on the other end of France over and. Also as lorraine or something like that when I see the half timber houses, yes, exactly that part of France and then Germany to places where you usually think of those, but it's very much native to the architecture here and I believe it's done in a slightly different way, but I'm not positive about that, but the half timber houses are usually the first level is stone, and then on top of that they're usually three or four other levels that have these big pieces of wood, and then they're deaf clan of plaster or mud in between them. When they're all different colors, and so when you see them all together for example, plastic undone. It's a big square where you can see this architecture and Ren, and some of these are incredibly old. They're dating from the fifteenth to Seventeenth Century. All the way back in the Middle Ages incredibly old by American standards is an exactly. Yes, thank you. Yes. It's all relative actually in Renton. They're kind of pockets of these and the reason. There aren't more is because like many other places. There was a big fire in seventeen twenty, and so many of them were destroyed, and so part of the town has this much older architecture and part of the town has more modern architecture. And another thing you're want to see. Is the Britain parliament building and like I said Brennan kind of the. Of Brittany, and so this parliament building originally had a little bit more autonomy than it does now now. It's really part of France, but they still do some court cases here it's it's basically a court of Appeals. The architecture that's there is beautiful. Especially, the grown Sean Code they have paintings and tapestries in there. It's all Gold Leaf. I believe the

"A few miles. North of Edinburgh's Old Town on the coast of the birth of fourth. You'll you'll find historic port of leaf. Area was made up of several medieval settlements which by eighteen thirty three had grown into a burr and in nineteen twenty that Burr was merged into editor. Lee has quite the history. It was Scotland's main ports of trade and was the final stopping point of the Royal Yacht Britannia. And if that doesn't ring a bell maybe this will choose good health look cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments choose. I just thought it was the site of the old leaf station. Gave Birth to the title of Irvine. Welsh's novel trainspotting. Lead has more recently become one of Scotland's hottest food destinations traditional pubs fantastic food markets. Lead has something and for everyone and feeling a little more fancy. It's worth mentioning that. It's also home to a handful of Mitchum starred restaurants Scottish menswear menswear designer was born and bred in Edinburgh and today overlooking the water of Leith. You'll find his flagship store at custom lane is also casting and his wife. Gemma brand directive cast in hair call home leaf for us as a really lead by area. And it's a really good sense of a creative community that doesn't really exist elsewhere. In Edinburgh on I think that there is a level All of collaborative economy in customs. Wharf where you've got lots of different studios from lots of different disciplines which we can tap into which is really important for us. We've got photographers before graphic designers. There's jewelry makers architects so it makes for a really interesting dates day experience and you get pulled into lots of different projects acts that can enrich the whole the whole vibe so from a food. Point of view was really pioneering particularly within the high level Mitchell and star level with them. Food Leaf has always had sort of. It'd be more Mitchell and stars in any square mile in the country than it has been previously ICU with Castanon Jr and and to get the inside Info on leads top food and drink hot spots. And we're better place to start with breakfast. I think for for me it it's an everyday Place to go but definitely Bros bagels. I think on lethal walk. They they've been around nine maybe about a year. They've saw set themselves up at the sleepwalk which is really been a pretty bold move because it's been quite a kind of color full area going in there one of the first progressive food retailers really going. Mr They've always got a selection of probably maybe about ten different types of beagles. The E can pick from with all their different fillings. And it just delivers every time. Yeah you know. If you've AH ten minutes to get Beagle have not about better. Yeah Okay and then I wanNA smoke lunch. Where you'RE GONNA IF WE'RE GONNA quickly to nip how we probably we probably and Commons? They have an amazing onsite bakery. So it's always smells great and the sourdough bread is perfect and you can pick up. Take your breakfast I the next day. They do really good who pastries and sandwiches and soups. But if we're taking clients I there's some place called the shore which is an old school leaf beef establishment. It's slightly art deco inside. It's a really beautiful bar and kind of smooth mirrors and then you can have a really nice. Does beautiful fish sughrue fish restaurants along along. The waterfront starts with fishers. And then there's the shore and ship and kings wore when they're they're all really really great fish restaurants fishing japes leaf has got one of the best fish and chip restaurants in probably Scotland. It's called the new haven fish market on generally at key there for an hour in the summer chips and then coming into dinnertime. Where would you go for more laid back than a little favor of ours? The shafts are young. There's a love entrepreneurial. Young shafts are delivering amazing modern Scottish cuisine and I think they do a lot foraging. They've got low bar and quite often. When you're walkin there you can see what Lebron foraging origin? Four place on the bar. It's a really nice intimate experience. Bara is another one. That's literally just over. The water are really dynamic. Husband and wife you who they just you know when you can tell them their heart and soul into it and it's nice to go somewhere has set many but that it doesn't feel stuffy. There's new white tablecloths but there's really nice are on the walls there's good music play is a good atmosphere and the feed is really exciting. And it's actually very good value for money shifts would come from the Martin wishaw Autom- kitchen the training of these places. All they've been you know the Venus Scandinavia and working with or come back to you know. Add Marin started up their own restaurants in in small affordable places in Iran leaf. And I suppose that's the great thing about leaf it's been you know affordable for people to come in and and whether it's startups in in restaurants or in menswear or whatever is given a home in an incubator to showcase the best of en route can do do and then once you've lied to stomachs going get some drinks. Let's start off maybe with just sort of an old fashioned goodall pint buys your a favorite baiser Lee is really good for old fashioned boozers. And it's almost like the fish restaurants that this run along the waterfront nobles is probably one of the most famous ones. It's probably got some real stories to tell the history of the years you know particularly when the sailors were coming in here to darker think There's been in a few few stories told in some of these boozers. Sophie's another great boozer rose. Leaf is a is kind of almost I suppose our our local. Um I'm who also do great great from pub food the dreadnought is also quite like going to the treading on when we moved up here. I find it difficult to find a proper purpose. That wasn't just an old man's Poppin dreadnought really laid back by an which we really like clearly has a low competition your favorite boozers. If you want a glass of wine where you're GONNA go. I really liked the shore. Just feels I think. Because it's quite art deco in there and it's it's very atmospheric. It just feels really relaxed taxed. That's probably for me my favorite for glass of wine. You know some of the good restaurants like the Chop House of Great Barr beside them which is maybe a little bit more like a wine bar or kitchen kitchen restaurant and bar there as well? It's worth mentioning that you don't fancy the key see for a Bagel or dressing up for Mitcham Star. Dinner lethal also has a pretty spectacular food market called the pit and was never really had a kind of food market is such so started in effectively car park in with a garage next door to a and a couple of guys who had trucks maybe had restaurants and tyrone came down and just started up doing great food at really good prices and and then live music then started up by people guitars or saying kind of spawned into whole whole kind of music program and you know many better places for people to go in on a on a Saturday in the pit and the monarchial Cairn Banerjee and what better way to play now than with the track by Scottish music legends the proclaim.

So how did this inform the way that Fleming wrote about women and in particular the women that bond encounters brought what. This isn't a very very intriguing question.

"Start there. And then also I usually have enough seed that I can work with something that I'll do dissections. So I get in. And I see how thick is that seed coat is that embryo, really fully developed inside of something. So understanding the seed. Follivy where it's at what what it looks like when you've dissected it, cross wise or linked wise, you know, so it's just an interesting example of that as a group I'm fascinated with or the western North American area Gomez, or the, you know, the sulfur buckwheat. And you know, it's a huge group, but they all have these beak shape seeds aunt at the tip of that beak is the radical end of the route. And if you're cleaning those seeds and getting them out of the flower parts, if you damage that you've essentially killed that plant. So even how you clean the seed away from the chaff in the detritus is really important and that affects germination and wild species often don't have high levels of germination like purchase seat. So looking at where they come from looking at familial sociation doing seat dissections looking at timing of. A year as a big deal as well wind as it set seed if it set seed late in the fall or late in the season in a cold area or an area that get snow and cold and freezing. You can almost be assured that there's going to be some sort of chemical dormancy built into that. So the seeds germinate right away. Has to have a cold stratification to overcome that. So we talk about college of place in wind is it set seed can have a lot to do with where you start. So knowing the life cycle of the plant knowing the seeds where they come from win their generated has a lot to do with where all start, and again, just that familiarity that you need to have with a single species probably teaches you so much more about the Cosette that they hail from the climate that they hail from the geology all that stuff in. It's it's all based out of wanting to grow a plant in. That's what I try to communicate a lot with people is just there's so much more to this than just it's pretty. Yeah. I can put it in a window. So why is it dead darn it? So I mean in thinking about the mission following german-asian. You want these plants to grow you want to be able to propagate them. You know, you're you're at a botanical garden your breeding plants. Right. I mean, what what is it like after you get a species to start growing? You're not just gonna keep one or a couple in some pots tucked away. I mean, this is this is there's a bigger mission at hand. They're right, right. You know? So a lot of it's about having things on display. Some of it is about just getting specimens in having them as part of a collection. We we work with a lot of different groups in the lot of different agencies and things like that. So we'll do research for people in sometimes the research at our end is just getting something to Germany developing some sort of practical protocol, so that a land manager can go back and take those into practice for restoration or reclamation. So. We do a lot with those plants, and then once we have them as collection items, then we can think about while his it display worthy cause sometimes plant is ecologically important. It's rare, and it has attributes that are important ecologically. But you look at it. And it's just not pretty so, that's okay. It's okay to have those. But when you have things that are really beautiful and tell the story and have something behind it than you want to capitalize on that as well. So like, my my James Britannia, you know, right now got thirty two thirty six plants of it in the first one bloomed and will trial that and other areas and figure out how do we get it from my greenhouses into a garden space, what does it want? So we'll try it in different areas than go back knowing that the plant comes from alpine rocky sort of scree areas and.

"Today. We're going to look at an audio drama for marvel then we'll go old school and visit a comic from ancient Rome in the late sixties. So let's get in and out. The long night podcast is an audio drama based on the marvel character will rain, I hope they do more of these in the future this podcast came out. I think only a few months ago and shortly after I wrote this it was announced that they would do a second season called Marvel's wolverine. The loss trail being in the audio world. I know this type of storytelling can be just as difficult to make as a comic book. Now. Don't get me wrong. Both are great. And they tell a story, but they're both taxing on their creators. I've listened to many old time radio broadcasts. And that's how this podcast is done. And they're fun to listen to if you haven't listened to any of those old audio dramas, I suggest you do it on clued Lincoln the show notes to some old audio drama. People have posted on archive dot org. Audio has the good and bad benefit of not being a complete medium the difference between a TV show, and the audio drama is not everything is thrown at you. When you watch something on a screen, you're giving both. Visual and the audio. Your brain doesn't have to fill in any of the gaps with audio your brain has to draw the pictures of the scenes that the characters is scenes and the characters for you based upon what you hear and what your mind can conjure in the podcast in world the fiction genre has seen an increase in popularity in the last year. I believe this will continue to be the case over the next few years. Now, it assume that you're a fan of audio because you're listening right now, it's a personal medium. And what I mean is it's not something you typically listen to as a group. It's your player of choice in a pair of ear buds the tests on how good a podcast or audio book is is when you're listening in the car in it prevents you from getting out if it does then that's a good podcast or audio book or audio drama, whatever you wanna call it. I wanna take you back in the way back machine to the late nineties. I listened to a lot of books on tape back then because back then the word. No podcasts you had to rewind. If the previous person didn't and the portable tape player used just seem to go through AA battery so fast. I'm sounding like an old man yelling at kids get off my lawn. But anyway, fast forward to today and the effort to listen to audio like most things is almost friction lists. You can listen to whatever you want whenever you want. It's not like radio where you have to listen to whatever they want you to listen to also the barrier of entry to produce podcasts or audiobooks is much easier than it used to be. I'm not saying either as easy the -bility to get your product to the consumers relatively easy compared to ten years ago. Just like in previous episodes. I've talked about the barrier of entry as lower which is a good thing for all of us in my opinion. If you like a particular podcast, please let them know. Sometimes we as podcasters wondering. Hello, hello. Is anyone listening all the podcasters? I've talked to and listened to they all. All one hundred percent agree that when they get an Email from a listener, it gives them a huge boost. It helps them be more excited for the next episode. I think this would be a good idea for most of the things that we consume whether it's a blog post or a simple piece of digital art. Let the creator. No that you like it. It doesn't have to be lengthy a simple. Good job. Keep up the good work. We'll do wonders for creators morale. And that's why I try to do as many shoutouts to the people who contact who make contact with me. I hope you will give them a look in get some value from them, and let them know that they are putting out good content. Now, it's comic book review time, and I have two great books. I think you'll enjoy the first one is Britannia from valiant. And here's the solicit ruled by the fates manipulated by the gods commanded by Caesar in the year, sixty five AD one's destiny was not his own at the height of Niro's rain veteran Roman imperial warm. Sheen has been dispatched to the farthest reaches of the colonies to investigate unnatural happenings in the remote outpost of Britannia and Taina sacks. Yeah. The first detective will become Rome's only hope to reassert control over the empire's most barbaric frontier and keep the monsters that bridge the line between myth and mystery at bay. This is the first of three volumes released as of this recording in all three are fabulous in my opinion. Peter Milligan keeps the dialogue moving along nicely. He's the writer and also keeps you wondering about who did it until the very last page, then the art by one Jose Reeb goes into such detail and seems to get the period piece correctly. He's meticulous about every single little detail, for example on one page. We see our hero and Thomas walking down the streets as he and he draws the details of each street vendor down to the apples and carrots, and strawberries that they're selling as I mentioned. Inde the veteran. Legionnaire Taina's AXA axiom is a detective who has hesitantly working for the mad Imber Nero. I guess to sum it up. It's imagined Sherlock Holmes being thrust back into Roman times to solve crimes for the empire. When I first saw the solicit last year, I just really wasn't interested. But then I saw it again about a month ago. And I couldn't stop reading all three volumes. If you're a Roman history fan, you'll love it. If you're not you will still appreciate the art. And the amazing story that they've put together now side note, if you want to hear a great Roman history podcast the history of Rome by Mike Duncan is amazing. It's an older one. But it's still a great podcast might goes out of his way to get everything as accurate as possible. He starts with the founding of Rome by Romulus and Rimas and ends with the last western emperor, enforce seventy two AD. It's a fantastic simple way. To learn about Roman history. And I will include linked to the history of Rome podcast in the show notes. The second comic. I wanna talk about is the secret six which first appeared during the initial teams seven issue title secret, six from may nineteen sixty eight to may nineteen sixty-nine. Unusually the premiere issue story began on the cover and continued on the interior page. One this strike team of covert operatives. Consisted of August. Durant? Lili de never Carlo Duran's a Mike tempest crimson, dawn and king savage. Now, the second comic I wanted to talk about was called the secret six by DC comics, the first appeared during the initial tee teams seven issue run titled the secret six for may nineteen sixty eight to may nineteen sixty nine Carl Smith friend of the show who's a writer with the patriot. By the way, include a link to his patriot in the show notes. Checkout had mentioned the secret six a long time ago. I decided to check it out. I like the simplicity of the. Retelling? There's not a whole lot of complicated characters and in depth storylines. Basically the team has given an assignment, and they are tasked by completing the assignment one story is to recover the stolen jewels. Another is to seal steal some plans for secret jet before the communist, get them. Sometimes a personally wants to read a simple action issue and be done with it. We don't need a whole lot more. Like all teams though, each member has their own set of set of skills and abilities in which there are six of them. Hence the secret six title. This allows a story to us each member to complete their missing mission. Although the title is fifty years old. I still like the storytelling the fact that it is fifty years old as part of the fun. You can tell it was written at the height of the Cold War because the reader hears the word Kami multiple times. And it's a it's a product of its time. Also, the old stew school ads are interesting and funny like the two man submarine for only six dollars and ninety cents or. Selling greeting cards for amazing prices and own clued. The pictures of some of these ads in the show notes. I'm guarantee you most of you out there will recognize him. If you read any comics from even the eighties. A lot of these ads were still in now, she number one. They started the story on the cover which is a unique thing to do. And I'll try to include a picture of that in the show notes as well. But check it out. It's it's difficult to find. But it is still out there. I think they've collected them into a trade paperback, but I would strongly recommend just taking a look at it. It's a it's a good fun throwback to the
