  1. Definitely! Go to the iTunes store, click on Podcasts, and search for "The Ancient World." 2 podcasts should come up, mine is the one with "Scott C." Good luck!

  2. Hey, I just started listening this week and I'm loving the podcast so far. I can't wait for the next episode. Keep up the great work!

  3. Great Podcast Scott,
    I've been listening to all of them while I work. Ancient Civ has never been more interesting.

    I'd love to hear more about the Hittites. It's hard to find good information on them.

    Keep it up. And thanks for putting these out.

  4. Thanks Drew! I also wasn't aware of a lot of these civilizations when I first started my research. Plenty more Hittites in Episodes 8 & 9, and (coincidentally) I also talk about them in the brand new episode (R8) that I'm posting this Friday. Glad you're enjoying the series! – Scott C.
