Another Break

I wanted to let everyone know that the latest Episode, “Perish in Blood”, will be the last one for a month or two.  I’ll be off on Vacation for a while, and generally taking a break.  In the meantime, I hope you’re all enjoying the Severan story arc.  Like I mentioned early on, the extended family of Julia Domna was the original inspiration of the series, and I’m hoping to flesh out all the family members as much as I can.  At the same time, I’m planning to give a lot of attention to the Sasanids, including their history and background, their conflict with the Parthians, and – eventually – their conflict with Julia Domna’s great-nephew, Severus Alexander.  So, look for all that when I pick the story back up in a month or two. 

In the meantime, please do a couple things to support the show.  First, for those of you on iTunes, please swing by and review The Ancient World.  You can just give it a starred rating, or you can also leave a comment, which I always love to read.  And second, The Ancient World may be in the running for this year’s Podcast Awards.  The final slate will be announced on May 22 at  On the off-chance we are in the running, please do whatever you can to support the show – it’s a great way to get the word out.  Otherwise, thanks again for listening, and I’ll see you in a month or two!

  1. Thanks, you made my day! The good news is I just finished drafting the next episode last night. My current MO is to have 3 drafted before I start production mode. So hopefully there'll be a new episode up in less than a month. Take care, and thanks!

  2. Similar cast for the first 2 (new) Eps, then things should change up a bit. The way things are progressing, I'm shooting for mid-July release 😉 Take care

  3. HI I'm new here. I can't get enough of Iranian history programmes, well, because there's not that much out there.

    You say you'll be going deep into Sassnias history? I can't wait!

    All the best

  4. Hi! Yes, I've already written one Episode (upcoming Episode B34) that gives a bit of background on the Sasanids. I plan to cover them much more in this series, and (possibly) in another upcoming project. Stay tuned!

  5. Scott? Love your podcasts. I have learned so much than what I thought I knew. Keep up the good work. NEVER STOP these. They're awesome!!! Maybe one day you can go into the history of the Anam elish (sp?), epic of Gilgamesh, and the Christian bible all in one with their similarities, old testament wise. Thanks again for such an awesome podcast.

  6. Hi! Really glad you're enjoying the podcast. I enjoy making them, so it's a win-win 😉 I've probably got at least a dozen more episodes left in this series – and I've also got a couple ideas for what I might want to cover next. Either way, I'll try to keep things interesting & enjoyable 😉 Take care!
