In this newest episode of the A.D. History Podcast, Paul and Patrick are joined by the fantastic Jewish History YouTube creator – Sam Aronow. In their discussion with Sam, they go into depth about the rather spontaneous uprisings that occurred behind the lines of Trajan’s invasion of Parthia – the Kitos War – and what later became the devastating Bar Kokhba Revolt that has horrific implications for centuries to follow.

The A.D. History Podcast explores the last two thousand years of world history in an innovative new way. Join hosts Paul K. DiCostanzo and Patrick Foote as they examine the past two millennia, beginning in 1 AD, and progressing forward ten years every episode until they reach the modern day. Within each ten-year installment, Paul and Patrick aim to share incredibly important, but often overlooked fascinating historic events and figures from around the world in prospective fashion; attempting to see history through the eyes and in the world of those who lived it. By identifying these sometimes lesser known - but in no way less significant aspects of history - the A.D. History Podcast endeavors to take these many disparate threads and weave a fuller, richer tapestry of true world history from 1AD to HD.
