In this newest edition of the A.D. History Podcast, Paul and Patrick explore a very unlikely – yet highly revealing – aspect of Roman society, satire. Specifically by exploring one of Rome’s most infamous satirists… Juvenal! Juvenal provides a perspective that skewers both the world of high Roman politics, as well as Rome’s seedy underbelly.
For the second segment, Paul breaks down in full exactly how the hell we ended up with the historical concept of the “Five Good Emperors.” If you enjoyed our previous episode’s interview with Sam Aranow, it would be very difficult to consider the acts of Hadrian as “good.” So, what gives? We have the very answer for you!
