Monty Python’s Life of Brian REVIEW | A.D. HISTORY WATCHES

For the holiday season we debut the series “A.D. HISTORY WATCHES,” reviewing as historians the satire classic “Monty Python’s Life of Brian.”



As we head into this holiday season, Paul and Patrick have decided to do a special episode looking at the classic comedy film, Monty Python’s Life of Brian. It is a brief diversion where, in the spirit of the season, where Paul and Patrick have some fun as historical presenters looking at modern satire – following from the previous episode’s discussion about Juvenal the Satirist.

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.
