Season 2: Episode 21: Should we remember Augustus for his war on women?
With Dr. Barry Strauss
A provocative title perhaps, but this week Kelsie and Brooke are joined on the podcast by Dr. Barry Strauss. We are talking Ancient Rome, Cleopatra, Octavia, the Julias and other women whose stories have been overshadowed by their male peers. Strauss is a classicist and a military and naval historian and a professor of history at Cornell University. He is the Series Editor of Princeton’s Turning Points in Ancient History and author of eight books on ancient History. You can find his book, THE WAR THAT MADE THE ROMAN EMPIRE, here.
