In this episode I interview historian and author of Killing for the Republic, Steele Brand.

We talk about what made the Roman Republic so successful, what glued it all together, briefly introduced the intentional myth building framed by the founding fathers of the USA and how they appropriated from the Romans

All before falling into a trap I set for myself, and spending the remainder of our time on Rome’s Punic wars.
