Detlef beat you to the punch. I have already voted 3 times and will keep doing so every day while the voting is still open. A very very very small thank you for all the happy listening hours you have given me. I have just finished listening to the complete series for the third time.

As an academic resident in Rome for some thirty years now I have become a history of Rome buff. I came across The History of Rome quite by accident about a fortnight ago and have by now listened to all the casts and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Thank you and keep up the excellent work.

Hi Mike, Congratulations on the nominations, I voted today and plan to vote for as long as we can. I have a question, whenever I picture the legionaries of the empire throughout the podcast I always wonder what armour and weapons they used, and when they were used and when they stopped using specific armour and weapons. For example In the video game "ROME: Total war", before the Marian reforms shows republican legion infantry with a mix of plate and mail armour, after the marian reforms legions have a lorica hamata, or segmentata, combined with a reinforced gallic helmet and scutum, so i would like to know if they immediately switched after the reforms or is it was a gradual process. So I was wondering if you could give us examples what they used in different periods in Roman history and when. I know i'm probably kind of late asking this since we are past the Marian reforms so maybe you could stick it in when you talk about the reforms of Diocletean and Constantine. Thank you very much in advance if you could do this.

would it be cheating if you change your name and email address and vote like 20 times a day?

Voted this morning. Congratulations on your nomination. I'm trying to share the news with friends and colleagues to get even more people to vote, and to listen too. Thanks always for the podcast, and we'll keep voting and crossing our fingers.

Outstanding podcast. I ran across this podcast on a podcast app for my Droid, the episode was "Black and White and Severus All Over." When I finally got to your website I thought I was in heaven, hours and hours of podcasts about Rome from start to Severus.
Ironically I had been to your website several times before during some random search for Roman history. Not realizing what I was looking at I would return to the google results.
Long winded way to say thanks and keep up the great work!

Mike..I have Just voted and will as long as I can. I am 64 years old and all my life I have been interested in The Romans. Thank you for this amazing History which you explain in a professional yet relaxed manner you make me feel "involved". I live in the North of England not far from Ribchester where there was a Roman fortification, not much left of it today, The truth is both the UK and USA owe so much to the Roman Empire if the people did but know it, it is often said there is nothing new under the sun and look at all the wheeling and dealing etc that goes on in our world well as you explain it was all there in the Roman empire with politicians and hangers on etc.

I've just discovered this podcast and I'm in heaven! Studied Latin at high school and Roman history right from high school through college and now I'm in the "real world" I miss it greatly... why couldn't I have found this sooner? The only good thing is I can now gorge on the early podcasts =)

Mike - just wanted to let you know that I have voted for THOR. Though I have to say that I saw lots of other Podcasts on the list while voting and they looked very good too . . . anyway I'm with you for the moment.
Also to say that I have really enjoyed the podcast. it is one of the highlights of the week as I trawl to and from work.
So thanks. And I'm off to try Grammar Girl now ...

Mike, I have been listening for 15 months and am totally enthralled. I have taken to revisiting early episodes as well.
My brother recently discovered THoR and listened to episodes 1 through 115 in only 4 weeks, amazing!
I voted for you - outstanding.

Sorry I got here late to the party--- I was saving up "Palmyrene Wars" until this weekend! Voted today, and I'll flip the switch for you every time I'm allowed.
Y'know--thought I wouldn't like this podcast much. I've been a devotee of Roman history (Tacitus is God!!) since college, and I figured that there was nothing new here. But it's really, really fantastic to hear another voice on all these sources, putting it all together in such a succinct and clever way.
Way, way cool, dude! THoR rox-- may it ever wave!
