Thank you, Mike, for an incredible journey. Long airport waits won't be the same without your podcast. Good luck with the baby, it's an amazing experience.
All the best,

Thanks for all the hard work! It's been a fun ride.

Thank you for this final wrap-up episode. Good luck and a suggestion -- sell a CD/DVD containing MP3's of the entire series with a nice picture of you and some Roman sights on the cover (maybe from one of your tours) -- I would buy it and I am sure many other fans would as well.

Thank you Mike. In the History of Rome, I am like Vespasian, a man improved.

I've been a listener since episode 8 (and even stuck it out through brief hiatus between episodes 33 and 34!) and wanted to briefly extend a heartfelt "thank you" for the time and effort you've put into making this a wonderful show. Best of luck with everything.

Thanks for sticking with it all this time; this has been a really beautiful and well-done series, and I'm so grateful that The History of Rome has been a part of my life for so long. Thank you.
May 06, 2012 at 12:27 PM
Thanks for the great series! Now that it's done, I'm going to have to listen to the whole thing over again from the beginning.

It's been a long, strange trip, Mike, and even though I wish you were continuing, I understand why you can't. Thank you so much for the time you've put into this and the enjoyment you've given me. It just won't be the same without your weekly commentary. Best of luck with the baby. I know it's going to be an even wilder ride with more twists and turns, successes and reverses than the history of Rome (and when the kid becomes a toddler, you'll know what the Romans felt like when they saw the Vandals approach the city). Anyway, best wishes, and as the Romans would have said, Vale et pax tecum.

From the very beginning, you have done an awesome job and have made many sacrifices in your personal life to educate us. Enjoy your new boy. He will grow to manhood knowing that he has a "giant" for a father.

Awesome! I came upon your beautiful podcast a few months ago, downloaded the lot and been listening in the car non-stop and only just now caught up.
And now it's ended!! :(
(tear trickles down cheek)
I hear you won't continue with the Byzantine Empire :( but I understand. Priorities.
(I second the suggestion about the CD. I'll buy too)
Good luck with the baby.
And Thank you!

Thank you so much, Mike. Your series has enriched my life and is an amazing achievement. Folding laundry, walking to pick up the kids from school, jogging etc. won't be the same. I've shared THoR with some bright young people and gotten them hooked on Roman history--you've made a bigger impact than you might realize. Enjoy your baby!

Merci pour ce podcast, Mike! It was a pleasure to follow it all these years.

Thank you very much mike. Hopefullly we'll meet in a future rome tour, money and kids permitting. You've been a lot a fun, and i will miss our weekly one-way discussions - outside of my wife, i don't know of anyone i've let talk to me without talking back for so long!

Mike, been with you from the beginning. Found your podcast after you had posted only a few episodes. I can't believe its over. What a great journey. I'm going to feel like a friend is missing. Thank you for all the work you put into the podcast. It was an awesome series. Hope you'll do another in the future. I wish you and your family all the best. I agree with the comment about a CD.
May 06, 2012 at 01:22 PM
Thanks Mike for all your time and effort, it’s been greatly appreciated. Here’s wishing you the best in your future endeavours.
May 06, 2012 at 01:38 PM
Thanks Mike, really really sad it's over! What will I listen to doing the washing-up now? I may have to work out how to download them all and listen through again! You've even managed to get my 12-year old interested in history ("even though he's American"). All the best.
May 06, 2012 at 01:59 PM
Many thanks Mike. You have accomplished one of the internet's greatest achievements with good humour and great erudition. Good luck with the baby. I hope that you will be back with another series one day in the future.

No other podcast and no other treatment of the subject matter compares to what you have done. There wasn't a single bad episode. Not one. Thank you. Though we've never met, I truly feel as though I am saying good bye to a friend.

I really can't thank you enough Mike for this wonderful podcast that has given me so many, many hours of entertainment.
This was one of the first podcasts that I started listening to several years ago, and is still by far the best on my now substantial list of podcasts.
I'm really not sure what I'm going to do now without my weekly fix of Roman history, except I guess go back and listen to them all again.
Thanks again, and best wishes for the future.
