Aww, congrats on your giant baby! Ours was born on May 23rd, after 9 months of his mom listening to THoR every single night. He has no idea how close he was to being named "Scipio." :)

Congratulations and good luck, Duncan family.

Congrats! Absolutely stunning. Best of the Best Mike and Mrs. History of Rome. It was an absolute privilege to listen while everything was live. I don't know if you listen to any baseball Mike, but when you hear the same voice for so long they stop being informational and start being old friends. Youve been on my runs in Austin, on countless plane rides home (I travel every week), on trains, during work, and in the quiet weekday evenings. I've loved your asides, jokes, and the way youve described it all. The very very best wishes for you and I do hope you continue on when the time is right- you're so good at it. If not, best best best wishes.

Congratulations. I had let some time slip by since my last podcast listen. I was surprised at the end of the podcast but knew it was coming and very happy for you and your wife's new baby. I did drop in a donation since it had been a while. I was happy you moved to Austin and hope you have had some enjoyable times. Yeah, it's hot. That's what lakes and swimming pools are for. Thanks for a wonderful experience. Best regards, John Gower

He must be raised in a camp, to the spear and the sword. He must learn command, and a stoic disregard for discomfort. Then, in the ripeness of his maturity, he will return to the capitol and take up the mantle of...blogger.

Congratulations to THoR family!
Given he is the Third Rome, I'm a little surprised that his name doesn't incorporate Rus within it; then again, that's a historical tidbit for another project.
Good, strong looking son. May he serve the Pater Familias well!
June 18, 2012 at 02:03 PM
Congratulations a million times over!!!!!!

He's beautiful! All the best in your family and professional life. I wish Elliott William Duncan an engaging and happy experience. Have you dressed him in his cute little baseball jersey?
I enjoyed the podcast immensely and the Podcast Squared interview said it all, No one else can do Rome, for sure.

I envy the the kid.I bet your going to tell the best bed time stories ever.
June 26, 2012 at 06:42 PM
Extremely rad! Congratulations! That is absolutely fantastic news.
Mike, I just finished listening to "The End" and I got a little emotional. I started listening to the podcast when you were on your seven-month hiatus and it's been a real delight. Your podcast inspired me to do my own history podcast as my senior project and ultimately decide to major in history in college. That was a huge decision not made lightly and THoR pointed me in the right direction. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. You are truly awesome.

Congrats again Mike. I’m just dropping a note to let you know that someone has decide to pick up where you left off.
I'm not sure exactly what your plans are for the next podcast and although you said it wouldn't be ancient of American history I suspect it will involve Europe.
If you were to follow European history in the aftermath of the fall of the western empire it would be a great compliment to the Byzantium podcast and would give us all an amazing perspective of the history of the entire region.
You and Mr. Robin could even collaborate as I’m sure he would welcome your advice. He seems to be a great fan of yours and talented in his own right.
Good luck on your future endeavors.

Further to earlier congratualtion, I really do miss my weekly fix.
I cannot find another to replace your excellent, informative and witty commentary.
Let us know your next project.
In the meantime enjoy your son
June 30, 2012 at 04:49 AM
Congratulations! Children are a true and special blessing.
Also, I wanted to say, I thouroughly enjoyed every episode of your podcast - and eagerly await your next project!

I'm glad to know the name of the next Augustus. :)
I'd also like to thank you for helping me on my Latin certification exam. There were about 20 questions about Roman history, and there wasn't a single one I didn't know because I first heard you talking about it on this podcast. You aren't just a good podcaster: you're a life-changer. Thanks again! :D
July 12, 2012 at 09:38 PM
Well done and congrats. Life has taken a different and wonderful path. Can't wait to hear from you soon !!!
