  • 19:08 – Main Topic (The First Commandment)

On episode NINETY-FOUR of Let the Bird Fly! Mike and Wade sit down with Professor Sheena Finnigan to discuss Rome’s transition from a republic. What made it possible for Caesar to become dictator? What contributed to the desire for strong emperors instead? Are there parallels to our own day? What is fair to compare and what isn’t? What is the value of history when it comes to such things? We enjoyed having Prof. Finnigan on for this discussion, we think you’ll enjoy it too!
