A NSFW LONG-FORM PODCAST ABOUT

JULIUS / AUGUSTUS / TIBERIUS / CALIGULA / CLAUDIUS CAESAR

 THE FALL OF THE ROMAN REPUBLIC

& THE BEGINNING OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE.

We started in 2014 with a 48-episode series on Julius Caesar.

Then… we did a 100 episodes on Augustus Caesar. Then 40 episodes on Tiberius Caesar. We are currently doing a new series on Caligula. We’ll probably keep going at least until Nero… or one of us dies. Then… we’ll play it by ear.

PREMIUM SERIES

The current series (Claudius) is free – but our Julius, Augustus, Tiberius and Caligula series are available via premium subscription.  Details here.

Welcome To The Life of the Caesars!

This show is different from most other history podcasts in the following ways.

1. There are TWO OF US. This is a conversation, not a lecture.

2. It’s LONG FORM. Which means we will often take 50 – 100 episodes to tell a story. If you want a quick overview, this is not the show for you!

3. It’s NSFW. While we take the history very seriously, we also know that learning is more effective when you’re having fun. Sometimes (okay, quite often) “having fun” for us translates as bad language and dirty jokes. Let’s face it – this history is violent and sexy. This is NOT a child-friendly show, nor is it safe for work.

4. We sometimes CHARGE MONEY. We do this for a living and put a lot of time and effort into making our content. Our current series is free but to listen to the old series you need to become a subscriber, Feel free to listen to the free ones and then, if you like them, register to listen to the rest.

And on to Caligula…

★★★★★ in Apple Podcasts by Tricycle II from Australia on October 28, 2019

Having heard this double act since they made their mark with the original Julius Caius Ceasar, I dread to think how far this will go having such a twisted subject matter. Having watched ‘ I, Claudius’ inspired by these two, I can only sense Ray is Claudius to Cam’s Caligula. Only a man with a cunning plan could possibly survive what is being thrashed around and at him. History? Oh, bit of that too. Carlos (Sydney)

Great show

★★★★★ in Apple Podcasts by She must have a bad love life from United States of America on October 10, 2019

Just all around a good show. I listened to the first 25 episodes about the big JC in a span of 10 days and then realized you had to pay to listen to the second half. The decision was so easy and I can’t wait to listen to the next 25! Cam and Ray took me a bit to get used to and I wasn’t sure how I felt after a few episodes, but I decided to just keep listening and I am glad I did. These two make history fun to learn and not one episode goes by without me laughing my butt off. The negative reviews you might see are usually people that just don’t want to hear ideas that are different than theirs. I am a Republican and love this show brought to pay for it! Keep it up guys and I can’t wait to get over to your Alexander the Great show!

The Best to Ever Do It!

★★★★★ in Apple Podcasts by Angelo Iaconetti from United States of America on July 28, 2019

The podcast is well-researched, offers thought-provoking insight, and is down-right hilarious. If you are attracted to the idea of learning mountains of fascinating minutiae about historical figures and events that your high school history books glossed over in a paragraph or two while simultaneously laughing uncontrollably, look no further than Ray and Cam. Cam has a beautiful, inquisitive mind and an innate ability to seamlessly relay a captivating narrative while boring deep into the recesses of historical themes and current events alike. Ray’s contribution is actually immeasurable. In all honesty, I wouldn’t choose to spend my time listening to anything else. 5 stars all day every day!
