Antigonus the One-Eyed was a big man, so big in fact that his story couldn’t be contained in a single episode. In part one we learn all about Antigonus’ parenting style, horrible dad jokes, and we finally, FINALLY deal with those pesky Silver Shields. Plus, Meredith regrets being an organ donor.

Polyperchon

Tuesday Jul 11, 2023

Tuesday Jul 11, 2023

You’ve waited with bated breath, but he’s here! It’s POLYPERCHON! What happens when you give control of a massive empire to a mediocre commander who tries way too hard? And if everyone already knows you’re a disappointment, can you ever really let them down? We answer these questions and more on today’s episode! Brought to you by a professional wrestling interview that totally happened and the letter “S” (for obviousssss reassssonssss).

Alexander IV

Tuesday Jun 13, 2023

Tuesday Jun 13, 2023

Well, we learned a lot in this episode! First, being the son of a king may not be as awesome as you’d think. Sure, you get the royal treatment, but you never know when someone might throw you in a dungeon for no reason. Second, you can squeeze water from a stone, but it kind of hurts. Third, toy commercials can be dark. Fourth, Dustin learns not to sit so close to the mic. Come hear the story of Alexander IV!

Eumenes

Thursday Jun 01, 2023

Thursday Jun 01, 2023

Come hear about the best boy, the most betrayed boy, the most beloved boy! Hear the tales of the Greek who eats adversity for breakfast and treats treachery like it was just a sneeze! He can make scrambled eggs from a rock! He can make a horse run on a treadmill without even using the treadmill! He’s loyal to the end! He will call you a moron if you betray him! He’s right about everything but no one ever listens! He’s Eumenes of Cardia!!! Also, Dustin has some great tips about interacting with horses [MEREDITH EDIT: no, he doesn’t].

Arrhidaeus and Eurydice

Wednesday May 10, 2023

Wednesday May 10, 2023

AND WE'RE BACK! Took long enough, didn't it? How easily a few weeks turned into five months. But to pay back your patience, we've got a treat for you: It's a double-whammy!!!! Not one, not three, not five and-a-half, but TWO rulers for you in this episode! Plus all kinds of new stuff! New music, new degrees, new cats, new apartments, guest stars, monster truck rallies, and so much more! But still the same whacky, backstabbing Hellenistic stories you know and love... plus the same silly hosts. And now, if someone ever asks "if there's a doctor in the house," somebody here gets to give a really annoying answer!

The briefest hiatus

Wednesday Dec 14, 2022

Wednesday Dec 14, 2022

Remember when we posted the first episodes on a weekly basis? Pepperidge Farm remembers...
But seriously, the winter season brings food, festivities, and (for those of us working in education) a lot of work to catch up on! So right when we realized we were starting to average a month between episodes, we decided that it might be best for us to take a step back, catch our breath, and come back stronger (and sillier) than ever. Even Alexander took time off to recuperate, but that was usually after he did something profoundly stupid! We, at least, are trying to catch up on some work. 
Thus, we're gonna go on a brief hiatus. But don't worry, we'll be back in the stomp of an elephant's foot (go listen to the Perdiccas episode if you don't get that joke; hey we have inside jokes now!). We're far too nerdy to disappear for good. In the meantime, we hope everyone has a great holiday season and/or winter break! See you soon!

Antipater

Thursday Nov 17, 2022

Thursday Nov 17, 2022

Well, it took long enough! Today's episode is about the joy of old age, rebellions, sound effects, and (most importantly) love. Antipater's episode isn't as shocking as Perdiccas' antics, but maybe someone gets their tongue cut out. Plus, we tell you why you shouldn't throw rocks at people walking outside your city and why poison should only be carried in a horse's hoof.
