Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers



"fake stuff that only happened to women" I laughed so hard

the whole bit on pliny criticizing the other dude was golden too

great ep


I usually listen in the car and have the volume up reasonably loud to hear clearly. So when the guy starts screaming "MEDECINES THE MEDECINES!!!!" That is when I start mashing the fast forward button. I usually just skip all the ads while I'm at it. I am happy that you love the song but it is very jarring in the middle of a very mellow podcast.


Great podcast. Loved the fact you mentioned Mithridate or Mithridatium. The history/ legend of Mithridates (source of Mithridate) is really interesting. The book The Poison King: The Life and Legend of Mithradates, Rome's Deadliest Enemy, by Adrienne Mayor talks about Mithridates and his history with poisons and supposed antidotes. Good read.

Thanks for your great podcasts!
