Ancient History Hound


Hi there, this is the Ancient History Hound, a podcast where I look at ancient Greece and Rome and some of the less covered aspects of them. If you love ancient history, tangents and the odd pun then I reckon you'll enjoy it here.

Find my articles and vlogs at my website ancientblogger.com or come say hi on twitter (@ancientblogger).

In this podcast I look at the oddity that was ostracism in Ancient Athens. Why was it needed? What did it aim to do? There's also a brief chat about tyrants and which includes an instance which Herodotus calls the silliest trick in history.
