Historians Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook are interrogating the past and attempting to de-tangle the present.


They discuss every historical topic under the sun: the birth of modernity, Julius Caesar crossing the Rubicon, and whether Richard Nixon was more like Caligula or Claudius.  


They're distilling the entirety of human history, or, as much as they can fit into about fifty minutes.
