What would make for a good topic of conversation for the very first episode of the Ancient World Magazine podcast? We settled upon talking why we decided to study the ancient world and this led to a broader discussion of the merits of studying ancient history, archaeology, and classics.

For this very first episode, archaeologist Josho Brouwers is joined by ancient historians Joshua R. Hall and Roel Konijnendijk. If you prefer, we also turned the podcast into a video that you can listen to over on YouTube.
