Ghosts of Cannae links and audiocasts
- Salvete omnes!
I just listened to a remarkably circumspect interview with Robert O'Connell
on the Battle of Cannae (216 BCE: Hannibal 10, Rome nil). The hour-long
interview is on the Canadian Broadcasting Corp's "Ideas" radio series. As a
new program, it will not be available to listen on line for couple of weeks,
but do bookmark it if this is an area of interest for you. "Ideas" programs
tend to go into more depth and/or tackle different angles than other
There's a thumbnail description on the weekly schedule page, but watch for
this to move to "Program Features" or "Past Episodes" (right sidebar) as
this week closes. In all cases, look for the airdate *Friday, March 11.
Meantime, until the CBC podcast becomes available (free!), here's O'Connell
on the USA's National Public Radio -- also a very credible source of
first-rate programming: This also includes a one-page excerpt from Chapter
one of the book.
More details on The Ghosts of Cannae here. If not done before, maybe a
suggestion for 2012 (auc2765)??
