: In Part 1 of a three-episode series on the dying days of the Roman Republic, we’ll meet the four key players of the 1st century B.C.: Sulla, Pompey, Crassus, and Julius Caesar! Along the way, we’ll see how the line between buffoonery and awesomeness is sometimes very fine, why some public services ought not to be privatized, and that Crassus was literally Hitler.
