Alex Gough – Carbo Chronicles, ancient Rome, swearing in historical novels, music and loads more!
Alex Gough is an author of Roman historical adventures. The Carbo Chronicles, including Watchmen of Rome and Bandits of Rome, was written as a result of a lifelong obsession with ancient Rome, and the culmination of a lot of research into the underclasses of the time. He has also written a collection of adventures following Carbo and other characters from Watchmen of Rome, where you can learn more about their rich lives.
Alex loves our theme song so much that he recorded a cool tribute to it which you can find at the end of the episode.
If you’re a musician and want to record your own cover version, send it to us and we’ll use it in a future episode (unless it’s really, REALLY bad lol)!
