History of Rome Podcasts

I've really been enjoying these "History of Rome" podcasts.  My favorite line from episode 136:
Diocletian had done his best to establish a system that would end once and for all the persistent civil wars that had wracked the Empire of the 3rd century. And instead, he inadvertently had drawn up what amounted to a giant civil war tournament bracket. In the championship game, Constantine finally had emerged victorious.
