  1. I recall that when I took Latin in High School that Agricola was pronounced by my instructor Mrs. Eley as Ag-REEK-oh-la, whereas your style reminds me of a carbonated beverage for farmers.[ Of course, the word agricola does in fact mean farmer.]

    1. That’s a good idea, I’ll try to be better about that. As I recall the only music I used in this episode was Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack to Navajo Joe. That’s the “AhhhhhhhAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA EAAAAGGHHHH!!!!!!!!” song, and the other epic guitar one.

      1. “That’s the “AhhhhhhhAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA EAAAAGGHHHH!!!!!!!!” song”

        This had me giggling at my desk for a good 5 minutes. Excellent description of the song! ;D

  2. This two-parter has LONG been my favorite. The music mix, the story (which I suppose to be fair you can’t credit yourself for completely), the vigor in your speech….it just a pleasure to listen to.

    Pretty sure I am going to name a kid after Boudica now…if the wife is game of course.
