The History of Rome

It's important to know history. This history of Rome, in particular, is worth studying because it forms the backdrop for Western civilization even to the present day, and because it was the context in which the events of the New Testament and the early Church took place.

Therefore, I would like to recommend The History of Rome podcast, a weekly podcast tracing the history of the Roman Empire, beginning with Aeneas's arrival in Italy and ending (someday) with the exile of Romulus Augustulus, last Emperor of the Western Roman Empire. About 20 or 25 minutes each, these studies give a broad view of Roman history while at the same time providing details vivid enough to remember after only one listen.
