Julius Caesar and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day: The Show Notes

Become a Patron!

Sorry, we just absolutely could not help ourselves…

Oh and here’s the Gimp outfit. (It’s actually in Pulp Fiction, not in American Horror Story like we said).

We couldn’t have written this episode without Barry Strauss’s excellent book, The Death of Caesar.

Also important to this episode were:

Stacy Schiff’s Cleopatra: A Life

Adrian Goldsworthy’s Caesar: Life of a Colossus

Patricia Southern’s Julius Caesar: A Life

Jack Johnson’s Ambition without Boundaries: How Julius Caesar’s Thirst for Conquest Shaped the Ancient World, and Impacted the Modern One

Plus a shout-out to our ancient sources:

Plutarch’s Parallel Lives (Bernadotte Perrin translation):

Life of Caesar
Life of Cicero

Suetonius’ Twelve Caesars: Life of Caesar (J.C. Rolfe translation)

Cassius Dio’s Roman History (Earnest Cary translation)

…And Nicolaus of Damascus’ Life of Augustus (C.M. Hall translation).
