Elagabalus (with Kit Heyam)

Thinking about the Roman Empire? If you weren’t before, you are now! Friend of the podcast Dr. Kit Heyam is back to discuss the fascinating life of ancient Roman emperor Elagabalus (aka Heliogabalus). Elagabalus’s reign was short, and odd, and the way it was written about (by haters) leaves many questions about their queer and trans identity. Kit is here to compassionately explore Elagabalus’s life and story.
