We say goodbye to original Claud Squad member King Herod himself! On this episode, hosts John Hodgman and Elliott Kalan recap episode eleven of I, Claudius, “A God in Colchester.” We discuss the not so well thought-out plot of Messalinaa, the betrayel and death of Kind Herod and producer Jordan Kauwling’s mom Avis returns to the show. Plus, a special Dispatch from the Empire with actor Gillian Jacobs.

About the show
I, Podius is a twelve episode weekly series in which hosts John Hodgman and Elliott Kalan recap the BBC miniseries I, Claudius, an adaptation of Robert Graves’ I, Claudius and Claudius the God. John’s watched the show before. Elliott’s watching for the first time. The miniseries features an obscenely talented ensemble cast, and is – chock full of sex, backstabbing and murder. This ain’t your daddy’s I, Claudius. Well, actually it is as the series premiered in 1976. But this ain’t your daddy’s I, Claudius-based podcast! Parental discretion advised.
