Hey Everyone,

It’s been a long time! Before my life was swallowed by the podcast of my novel Predestination and Other Games of Chance, I recorded quite a bit for Reprobates Hour. So now, to kick off part 2 of Season 3, Richard Carrier returns to talk about science in the ancient world. We discuss the works and missteps of Rodney Stark and his theory of the scientific revolution, we talk about the amazing and usually forgotten scientific and technological discoveries and innovations in the ancient world, and have a lot of fun along the way. In this first of three episodes, we talk about science in the Greek world. Next week, we talk about the Roman world. Hope you enjoy!

The Reprobates are back in town — spread the word!


  1. To second the words of Mary Laura above, where is the download button? There doesn’t seem to be a way to access pt. 1 of the Carrier interview (got the second one ok, and thank you). If you click the title it just refreshes the same page (as far as I can tell). I tried getting it few months ago and came back today to see if it had been fixed, but alas….a lass by the name of Mary has asked a question all that time ago and it remains unanswered. I look forward to popping in some time and clicking the carrier pt.1 without disappointment.

    Sounds like you’re very busy…you’ll get ’round to it eventually.
