Caligula with Mary Beard: Cambridge classicist Mary Beard investigates the life and times of one of Rome's most notorious individuals: Caligula. His rule has come to be synonymous with cruelty, madness, sexual profligacy, and the unrestrained misuse of power. As Beard digs into the origins of his irredeemable reputation, she explores the role of the emperor and its implications for other forms of government.
