    This was an excellent podcast. I had trouble understanding why some things he did were excusable but in the end still have to condemn him. When he conquered local Lusitanian tribes in Portugal, declared himself governor of Spain and Gaul, he changed a people and the language. Should he be condemned for that? I don’t know. Spain, France and Portugal are all Romance languages. In that sense he unified a people. In the end it’s all debatable. Thank you for presenting this most interesting and thought provoking podcast.
