Amazing that Timesitheus was born in 190 BC and yet was still alive to mentor Gordian III in the 3rd Century AD! (I did a double take when I heard Mike misspeak that birth year...)

Great show guys! As a student of languages (Spanish and Portuguese) and linguistics, I really enjoyed hearing some of the take on Portuguese that the book discussed. Did it talk about the claim some have the Brazilian Portuguese is a relatively highly diglossic language? -- That is, the written and spoken forms are significantly more divergent than in most other languages. Thanks for the link for the book; it sounds like a fascinating read.
