286. August 01, 2023 - The month of August is upon us, and it's time for each of us to start asking the big questions the month demands. How are we appreciating the contributions of Octavian Augustus Caesar in our daily lives? When was the last time you cornered Ptolemaic Egyptian rulers with your armies in a empire-making gambit? When was the last time you commissioned a renowned poet to write a legendary piece of work that pauses every few pages to celebrate you? It's August. Act like it.
