In this episode we are joined by historian and Cornell PhD student John McTavish to discuss the Wars of the Diadochi, where the Successors of Alexander the Great fought over a period of 40 years to carve apart his empire and found their own kingdoms, giving birth to the Hellenistic World as we know it. We discuss the problems of early Hellenistic sources and chronology, diagnose the causes of the empire's rapid disintegration, and look at the major players and indigenous peoples responses to the power vacuum left by Alexander's death.
