Check out the touchstone The History Of Rome podcast by Mike Duncan. It’s great and covers the origins and rise of the empire accessibly and in detail.

His "The Storm Before the Storm" (https://www.amazon.com/Storm-Before-Beginning-Roman-Republic...) is a great read as well. I was genuinely saddened when I finished it.
