If you were alive from 1945 - 1990, the Cold War was an ever-present reality. We grew up being told that the world could end any minute - and you probably wouldn't know it was coming until it hit. On this series we're going DEEP on the Cold War - why it happened, how it happened and where it left us. As with our other hit podcast series, this show contains heavy doses of bad language, irreverent humour and singalongs.

Better than caffeine and coke and long as your okay with coworkers thinking you might be a communist

It is late on a Wednesday night and I have to stay awake to go to work at midnight ( not my usual routine). How do I stay awake? TV? No I'll just fall asleep on the couch. Read a book? No way. Caffeine? Nope too tired to calculate the exact dosage and timing to keep me awake to work but then let me sleep afterwards. Illicit substances? Probably not the time to suddenly decide to dabble.....
Ray & Cam are the perfect solution! These gentlemen are the perfect balance of entertainment education and Inappropriate comedy! Cam the Alpha takes the lead with his exhaustive research and painstakingly taken notes while Ray the quiet American adds appropriate gravitas to the proceedings with giggling and insinuated strip teases. There is music, jokes, light banter but more than all of this there is serious history being shared in a relatable and entertaining way. I had no idea how much I didn't not know... excellent work once again gentleman, keep it up!
I did get some weird looks the next day from my coworkers. Probably from using the names of the various communist leaders mentioned as fake customers to complete system testing for my job, but hey I used the inspiration I had at hand.

Love your work as always guys

Turn everything else off

After listening to an informative, fact based cold war podcast I was looking for deeper analysis. Hello Cam & Ray!! Having come across this in 2019 I have had a lot of catching up to do. Doing a podcast a day (at normal speed) has made me laugh to the point I had to pull over.
Listening to these guys, well mostly Cam, has been extremely enlightening. I had completely forgotten about Stalins musical exploits. The Yalta confernce.... no detail was missed over what was probably 612.7 hours of podcasting gold. No stone was left unturned including a double podcast on the political and social implications of the serviette rings at the first dinner, the in-depth discussion on the interior colour scheme of the plenary session meeting room and not play back Cams awesome Russian, American and English accents.
Seriously this is worth the paltry investment.
If you don’t know what part Count Dracula, a lemon tree and Chucky D played in rolling out the Cold War sign up now..
Sorry the rating only goes up to 5.

STOP SCROLLING AND LISTEN TO THIS!!!

Ever wonder why things are the way they are? What have world leaders been up to for the last hundred years?

Cam and Ray have made me laugh and made me think about the motivations that shaped 20th Century history. With copious research and minute detail juxtaposed with a surprising number of dick jokes you’ll be glad you took my advice and gave it a listen!

Favourite podcast ever.
