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.

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.

Pole e rising (Divisive or a Vegas hard-on?)

I really enjoy the idiots who stumble upon any of Cam & Rays stellar work and blast off an offended review ... it would be like old Sister Rufina switching over from ‘Songs of Praise’ to ‘The Paul Hogan Show’ and being offended by Hoges and Strop. Come to think of it Cam is a bit like Hoges and Ray like Strop. Hoges has an easy confidence and fearlessly pokes sacred cows, Strop was obviously Australia’s first Bubble Boy. If you like history, or just thinking, and want someone else to do the reading (I know, they only read books, a freaking academic travesty) listen to these guys. Fairly often people will wonder why you are laughing so hard. Awesome stuff, keep up the great work boys.
