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.

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.

Baby Boomers must listen

Having been born in 1952 I landed right in the start of the Cold War that my father thought he had prevented by fighting in WW2. But America and USSR had different ideas. It's hard not to be sympathetic to Stalin's paranoia about Germany and the motives of the allies in keeping Russia weak. This was the time that USA and USSR became world leaders because everybody else was stuffed and worn out. The podcast is excellent and should be complete in about 2024 when President Trump leaves office. Thanks for filling my head with more and deeper resentment.
