Strider Wilson hosts a podcast delving into history through the perspective of a mature erudite bro. He was one unit away from a history minor at U.C. San Diego, but he does’t let that stop him from examining what it would have been like to be a bro posted up on Bunker Hill or uncovering what the chillest aspect of surrealist art is. Buckle up because Strider will not only venture into humanity's shared past. He will venture within himself. Asking real questions such as, “exactly how tight are pirates,” or “what if he stayed that extra semester in school,” “would my life have been danker?” Strider firmly believes that history is tight because we all should for sure blaze our own trails… but in what direction?

    Crows Are Gnarly

    Crows Are Gnarly

    Everyone knows eagles, falcons and hawks are tight. Everyone knows that parrots are smart. And if you've ever been outside in your life you know that crows are a nuisance. However, after one vivid dream and many years of being annoyed by crows in the valet lot at work Strider decided it was ripe time to find out more about these morbid pests of the sky. Maybe they aren't un-chill? maybe they're just chilling in their own way? What's the deal with dreams?

    1921

    Strider looks back a century's time to see what was going down? What was 2021 the year of? What will 2021 be the year of? Strider is thinking it's gonna be aliens dude? We need something to unite us. Hopefully it's chill aliens that can teach us how to be legit. If 2020, and the first week of 2021 are any indicator... seems anything could go down.

    The Credenza The Dankest Decor

    Strider had no idea what a credenza was before he met his dank GF. One could say he has been in a love triangle ever since. The credenza, thought by most to be a simple corridor adornment is the center piece of Strider and his dank GF's abode. Listen and learn all about the Dank Denza and similar pieces we so often identify incorrectly.

    History Of Fantasy Football

    A lot of people just won their leagues this week. A lot more didn't. Strider is a constituent of the latter. Leaving all emotion and hard feelings out of it, Strider shares his research on the medium of camaraderie and competition that we all love and hate some much.

    History Of Big Dog T's

    You know you've seen these graphic T's being sported by a dude in jean shorts on vacation standing next to his son who is sunburnt wearing the same T. Strider is for sure fired up that people are on vacation, but what is it about these shirts? Why were they such a hit? Where did they come from? Do people still wear them? What is going on!?

    When you're posted up watching a dank movie like Braveheart or Kingdom Of Heaven the director's roadshow or any period piece really... the executioner is always a dude who looks like a former offensive lineman who maybe played D-2 college ball wearing a hood with a huge axe. In this episode Strider searches for a better understanding of the person not the position by removing the veil to find out a little more about the men behind the mask. If they even wore them at all...
