More please sirs!

Totally entertaining & absorbing, filled with strange & fascinating facts. Have listened to every episode at least twice. Great storytelling by engaging, witty hosts. Looking forward to the next series!

Erudite, humorous and entertaining

Author, historian and all-round funny guy David Hunt brings his two successful books to podcast format, exploring the quirky and sometimes unseemly side of early Australian history. This is definitely not what you learned at school — but it’s laugh-our-loud funny, thoroughly researched and full of charm.

Enlightenment into our very interesting past

What an entertaining history, I have so much more knowledge of how this great place started and the rebel’s who tried better it, even if it also helped them out in the process. I have dreams of distilling my own gin, this show has given me so many ideas on names.
I can’t wait for the next episodes
