Hello and welcome to Body Count, the podcast where we believe history doesn’t repeat itself; it rhymes. Our only rule when we choose a topic: someone, or a lot of someones, died. Host and lazy historian Jessica Manor takes her co-hosts Bethany Skelton, Madison Wright, and Frank Garcia verbally hostage once a week to cover topics ranging from Genghis Khan to Mount St. Helens. We give you the series of events in a narrative fashion and correlate said story with current events. Please check all highbrow academia at the door and buckle up for a wacky adventure through the anals… excuse us, annals of history. Proud member of the MSE Podcast Network.

History Made Entertaining!

History podcasts are sometimes a hard sell as the market for ones that are interesting AND entertaining is a small one. However, Body Count is one of those shows that has both of those great aspects. Jessica is a wonderful host as well. Check it out if you're a history buff and you don't feel like a drawn-out lecture-like lesson but rather a fun, engaging listen.
