There’s a reason the History Channel has produced hundreds of documentaries about Hitler but only a few about Dwight D. Eisenhower. Bad guys (and gals) are eternally fascinating. Behind the Bastards dives in past the Cliffs Notes of the worst humans in history and exposes the bizarre realities of their lives. Listeners will learn about the young adult novels that helped Hitler form his monstrous ideology, the founder of Blackwater’s insane quest to build his own Air Force, the bizarre lives of the sons and daughters of dictators and Saddam Hussein’s side career as a trashy romance novelist.

Robert Evans is an absolute gem

Behind the bastards is superemely the ‘history podcast with a twist’ that does it best. Evans and his guests walk that fine line between comedy and seriousness with some serious grace. Besides, the topics he brings up are definitely inportant elements of American and world history, and knowing them in depth should be part of anyone’s education if I had my way.
