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 a co-host 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 annals of history. Member of the Big Heads Media Network.
