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.

Very informative and well researched

I have learned so incredibly much about awful people and institutions from this podcast. From the horrific roots of American policing to the devastating impact of the satanic panic. Especially the episodes about historical insurrections were chilling, considering the similarities with our days.

My only objection is that the folks on this podcast are laughing out loud about stuff, while I wonder what the joke is or why it is funny - I guess I just have a preference for different humor, but it can be a bit annoying sometimes.

Doesn't let his guests speak

Granted, I only listened to the episodes about Benjamin Netanyahu. But how the hell can you have a guest on for two hour-long episodes AND NOT LET HER SPEAK. Would've loved to actually hear the analysis of your wonderful guest rather than the bland historical overview you googled together. Won't give the other episodes a try.

Informative and entertaining

Being European i am more a fan of the episodes about historical figures as compared to those about american political issues. All of them are very informative, entertaining and (as far possible regarding topics) objective.
