10/10 would review again.

This podcast hit the spot for me, because of the interesting subjects and deep dives into history. Thanks for the opportunity, quarantine. The only positive thing.

Peithir ,

Amazing podcast!

This podcast is amazing! Hilarious and informational. It really helped me through quarantine. I’d highly recommend if you want to know some silly or interesting history! Great for leaning people to do research on. Two hilarious ladies that make you laugh!

Rachel LZ ,

So great!

Hey I just found you guys and I love your show so much! It is so fun, funny, and fascinating (alliteration) to learn about crazy weird history while listening to you two banter! I have to tell my friend about you guys, since he is probably the only other person I know that loves to learn interesting and obscure history as much as I do! History nerds unite! I also LOVE that you guys reference some of my other loves like The Office! I think we would be friends if we knew each other. xD Anyways... I’m excited to work my way through all your episodes! Keep up the great and hilarious work!
