From Zionist zealots and radical Islam to human sacrifice and aboriginal mythology, The MartyrMade Podcast will jump into the transcendent dreams and dark nightmares we've conjured in our search for significance.

    #19 – The Anti-Humans

    History is replete with examples of leaders, nations, and empires who left a trail of blood behind them. But with the Bolshevik takeover of Russia after the First World War, something new crawled from the depths of the earth onto the surface of the world. Never before had a government shown such uninhibited savagery toward its own people, during peacetime, as a matter of policy and in the name of scientific management. After Nazi Germany was defeated in the Second World War, Stalin’s Soviet Union unleashed hell on the devastated nations of Eastern Europe, leaving behind an unmatched record of sadism and brutality.

    #18 – The Madame Butterfly Effect (bonus episode)

    This is a short piece I did for Daniele’s History on Fire podcast. Many of you may have already heard it, but I thought I’d put it on the main feed just in case. It was a fun break from Jim Jones, and nice to be a little less serious for once. Hope you enjoy.

    Huge thanks to the folks behind the Alternative Considerations of Jonestown Project. This podcast wouldn’t have been possible without their indispensable hard work recording, organizing, and transcribing the Peoples Temple tapes and other source materials. For further information about Jonestown, you can’t do better than their website. I did my best to tell the story here as I understand it, but if you ask me the work they’re doing will lead to a fundamental future reassessment of what happened.

    This was originally intended to be part of the previous episode, but I decided to break them up.

    Warning: EXTREME LANGUAGE AND GRAPHIC CONTENT

    The student movement is dead. The Black Panther Party is torn apart by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI. Activism devolves into struggle sessions and terrorism, as the movement for civil rights and social justice is left to “drunks, hypes, freaks, and madmen.” Treason drives Jim Jones off a cliff.

    #15 – God’s Socialist, pt. 5: The Wounded King

    This episode begins where the ’60s end, when the radicalism of that decade crash headlong into the diminishing expectations of 1970s America. The Weather Underground veers off toward its explosive climax. As the idealism of the student movement is shunted into self-help fads and therapy sessions, what remaining energy of the radical left is drained into increasingly bizarre and violent channels.

    I broke this episode up into two parts, so it ends a bit abruptly. The second segment will be available a few hours after this is released.

    #14 - God's Socialist, pt. 4: Sex, Drugs & Revolution

    This episode discusses the beginning of Peoples’ Temple’s slide into radicalism after Jim Jones leads his people to California. We also talk about the development of 1960s radical political movements, and Jonestown conspiracy theories.







    I had to record this episode in a hotel bathroom while on travel for work. The audio quality has some issues at various points, and I will probably try to redo the whole thing at some point in the future. Hopefully, it’s not too bad.

The best and most important history podcast out there

Incredibly well-reserched and brilliantly narrated. The historical accuracy is, as far as I can tell, at a very high level, without any clear biases. However, this is much more than just a "history" podcast, as Darryl draws heavily on various sociological and psychological literatures and often provide deep and thought-provoking analyses of the case at hand in every episode. Despite this, the podcast is very entertaining and easy to listen to. In my mind, this is the best and most important History podcast out there, surpassing even the brilliant Hardcore History podcast by Dan Carlin.

Wonderful

Honestly the best podcast i know. Hopefully there will be more episodes in the future. Keep up the fantastic work Derryl!
