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.

Some episodes and guests are better than others. Overall it’s a really enjoyable and thought provoking podcast. Robert Evans has a great voice for podcasts. And I like Sophie’s interjections and shut downs. 🙌🏼❤️

Podcast is trash

Recent episodes are about no name jokes that are just racist internet trolls

Great history podcast for lefties

There are quite a few left leaning political opinions shared, but I agree with most of them.

Robert Evans (the host) cares about accuracy and he does his homework. Not only that, but he’s a world traveler with a lot of interesting cultural experience.

Hope to see y’all on tour sometime on the East coast!
