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.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Less Sophie and Anderson talk would be best

Boring AF

Titles of podcasts sound interesting but not impressed with the actual podcast sorry. Very unfortunately the live show is really horrible audio and unable to hear the audience’s comments, making it painful to listen to and hard to follow what is being discussed and why all the laughter...??? Annoying. Couldn’t make it past 5 minutes of one episode. 2 stars for interesting-sounding titles.

Couldn’t listen to more than 5 minutes

I started listening to the first episode about Duterte and couldn’t believe how the hosts were constantly cracking jokes around the subject of the ongoing genocide of poor people in the Philippines. They should have been treating it with the seriousness it deserves, or not cover the topic at all.
