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.

Love the pod but

If I have to hear Monticello mispronounced one more time I’m going to lose it

Pseudo intellectual ranting

A fairly intelligent, half-informed progressive tells you his thoughts while surrounded by his less-educated fawning groupies. Often funny, but built on unquestioned beliefs like Communism was never a historical threat and that Jews are white oppressors. Pretty good when he’s not butchering anything political or historic with his Reddit-level hot takes.

An otherwise fine podcast with meh guests

Been a fan of Robert all the way back to the Cracked days and I enjoy the show but it’s very hit or miss when it comes to guests. Some of the guests are fine (swaim, loftus, Margaret, Tom Reitman, and a few others) but OMG some of the guests add nothing to the show, quite the opposite.
