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.

I’ve experienced something along this line … economic sanction-esque and voiolations of my fourth amendment right. I live in Las Vegas. I’ve been consolidating evidence to prove my case for over three years. Thank you for broadcasting this episode.. it’s so important.
I’m 44 years old and owned two businesses that serve the local community.

Guillermo Tomas ,

Fantastic show!

Robert, the NSA Orders Department loves the show. Keep up the great work! Sophie - kisses from the NSA alpacas and A-Team+. Cheers.

For a good time, call CIA’s OGC Litigation Division - 703-874-3118. It’s a hoot.

Say hello from the NSA Orders Department. Haha. They love us.
