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.

Bored at work. ,

Good podcast but...

The host’s voice can get very annoying at times. Reminds me of the son from Bob’s Burgers.

Grifters galore

I like this guy. He mispronounces lots of words and has a vague understanding on history and this pod cast has plenty of editing issues. I don’t mean that as negative commentary - it adds to the fun of this pod cast. Robert is funny and the guests definitely add to the narrative well. The format and content of this podcast really is terrific.
