Hello and welcome to Body Count, the podcast where we believe history doesn’t repeat itself; it rhymes. Our only rule when we choose a topic: someone, or a lot of someones, died. Host and lazy historian Jessica Manor takes her co-hosts Bethany Skelton, Madison Wright, and Frank Garcia verbally hostage once a week to cover topics ranging from Genghis Khan to Mount St. Helens. We give you the series of events in a narrative fashion and correlate said story with current events. Please check all highbrow academia at the door and buckle up for a wacky adventure through the anals… excuse us, annals of history. Proud member of the MSE Podcast Network.

Obsessed!

I am so excitred I found this podcast, I'm a full on history nerd and this podcast checks all of the best boxes. It's funny, it has a casual chat with friends feel, it's morbid but light I guess fun (?) for lack of a better word doesn't take itself too seriously. Highly recommend!

Now that’s Group Dynamic.

One of the most important things about a podcast is chemistry between the hosts. This podcast has got that. In a sea of True Crime podcasts, this one makes murder/ death somehow fun? And that’s worth a listen

Fantastic and full of dark comedy

If you want a podcast that tackles the morbid and strange deaths throughout history with comedy and charm this is for you!
