If you were alive from 1945 - 1990, the Cold War was an ever-present reality. We grew up being told that the world could end any minute - and you probably wouldn't know it was coming until it hit. On this series we're going DEEP on the Cold War - why it happened, how it happened and where it left us. As with our other hit podcast series, this show contains heavy doses of bad language, irreverent humour and singalongs.

My favorite history Podcast

In particular, I enjoyed episode 21 on colonization. I never realized how much Communism would appeal to former colonial subjects. The reasons are obvious, but it is hard to understand through an American irrespective. The content is often first rate and analysis spot on. The delivery isn’t perfect, but that is part of the charm and substance is chosen over style. With other broadcasts it’s the other way around. My only complaint is the several Podcasts in a row about Cold War movies. The occasional episode about a book, movie or museum is a nice break, but 4 months of it was too much. The recent episodes on the Korean War are done very well.

Cold War Podcast

If you want to hear the factual reasons for the beginnings of the “Cold War”, Cam and Ray start at the beginning. How WWII and the effects of political powers that changed after the war. If you don’t want to hear any negative comments about the United States, don’t listen to this podcast. However; if you are willing to accept not only the good things and the bad things your country has done or still doing around the globe, chill out and enjoy this podcast.....

Tough to listen to

Didn’t' make it past the second episode.
I like Ray's WW II podcast, a lot. However,In this one he plays an odd second banana character to Cam's blustering delivery. Coupled with some truly odd "value free" view points of Stalin and Churchill made me move along elsewhere for something a little less like a Drunk History episode.
