Billy Joel, History, and Pop Culture

I have been remiss is writing a review! This is one of my favorite podcasts. Dan and Henry are great hosts and provide a lot of in-depth information on all the references in We Didn’t Start the Fire. It’s informative and funny and always a delight! Definitely worth your time hearing Dan say “bro” and Henry make dad jokes while learning about history and pop culture

Refreshing and informative!

Love that these two crazy kids are doing something different. In a podcast realm full of the same stories being rehashed over and over again, Dan & Henry are putting out something original, unique, and interesting, not to mention oodles of fun. You can't go wrong with Billy Joel anyway, so what have you got to lose? Go listen!

Great history podcast with a pop culture twist

Love the dynamic between the two hosts. The show takes the song “We Didn’t Start the Fire” and dives into the real-world history behind the lyrics of the song. Great concept, great show. Keep it up!
