    When Teddy Roosevelt Was Shot By An Assassin — Then Gave A Speech

    When Teddy Roosevelt Was Shot By An Assassin — Then Gave A Speech

    On October 14, 1912, Teddy Roosevelt — then running for an unprecedented third term under the banner of the Bull Moose Party — set out to give a speech at the Milwaukee Auditorium in Wisconsin. En route, he crossed paths with a mentally ill saloon owner named John Schrank.

    For some reason, Schrank had become convinced that Roosevelt had assassinated President William McKinley in 1901. And so Schrank waited with the crowd, then fired at Roosevelt with a Colt revolver.

    The Truth About Mary Magdalene

    The Truth About Mary Magdalene

    Most depictions of Mary Magdalene in popular culture characterize her in the same way: as a sex worker. In the musical Jesus Christ Superstar, for example, Mary is critiqued by Judas for her "profession" and later describes how she's quote-unquote "had so many men." Indeed, most people, when asked to describe Mary Magdalene, would probably say she was a sex worker, one who became a symbol of forgiveness and redemption through her relationship with Jesus.

    Osage Murders: The True Story Behind 'Killers Of The Flower Moon'

    Osage Murders: The True Story Behind 'Killers Of The Flower Moon'

    In the 1920s, the hills of northeast Oklahoma were soaked in oil — and blood. Though the oil deposits found in the area had made the Osage Native Americans who owned the land rich, tribe members soon began to die at an alarming rate. And they often died in shocking and violent ways.
    This is the true story of the Osage Indian Murders and Killers of the Flower Moon.

    Jack The Ripper, Episode 6: Who Was The Whitechapel Murderer?

    Jack The Ripper, Episode 6: Who Was The Whitechapel Murderer?

    So who was Jack the Ripper? More than a century later, the killer's identity continues to elude investigators. Some theories are outlandish — like that writer Lewis Carroll or even British royal Prince Albert Victor were behind the heinous crimes. Some theories appear to be supported by DNA — as in the case of Polish barber Aaron Kosminski. Then again, theories like these also assume that Jack the Ripper was a man — and not a murderous local woman.
    Here are some of the most likely — and most interesting — Jack Ripper suspects that have emerged since his reign of terror in 1888. We'll discuss who these suspects are and why investigators believe they could have been the notorious killer.

Good podcast

Short (I like long podcasts) but packed with pertinent details. Good stories. Good storyteller.

Annoying

How can the host of a history podcast not know who Mary Magdalene is or think that Jesus Christ Superstar is a comedy.

Missed Opportunity

Believing the one episode I listened to may have been a poor representation, I tried listening to another. Unfortunately, the hosts entertained themselves with sophomoric giggling and generally behaved like high schoolers trying to impress their friends.

The female host practices a vocal fry that is particularly difficult to listen to, and their mispronunciation of common names and places in history indicates how little work they put into getting to know the subjects they’re discussing.

The duo’s lack of professionalism shows a lack of respect for the audience. Their lack of basic historical knowledge shows a lack of respect for the subject matter.

Given the interesting topics they attempt to cover and the wealth of information avallable to them, these two are missing a great opportunity to produce something good.

If they don't care, why should anyone else waste their time?
