A Wonderful Anxiety Outlet!!!

As weird as it may sound, this podcast has provided me with a new way to reconcile random anxiety that pops up! Whether it’s directing it at fictional characters/situations or historical events, Rebecca’s knack for catastrophizing in inconsequential ways has shown me I can do the same. Listening to her and her friends do this is also just HILARIOUS and I love it. Oh, and i learn some historical facts in the process! I rarely write reviews but I love this show and love that it’s weekly. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

KEEP IT UP! :)

If it’s “comedy,” be funny, not ignorant.

Been listening since the first episode, but I finally had to call it quits. This podcast is shockingly ignorant. To counteract that, the host has started warning listeners, “Remember, we’re comedians, not historians!” This would mean something if the podcast was then funny... but it’s not that either. You can’t make broad generalizations and outraged claims of superiority based on a complete misunderstanding of historical context and just call it comedy so you’re not critiqued on your history. Amateur history coupled with comedy about death CAN be done well—see the “My Favorite Murder” podcast. It’s just not done well here.
