Favorite podcast

I came across this podcast during COVID, and I’m so happy I did. This has become my absolute favorite podcast, it’s educational and funny! As much as I loved history classes, I wish they were all taught like this podcast, I probably would remember things better then.

Concerned for Chris ,

She is Yoko

Overall, I do enjoy the show. But I recently listened to the "what broke up the Beatles" episode and the host was very supportive of Yoko. Then I realized she is Yoko. Her husband was having fun in his band and then they started dating, she went to one show, and he was out of the band. And I don't think this was a one-off. Whenever Chris has an opinion, if it disagrees with the ladies, they disregard it. But masculinity is always on the board. Chris, watch out man.

Fun and Frightening

Perfect combo of learning about history and sharing good laugh. Thanks for the welcome distraction.
You mentioned Absinthe in Las Vegas. All time favorite show ever. Hilarious!
