    Ep. 98 Takeda Shingen

    Ep. 98 Takeda Shingen

    Join us, dear listeners, as we travel back to Japan to talk about a guy some of you may recognize from a previous episode, Takeda Shingen. This dude had a pretty dope life. Just a constant back and forth from battling other samurai and kicking ass, to chilling in his f**k mansion and plowing anybody who was into it. He did get kind of a mediocre death, but hey, the rest of his life was still awesome. Enjoy!

    Ep. 97 "Stagecoach" Mary Fields

    Ep. 97 "Stagecoach" Mary Fields

    I'm gonna tip our hand here a little bit and let you know upfront, this episode doesn't have a twist or another shoe dropping. It's just good old fun all the way through. Stagecoach Mary lived a really dope life on the frontier as basically an anomaly of the old west. She was pretty damn awesome, and with the exception of one douchebag bishop who never even met her, I couldn't find anybody that actively disliked her. Even people she punched in the face loved her. Enjoy!

    Ep. 96 Harvey "Kid Curry" Logan

    Ep. 96 Harvey "Kid Curry" Logan

    Today we're covering fame adjacent outlaw, Harvey Logan AKA Kid Curry. Some say he was a murderous psycho, some that he was the victim of circumstance. It's probably somewhere in the middle where he got dealt a bum hand and decided he really loved murdering and stealing after a little while. Also we're still not absolutely certain if he died when the authorities claimed, or many years later while hiding out. Either way, dude had a crazy life. Enjoy!

    Ep. 95 Agrippina the Younger

    Ep. 95 Agrippina the Younger

    Today, dear listeners, we have a very well, interesting, person's story to share. Agrippina the Younger of Rome. She was related to several people you should recognize, and if you don't, well then public school failed you. In either case, this crazy broad caused a lot of death, and apparently the later years of her life were sponsored by Acme. Also special mention for the goofiest failed assassination I've ever heard. Enjoy!

    Ep. 94 William Barker

    Ep. 94 William Barker

    To all our friends up north in America's hat, Canada, don't worry, we haven't forgotten about you. In fact, today's episode is about one of your soldiers, William Barker. Started flying planes in World War 1 and realized very quickly that he loved shooting other planes and blowing stuff up. He was a crazy good pilot and earned a ton of awards. Sure, his story ends tragically. But he also has one of my favorite Christmas stories, so I'll call it a win. Enjoy!

    Ep. 93 Amelia Dyer

    Ep. 93 Amelia Dyer

    Today, dear listeners, we're going to take you to Victorian era England to talk about notorious baby farmer and serial killer, Amelia Dyer. She got started in the baby farming business for the money, and soon ramped up her work for the love of the game. And yes, baby farming is exactly as f****d up as the name would imply. While the exact number of Dyer's victims is unknown, it's entirely possible that she was the most prolific serial killer of all time, or at least in England. Enjoy!

Learning English

Great podcast I am teaching myself English by listening to it all the way from Michigan. My favorite episode so far is Matt Urban.

Great

Awesome show! Can’t believe it isn’t more popular!
EDIT: Wasn’t trying to make you feel bad about not having a lot of listeners. 😂

A must listen

If you like history, these guys are for you....
If you like outrageous stories, these guys are for you...
If you love the bluntness of a standup comedian telling you of sometimes horrible people in a way that brings you pure joy...LISTEN.

In summary, you need to be subscribing to this. Will forever be one of my favorites.
