    Ep. 100 Jesse James Part 2

    Ep. 100 Jesse James Part 2

    Welcome to part 2 of the Jesse James saga, and episode 100! Ignoring the bonus episode anyways. That was just for fun, but go listen to it anyways. Anyways, we're picking up where we left off in the last episode and covering the more famous part of Jesse's life. The bank robbing, train robbing, stagecoach robbing, and still cousin f*****g, part. He continues to be a garbage person masquerading as a champion of the people, but we don't buy it. And we cover some of the post-death stuff. Enjoy!

    Ep. 99 Jesse James Part 1

    Ep. 99 Jesse James Part 1

    This week we're doing something special and splitting a story in half. And who better for us to cover the week of our 100th episode than Jesse James. Today we'll be covering his life pre-criminal days. Well, technically he was a war criminal during the Civil War, and we definitely talk about that. But pre-bank robberies at least. Anyways, enjoy part 1 of the life of Confederate hero, and honestly super not good person, Jesse James!

    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!

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.
