    Episode 107: Celebrity Oscars Mayhem

    Episode 107: Celebrity Oscars Mayhem

    Not everyone looks good on a horse, but today’s hero did. Todays hero also made a scene at the Oscars, ended up with only one lung, and was named after a dog, so maybe the horse thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

    This week’s hero has the sort of twisted ingenuity one needs in order to look at a pigeon and think, "I bet that bird could steer a rocket."

    Episode 105: Aristotle

    Episode 105: Aristotle

    It’s rare for one person to write foundational texts on topics as diverse as biology, meteorology, philosophy, and politics. It’s also rare for a man to be ridden like a pony so hard that it permanently changes the theology of the Catholic church, but todays hero is full of surprises.

The best!!

Audrey and Elliot are not only hilarious but are incredible advocates and are always making sure to include all sides of the story. I’m actually interviewing them for my research paper too as they inspired me to write about the glorification or historical figures! They are amazing, kind and unbelievably entertaining. Love these guys.

Terrible comedy and poor history

After listening to this podcast, I felt nothing but cringe. This is supposedly is a comedy/history podcast but the comedy is terrible while the history needs to be better research. I love learning about history in a fun way, but this podcast didn’t get me to crake a smile or teach me something new. Their episode on Marie Antoinette, for example, had so many mistakes. I wounded what research did the host do for the episode. If I’m not laughing or I can correct the many mistakes they make by a simple google search, then you know you have a bad podcast. There are better history podcasts out there that are a lot more entertaining and informative then this one.
