Always super informative and just plain fun. Love listening to you guys and the kazoo is just the cherry on top! Need more! *froths at mouth dramatically*

The last kazoo was yellow!

If you have been searching for a podcast that covers all the delicious demise of history's greatest and notable leaders, you are in for a treat with these guys. Started off with episode 3 where we focus on gingers being bullied. That alone should persuade you into giving it a go. Subscribe and listen now!
