Fun and educational podcast

I happened upon this podcast as I was on a search for knowledge on the Bombing of Dresden. I really enjoyed the podcast and subscribed. And I have not been disappointed.

What I’d would really love would be a podcast on the origin of “Fake News”. I know Fake News is not what people call fake news today. But I’d love to know the origins. My guess, at least from what I’ve read, is that it’s pretty complicated.

Anyway, love the podcast and can’t wait for the next episode to hit.

perpetuating a myth

I was looking for short podcasts to fill in between longer forms and I wanted to like this. His style is a little off-putting for me; I prefer a more laid-back, less frenetic style, but that is a personal issue. My main beef is in one of the first episodes I listened to about Captain Cook not being the first European to discover Australia. Near the end he mentioned Cook being killed and eaten by cannibals in Hawaii. Umm, I was not familiar with cannibalism in Hawaii and a brief google search showed little to no evidence that there was any or that Cook had been eaten. It seems that Professor Buzzkill, in busting one myth, perpetuated another. Can I trust the rest of what he says?
