Mother Teresa, Dr. Seuss, Gandhi. Is it possible these enlightened historical figures were total scumbags? That's what we try to decide in Scumbags of History, where we pick through the dirty underwear pile of lesser-known facts about some of the famous people society has put on a pedestal. Hosted by confirmed scumbags, comedians Brittany Schmitt and Mateen Stewart, Scumbags Of History is a thoroughly disreputable history lesson on the people you thought you knew from history.

Sweet Jimmy 73 ,

Lazy and doesn’t deliver

Mother Teresa? I was expecting to learn something truly vile or at least mildly terrible but… nope. Just some weird accusations that her orphanages in India weren’t up to Western standards

SUP buddy ,

Holy cow!

These hosts are so poorly informed you can’t take the podcast seriously. There is room for a critique of famous people from history, but not from these two. Hard pass.

Astro_Hanso ,

Honestly shocked at how bad this is.

The title and description grabbed me but 5 minutes in I couldn’t believe how dumb both of these hosts seemed to be. (I’m sorry they may be very nice people but I’m reviewing what they put out) It’s like hearing someone who never read anything in their lives, or paid attention to a single minute of their education speak as if they were an expert.
The amount of total vapid ignorance on display in such a short time has actually saddened me.
Don’t waste your time on this.
