A podcast for the casual fan of history. The Wikipedia reader. The kids who grew up with a dad who watched the same 10 hours of World War II specials on The History Channel. Join Dan Regester, Rob Fox, and Jake Goldman as they tastefully insert themselves into the past. The only thing we don't show is our research.
The Worst Olympics Ever
The 1904 Olympic Games in St. Louis were the worst Olympics ever held. The Marathon involved a purposeful dehydration experiment and a runner who cheated by riding 11 miles in a car, the swimming events were all done in a pond, and people from various third world countries were forced to compete in what the media dubbed the “Savage Olympics”.
The Inept Train Robber Who Became A Must See Corpse
Elmer McCurdy was perhaps the worst outlaw in the Wild West but his dead body became a show stopping attraction in everything from back road carnivals to Hollywood films over the course of a literal half century. Dan, Rob, and Jake talk about the extreme embodiment of success after death.

Pregnant? Stop Being Such A Witch About It
Rob Fox, Dan Regester, and Jake Goldman are joined by Rob’s pregnant wife Courtney to talk about the history of pregnancy, birth control, pain management, and childbirth in the Middle Ages and why if a woman was good at any of that she was a witch and deserved to be burned alive.
The One-Eyed Canadian Berserker Who Liberated A Nazi Controlled City
Dan, Jake, and Rob are joined by Iconoblast's Matt Cooper to talk about Leo Major -- a Canadian scout and sniper who stormed the beaches of Normandy, took hundreds of Nazi POWs, and liberated a Dutch town of 50,000 by himself.
The Original Jaime Lannister
Götz von Berlichingen was a mercenary knight during the end of one of the bloodiest eras in history. He had a metal hand, and also invented a common profanity all of us say every day.
It made me grow
Shining light is an otherwise gloomy world
Absolutely love this podcast! Look forward to it every Tuesday. A fitting successor to Inside TFM and Supps Dawg.
Swatting down the haters: The Iron Dome of history casts
Many think that “getting iron dome” refers to head from someone with a plate in their head or braces.
The real definition refers to a “bukkake” or “gang bang” situation involving a minimum of three men and one woman.
all but one of the men are edged almost to completion. The woman then begins blowing the final dude while the other men yank their cranks and begin to ejaculate on the woman’s head protecting the man who’s getting sunked from the incoming ejaculate. This continues until the final guy ejaculates.
Bonus points if the woman does have a plate in her head though and extra points if the surgery was paid for by the US gub’ment.
I learned abt this on Softcore history which is a pretty chill history and ejaculate podcast.
