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 Gods Must Be Horny

Never Let The Truth Get In The Way Of A Good Disney Movie
Jared Borislow joins Dan Regester and Rob Fox to talk about the true and horrifying story of real Pocahontas compared to her animated Disney counterpart.
Field Of Nightmares
The most detestable baseball team in history isn’t the Chicago Black Sox or the Houston Astros. It’s the 1911 Wyoming Penitentiary All-Stars, a baseball team made up of rapists and murderers who were told every time they won a game they would get years off their sentences, or get their death penalties commuted, so long as they made the state officials gambling on them money.
Drinking And Driving Killed JFK... Kind Of
Listen in as we breakdown the tale of drunken secret service agents, their night before the JFK assassination, and how no one thought it was that big of a deal except for one wet blanket.
The Bisexual STD-Riddled Rockstar Poet
Lord Byron was a rockstar poet considered to be the first modern celebrity. He gallivanted around the Mediterranean sleeping with any person that crossed his path, drank out of monk skulls, and owned his own zoo of animals.
Tweens Are Not to Be Trusted
The Salem Witch Trials were pretty much entirely fueled by bored tweens pretending to be possessed by innocent old ladies and poor people.

3AM Living Room History + Vintage TFM Nostalgia
I was more of a RogerDorn fan back in ‘12 but thanks to this show I’ve gone full turncoat to Team BaconTFM.
Played the show for my dog
I left the show on for my dog for hours while I was at work and now he’s full of weird, obscure and semi-accurate history facts.
