Great comedy and relevant content

I love this podcast enough to download Apple podcasts just so I can leave a review, because I listen on Spotify. If you’re looking for a more light hearted and comedic take on relevant historical events this is your podcast!

EAG444 ,

Fantastic!

Hilarious and interesting podcast!

Shan3d ,

Surprisingly enjoyable

I’m only reviewing because they begged. Seriously, a great mix of information and humor. Never thought historical disasters could be so entertaining. Thanks?
