Informative and funny!

My husband and I love history and this podcast is a great one, in several unique ways. I really enjoy the setup, where one of the guys presents a historical figure who is “unsung,” and they discuss it together. Each episode is long enough that I feel like I learn something and they take up good chunks of road trip drive time. I also love the songs they write at the end...they’ve all been really good! I’m waiting for the album :)

So unique and creative

These guys are super! Not only do they thoroughly present the stories of each of these heroes, but they also make amazing songs about them! Thoroughly impressed!

Fun stuff

This idea is such a great idea! Love the charisma between the guys, and I always get a laugh when listening. Also, the songs at the end are very enjoyable. Sometimes I come back just to listen to the songs! These guys are talented for sure.
