Love it!!!

Love this podcast so much! Could you do one on the cannibal Alfred Packer? Learned about him in college from a professor doing heavy research on him and I’d love to hear the story from you!

How is this podcast popular

If you like fake, annoying accents, the word “cult” yelled constantly into your ear, really dumb long-winded ignorant jokes; than this is the podcast for you.

Ya aint got no learnin ,

Stay in your lane

I was very interested in the Doctor Satan episode, and it was promising. Unfortunately, I had to quit listening after about 25 minutes, do to the repeated horrendous attempts at French accent and bad humor. It was distracting, and shockingly unfunny. Once or twice, forgivable, but he went back to it every minute or two. I suspect all of his episodes contain this kind of nonsense. Good luck to you, and accept that you’re not funny, or clever. Stay in your lane bro
