Villains of History

Cst! I couldn’t believe this was you when I found it one day in my long road trip! I know you through Paul Clay. I’m so thrilled you are thriving and do good at this. I love it and now am a follower.
I do have a request, if you haven’t done a segment on President Andrew Jackson could you do one? I think you’ll find him very Villainess! If you have can I know where to pull up that podcast please.
I’m writing a paper on Indian removal from our Midwest during his reign.
Thank you.

Terrible Guest

I saw this podcast and was excited to listen.

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I picked the episode with guest Bill Dawes about the rapist Bikram Choudhury. Within the first 7 minutes, Dawes is making it clear that he doesn’t understand what sexual harassment is, he says that powerful men have sex with their followers (host has to correct that in this case Bikram raped his followers), and he has denigrated fat people by saying that thin people earn their thinness. You gotta love a little fat phobia getting sprinkled in for literally no reason.

Truly grating to hear, don’t waste your time. While the host seems to understand the issues with all of the above, she shouldn’t be giving people like this a platform. Disappointing.
