Well what can I say. Three shows in, and the boys are smashing it again. Can’t wait for the rest to come out, and make my new year commute that much more entertaining/hilarious/quicker. Now if I only had a white shirt without chicken sauce all over it.....
Incredible effort once again
Where else would you start a history on the renaissance other than the last high point of civilisation, with Diocletian? For most people, the answer would be at least 500 years later, if not the better part of 1000 years later, but going deep and hard, down many a twisted path is the Ray and Cam style.
Once again we get the dick jokes, the pointed jibes at those of a Christian faith who took to destroying information with a level of active neglect that only has to be seen to be believed. Prepare for an entertaining ride, which will both inform, disgust, delight and repulse you, sometimes within the one joke. And then you get to listen to the giggles.
Come for the history, stay for the dick jokes. While I thought I was full bottle on the Renaissance after watching the Da Vinci code I'm surprised to find a few holes in my knowledge. Not for long c**t! Cam and Ray are here to fix that. A few episodes in and the usual production values I'm accustom to from there extensive back catalogue is present. A great topic for the fellas to sink their teeth into, it should provide material for the next decade or two at the usual pace. Definitely worth the monthly subscription. Together with their other podcasts I'm tipping more money into the Cam and Ray machine then Netflix each month. Every time my girlfriend asks about it I'm quick to point out that the documentaries on Netflix don't have a single gay joke and hosts almost never talk about their sexual tension between them. I've never seen a host on Netflix look deep into the camera and say something to the effect of "Listen, let's just push pause on this lost roman treasure buried for centuries under the water for a minute. I want to talk about the importance of cunningness". It just doesn't happen, that's why you should subscribe today. That sort of talk probably works better on an audio only platform anyway. I'm sure if Cam was bringing that sort of talk to his live Facebook feed id have further questions from the other half. Look, it's worth the money, there top blokes that put the hard yards in. DBAC. Get around it.
