Join us as we peel back the skin of history and exploring the morbid, the macabre, the horrible and sometimes flat-out gross things in the historical record which you might not have heard of before! While attempts are made to try to keep our episodes family-friendly, be forewarned that we often discuss subject matter which may not be suitable for younger listeners. If this is a concern to you, we recommend saving it for when young ears are out of listening range! New episodes are released bi-weekly on Tuesdays! Horrific History Podcast is a program of Kron, an educational 501(c)3 nonprofit headquartered in Ellensburg, WA.

This podcast has good potential. Great research and both hosts have pleasant speaking voices however they both need to stop the constant fake chuckles. It comes off as a nervous habit and is completely distracting for the listener. That one change would make this podcast 100% better.
