It’s history with attitude, and the American story with an edge. We’re looking at those events and people that change history through the power of technology and bigger than life dreams. True stories about real people; not glamorized or sanitized to fit an alternative argument...just the straight dope. No foolin’. No sweater-vested, bowtie wearin’, bifocal sportin’ professor type. Just me and my bike, and American tales right off the road. Sometimes from the “blacktop”, and sometimes from the “road house”, but always as straight and true as the chrome and steel I ride. Always as “down home” as denim and leather.

Interesting history, but the delivery is driving me slightly batty
It’s interesting storytelling of cool moments in history. I’m enjoying the info. The downside is the delivery of the stories. The presenter has an odd cadence when he’s speaking and I’m finding it distracting.
History with an Edge
Loved each episode. Stan does an amazing job. History with passion.
Stan has a unique and fun way of presenting historical material. I was excited to see this podcast. We homeschool our children and have used Stan’s Tv series to supplement our history lessons I honestly believe they learned and remembered more from the show than the text. Thank you for starting this podcast the wright brothers story was spot on! Look forward to the Yeager story hopefully one day!
