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.

History at a 3rd grade level
If your kid needs a quick refresher this is the podcast you need. Otherwise, it’s pretty useless as far as history goes. America-centric - “make America great again” stuff. More folktale then actual history. Based on the ads for survival MREs I’m not surprised. The dumbing down of ‘Murica continues. If you want actual well told in-depth history try American History Tellers.
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.
