offended

I love history. Love reading books on various subjects and I subscribe to other history podcasts. During the podcast of Hedy Lamaar one of the podcasters said some seriously stupid and offensive comments that made me so angry that I stopped listening to the Hedy Lamaar podcast and unsubscribed. I will never listen to a podcast from History Dweebs again.

Sorry guys. But this is bad.

I really wanted to like this. I did. This is a fun sounding podcast on interesting subjects that consists of a panel reading different essays with lots of back and forth discussions.

The panel consists of several knowledgeable folks, and one guy who, for some reason unknown, chooses to affect an awful southern accent and calls himself the Colonel. His job is apparently comic relief, which on this podcast consists of telling terrible jokes and then telling stories which invariably end in outright lies that are supposed to be funny.

Ultimately, its the jokes that buy this thing a single star. For whatever reason, the panel chooses to repeatedly interrupt each other with "humorous" interjections. For example, during the episode about freak shows, we are told that two midgets were married and went on a honeymoon. One person jumps in with "Did they ship FedEx?" HA! I know, right? Or when we are told that there are only a few remaining freak shows in the US, the Colonel interjects in his terrible drawl "And we call these Wal-Marts." WHOA NELLY!

I'm sure when its a bunch of history dweebs sitting around a table, they're hilarious. But they make listening unbearable. Maybe I'm missing the humor. But I don't think so.

Great show

My girlfriend introduced me to their Facebook page and I have loved the show ever since. The banter between the pannel is great and they touoch on topics not covered by many history books. I have listend to every show and will continue to do so until they stop making these podcasts.
