Customer Reviews

Enjoying it but...

I really enjoy the podcast but Allegra... not only is she too young to get half the stuff on the podcast, she’s also horribly nonsensical in her comments and laughs at nothing. She does contribute for the newer stuff but perhaps for items that were relevant before she was cognizant, bring someone else?


this podcast would be better without allegra.

Fun Histories From Fun People

I think it’s fair to say that we’re inundated by history/knowledge podcasts nowadays. What makes History of Fun standout personally is how to-the-point yet casual the topics are. I feel like i’m learning while chatting with good friends. Keep it up!!!
