nonsense! (which I like)
The mad (and very funny, if somewhat salty) ramblings of the creator of the blog Dictator of the Week, which should be read by everyone, ever, unless they are humorless nitwits. The podcasts, being recorded conversations, don't necessarily stay on task as well as the blog (and the blog doesn't either: cope, already), but that is not their aim, and they are still a good time. If you listen closely, you may learn something wildly innacurate about history. So shut up. In the words of the DotW.
Weekly Dictator is wonderful. Case closed. It's laid back, and has a great dynamic. While there are some minor audio issues, the podcast is delightful across the board. It's a nice balance of facts and jokes, and is improving every week. <3 Great show. <3
I heard about this show from Professor Blastoff and have been listening to them in tandem, it's great so funny, and I never thought I could learn so many interesting things about history.
