I look forward to each episode and have heard them all. Yes, some are better than others, but from the witty puns to the riveting stories, I would highly recommend this podcast.

Hard to follow banter

by memelonie on Feb 10, 2019
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I have tried for a period to listen and I have gotten through some episodes. I like the topics and content. The issue is that it’s hard to follow the story from beginning to end, and catch the facts. I find myself rewinding constantly. I’d compare it to listening to a wacky FM morning radio show in the 90s. Three guys with an interesting topic that’s lost in banter. Or is it two? Too bad I really want to listen.

Meandering and boring. Filled with self-righteous virtue signalling

I get it. You’re better than everyone because you’re woke white men liberals. Everything in history is problematic. White people are evil. Colonialism is evil. Men are evil. This is so painful to listen to and that’s when they actually get to the topic. Which takes around twenty minutes. Do not waste your time.

Just get Stuff You Missed In History Class

This podcast is Stuff You Missed in History Class Lite. Now with dudes who’s “banter” is what the 10 second skip button was made for. I love Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know but this was so disappointing.

Another great one

Great show from the howstuffworks crew specifically Robert & Joe...Whoever whinges about tangents in a podcast review....do you understand podcasts? Like you must be new to podcast culture or just tres uncool to make this irrelevant nitpick.Anyway great range of topics, they always try to be not overly western-centric which is dope.

Love these guys!

Napoleon Keeps Happening

by Game Theorem on Feb 01, 2019
Rating: ★★★★★

When Ridiculous History first launched, we were cautious and worried it may be a carbon copy of Stuff You Missed in History Class, but it turned out to be its own thing. The show provides information on pieces of history that are usually really obscure and amusing. Ben and Noel provide some nice discussion and make the obscure strangely relatable. Some of the things we've learned are really interesting, like the highest-paid chariot racer and Clara the hippo, among many other interesting things. Napoleon comes up a lot.

Great fun

The content is interesting and unique but there is just a bit too much banter. I find myself choosing this podcast last or skipping forward a few minutes to get to the actual information. You guys are funny but we’re here to learn!

Ben, Noel, and Casey seem as if they’re crackin a cold one w the bros and just tell interested stories about things you never asked about. and a whole bunch of random facts/historical asides and just other bafoonery things they get into

These idiots are annoying

by Suzie47 on Dec 30, 2018

I listened to this for the first and last time. These two idiots take an interesting story and constantly interrupt it with their lame attempts on trying to be funny. Can’t delete this app fast enough.

This show is not only informative but also a blast to listen to. Ben and Noel really make it feel like you are there with them hanging out and ranting about crazy stories from the past. I highly recommend not only this podcast but also the page “Ridiculous Historians” on Facebook. Together they create an amazing community that feels more like a group of friends than just fans and podcasters.

This is a great podcast to listen to. Entertaining. However hearing the hosts say/ask ‘Right?’ At the end of sentences is annoying

This is my favorite podcast! I love to listen while I fold clothes, cook dinner or clean. I even listen in the car. Not only is it informational but Ben and Noel’s chemistry is unmatched. I highly suggest. 👌🏻

The only podcast my husband and I listen to on the road!

by nita9211 on Nov 29, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

My husband loves quirky history stories and I like feel good funny hosts of shows so this is our favorite to listen to when we’re on road trips. The hosts are funny (our kind of humor) and we love the way they present these history stories! Can’t believe believe people give them bad reviews for not knowing their history facts who the f* listens to this as a history class? It’s a conversation story telling kind of podcast. We love you guys!

Big fan of the show

Again, big fan. Thanks for having me on the show, oh wait this isn’t radio; my bad. Love all the quirky little facts, and would love to hear more about the gold standard and the man who lobbied for it to stay at 16oz of silver equals 1 oz of gold.

Ben Bolin. but a fading HSW...

by Brainbeats on Nov 08, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

Ben Bolin, Classic HSW host. The last of the unbiased host.They don't take themesleves too seriously, so refreshing.Not the repeated ' PC lecture, editorials' you get from Josh and Chuck now.I feel I get both sides of the story with this crew.Pro tip:High Speed Stuff/CarStuff is a must download even if you don't dig cars.

Not nearly as professional as expected

The inaccuracies in the story of the “tootsie roll drop” are monumental and inexcusable...I couldn’t listen to any further episodes. An 11th grader in a high school history class, having read a “cliff notes” version of the war, could have given a more credible presentation.....

Interesting info, annoying presentation

Couple idiot wannabes talk about things they don't understand. Keep walking.Sad, as the occasional subject is ripe for exploration, but these bros keep it stupid (as they do a great job of 'pretending?' to be.)But distressing and depressing are the 5 star reviews. Really people?
