I was on board with Alex Jones but Ted Cruz is just kind of a douche with zero blood on his hands.
The podcast started as an interesting history show... And they gave up on research and just show their bias as much as they can.
SeanbabyNeeds to be on every episodePlease
Robert Evans is a great host. The show is hilarious given the horrible nature of the topics. Fun times with schadenfreude!
Love the concept and love the shows about historical figures. However, I listen to historical shows typically when I want to escape todayâs political commentary (itâs everywhere) and the hosts views on current politics are heavily strewn throughout the episodes. It has become a major turn off and is distracting from the well done parts of the show and even causes one to question if weâre truly getting the full picture or just the version the host wants you to hear in the interest of furthering his political beliefs.
So interesting! Well researched and well written.
The early episodes about actual dictators were fantastic. The more recent episodes are about how Republicans are all Nazis and if youâre not liberal, youâre evil. Just change the name of the Podcast so you donât fool people into thinking itâs entertainment.
Show got much better as it has progressed although I wish Evans would start going after some more of the evil super left people out there (surprise, they do exist) just to balance it out. Not that Iâm pro fascist (hell no) or anything but Evanâs antifa movement support is really starting to show through.
I really enjoyed these until they became so political, I listen to podcasts to get away from politics. Iâm unsubscribing after the last few obnoxiously biased episodes. What a shame, this could be great
Started out good, but has devolved into political propaganda and calls to violence against opposing political viewpoints. Too bad, had potential.
Robert Evans puts so much attention to detail in this show. It's truly amazing. For anyone who likes Hardcore History this is for you.
If you are looking for a historically accurate view on their subjects then this is not the channel for you. Majority of BTB subjects are just people they disagree with politically, you will not see an episode of anyone they agree with. Their wonât be an episode of Bill Clinton and all his rape accusations, but every episode they take a jab at Trump even when it has nothing to do with him. The host are funny they just have a very slanted view of the world.
Good concept. Enjoy the historical side of it. But the dude just canât not be political. Seriously. Also, the f-word doesnât make you sound more important, smarter, well-spoken, grown-up, tough...it does the opposite.
Complete liberal garbage. I actually gave this podcast a chance by listening to several episodes. I tuned out the bias and tried to actually learn something that I didnât know. I was WRONG! More of the same liberal BS I hear and see everyday. I stopped listening with the Ted Cruz episode after their disclaimer was that âweâre not just bashing conservativesâ. Well... GARBAGE!!
Keeps getting better. Major political bias on full display but donât let that chase you away. Doritos should be available when listening.
Honestly unsubscribing because the episodes are becoming more and more one sided. I enjoy listening to podcasts that un biased in their political beliefs. Sorry, I really enjoyed them but now officially done.
Wish they would talk about the actual subject without interjecting their biases, political views and obvious racism. Was so excited to start listening to this podcast, but was so disappointed after giving it a good run, hoping it would get better, it just got worse.
The show would be great without the co hosts. They are not funny, seem to be ignorant of basic history, and donât really add anything.
This is a great show with a great format, even though the format can sometimes produce an slightly nails-on-chalkboard result depending on the guest. The host, Robert Evans, is always funny and well-researched, though. You will have fun learning. I am not politically conservative, so I agree with a lot of the more left-leaning comments. Evans always makes it a point to be fair in his treatment. Sometimes the guest host - especially in the Reagan episode - is so far on the left that they canât imagine anyone thinking anything differently and demonize conservatives. Not a constructive way forward, and gets old fast. But Evans is great at still trying to get them to see more rationally. If you are sensitive about your faith as a Christian, just know that there are several jokes about the Bible that guests initiate. Itâs clear that they arenât up on the scholarship, though, so donât fret. Stick with the show! It more than makes up for these downfalls.
Iâll be sad to see this show fade as they run out of terrible people to cover.
Love the pod but it is so quiet!
Please do a Bill Cosby episode or 50Iâd like to hear your opinions on Cosby
I listen to podcasts when I run and I had to stop several times during the Steven Seagal episodes to laugh out loud. Steven Segal, ladies and gentleman! Tank crasher, sexual predator, maniac, liar, z-list actor, fake reincarnation of a Buddist holy man, chicken crusher and so much more. How can you not laugh for fear of losing your mind that such a human being even exists? Anyway, listen to other episodes as well. They are all very good. Robert Evans, I salute you.
Best episode yet. You should get seanbaby in there as a cohost. Guys had me laughing for two hours straight!Love the show, also just read a brief history of vice, and as expected it was a great read
I LOVE the content of this show! I would give it 5 starts BUT! the sound quality needs some work. The volume fluctuates a lot. Sometimes itâs really quiet so I turn it up and then they go into ads and I have to tear my headphones out so I donât rupture an ear drum. Some times the hosts start laughing or they get excited about what theyâre talking about and it gets really loud again. Super irritating. Use and equalizer, please!
And now Iâm hooked on Doritos. Thanks
This show is the only reason to look I forward to a Tuesday or Thursday. Incredible show, incredible host, thank you for taking the time to make this
With up beat whatâs up Pete sensibility humor and witty and ingenious information this podcast is by far one of the best podcast I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy I recommend listening to this podcast every day all day and guarantee it will never become old redundant or Steven Seagal.!? Money sign. Thank you P.S. Eat Doritos!
Great show! Wish you would do one on Hillary and bill Clinton. President Lyndon Johnson would be a good one too.
Iâm unsubscribing so Iâm sure this will not be posted. I enjoyed the early episodes but as the series goes on it become more and more political. I listen to podcasts to get away from the politics for awhile, if I want that I would choose to listen to a political podcast... my advice knock off the political talk or change your podcast type to politics so people know what they are signing up for.
Iâve loved most of the episodes, but I literally just turned off the first Ronald Reagan/AIDS episode. I thought this was going to be really good but the Couples Therapy podcast guy made it unlistenable for me. Too off topic and just silly comments that added nothing to the discussion. Iâll keep listening, but not if this guyâs on again.
Good concept, good research , but dear god tune down the virtue signaling about 4 notches. Iâm a liberal and youâre even annoying me! I would assume any conservatives would find this unlistenable.
Informative and entertaining.
A well researched perspective on evils of the past and sometimes the present. I think it provides an important service to go over some of historyâs worst actions and to possibly aid in recognizing their recurrence today. #doritosnotdictators
Iâm really torn about this podcast, I appreciate the depth of the research the host does. I know itâs supposed to be a funny podcast, and sometimes it is funny, but feel there is no balance. Mocking the deaths of peoples lives throughout some of the episodes is not funny, especially after listening to the Duterte episodes, I do not fully support the jokes and humor poked at the people who have died under an extremely corrupt government...that is just something I interpret from the hosts, and I donât feel any respect is shown for the people who are going through some horrible events.
This comedic and thoroughly researched podcast will let you learn about the worst people in history without making you want to drink bleach. #nachosnotnazis #doritosnotdictators
The early historical figures were good. Too many f-bombs but still good. Some effort was made hide their distain for republicans and capitalism but no more. Now itâs just part of the resistance. Iâm out. Iâll wait for the show on George Soros.
All the back story and history on each subject is well thought out and researched!
This podcast is awesome. Iâm listening to the episode on the Reagans and whoever the guest host is should never be asked back - he literally has a comment on everything and then takes the convo 5 mins deep into stuff that doesnât matter.
I cannot get enough of this podcast! The host has a fantastic balance between providing factual knowledge and still keeping it light-hearted and funny. His guests are always a pleasure to listen to (which is not something I can say for all podcasts), and I think he just provides a well-rounded narrative of the situations heâs talking about. I have laughed out loud plenty of times while listening, and have already suckered in a couple of people in to also subscribing because Iâll play it while Iâm driving! Canât wait for more.
Funny and well researched.
I really enjoy listening to this pod while driving to work. It keeps my mind active and the stories are told with humor and wit. They address humanity and further bastardness we didnât know about from school. The subjects theyâve chosen have made me do my own research. I really like the format as one person who is prepped and another coming in cold. The guests are entertaining and relatable. I really enjoy it. Thank you so much! Keep it up!
Most of the episodes are thoughtful and informative. A lot of them are funny too. But the liberal rag commentary is very old now.
Could not take the joking around in this episode. The man is murdering citizens and itâs my understanding they arenât even all drug dealers and druggies.
This is amazing
This is my favorite podcast
The three part episode of the Rise and Fall of Alex Jones was so interesting and hilarious.
I really wanted to like this show but the fact that he seems to buy into so many conspiracy theories makes him a completely unreliable source for real information. His comments about 911 conspiracies illustrates how poor his judgement is. If he trusts the sources that push 911 conspiracies, he definitely lacks sound judgment. And this lack of judgment completely undercuts anything he has to say about historical events. Not that they arenât entertaining stories, but I think he probably is just telling stories. Not actually giving insight into little know aspects of historical figures.
