The most wonderfully disturbing podcast ever. Love you Gareth and Derry!
Dave strings fabulous yarns from American history while Garreth reacts and improvises bits about the story which he has before never known of... they are both American heros and true legends of this age.
By far the funnest and most interesting podcast I've listened to. The hilarious true stories are only matched by the fantastic hosts Dave Anthony and Gareth (don't call him Gary) Reynolds. I learn something new with every listen and laugh throughout. It really is true what they say, truth is stranger than fiction!
Iâm really grateful for this podcast. It makes me laugh, including the dark humor where I feel a little like a bad person, in a good way). It touches on vast areas and figures of history that are both all but forgotten and sometimes crucial. It helps to break through the whitewashed history I learned and the cloud of clinical depression that sometimes shuts out the light of my own humor.Keep doing what youâre doing. Itâs awesome.
History is usually told as a dry boring progression of events, Dan and Gareth bring it to life in all its full color absurdity and multiple hat based Kerfuffles ! So funny milk will shoot out your nose as you guffaw riotously (even if you werenât at that moment drinking milk) if I could give it 50 stars I would
Happy I stumbled onto this one! Absolutely hysterical. If you like history and comedy, this is for you!
Iâm going back and listening to all episodes from the beginning as Iâm getting my husband into the podcast. Around episode 120+/- I realized I had a Pavilion response to Garethâs singing of âAdelaide.â He didnât break into song and my anxiety started to tingle, like, I needed for Gary to sing to finish the circuit. Other than that, the podcast is hilarious, informative and crazy AF.
One of my favorite podcasts, but I donât know if there are new microphones or what because the constant lip smacking from both drives me absolutely insane!
Daveâs somehow silly, dry, dark sense of humor mixes super well with Garrettâs quick and hilarious improv skills. Plus the topics are super interesting. Shout out to Jose
I have never been so sad and so happy at the same time! A truly funny look at the screwed up history of the U.S. with two hilarious comedians.
Maybe the funniest podcast Iâve ever listened to. 300+ episodes and still going strong. Canât recommend it enough.
Review update: I was a huge fan. This was an awesome podcast up until the last year and a half or so. Listen to the first episodes: they are amazing. Iâve found the magic is gone now, and hope Gareth moves on... heâs brilliant, but Dave is gettin less and less funny and more and more bitter. The joy is gone.
Easily my favorite podcast. Iâm a trucker and need something to keep me stimulated. When music gets monotonous I run to the dollop.
One of the very best podcasts. There is nothing better to cure depression then some Dave and Garth.
Never miss an episode! I learn a lot, freak out a lot and laugh a lot!!!!
Educational and hillarious. I have shared this podcast with all of my good friends and it was always well received. Long live Dave and Gary!! Yeah girl!!
Dave your mastery of American history is hilarious. Gareth all your voices and accents are funny as hell!
The hilarious unveiling of our unspoken history is a fabulous educational experience, which makes me laugh while validating my belief that we are all horrible disgusting beings that are the worst plague our planet has produced.
hands down the best podcast out there! love the live episodes!!!!
Daveâs rage and extensive knowledge make history so much more enjoyable..... Garethâs cool too.
This is one of my absolute favorite podcasts. Dave and Gareth are hilarious, and banter like an old married couple. Itâs always exciting when I get a notification that thereâs a new episode, and I hurry to listen as soon as possible!Dave is extremely well-prepared and thorough in his research, and I love that he can put a funny spin on all these true events. Garethâs reactions are surprising and smart. Half of the fun is when I react to the story right along with him!This podcast is such a pleasure to listen to! Itâs a biweekly American History podcast which makes me smile, once a week ;)
Start listening. They are amazing. I feel smarter for listening while being entertained. Long live jose!
Much like Pringles, once you pop you just canât stop (tm). Thank sweet baby Jesus there are so many episodes. Love the show and canât wait to see Gary live in Pittsburgh
This show is the funniest podcast going!!
Proud Rube. Informative and funny. Always the first podcast I listen to. Keep 'em coming fellas!
I have become super obsessed with podcasts in the last 6 months, Iâm actually behind on all my shows because I constantly stream these instead. I listen to all different genres and THIS is the only one that I can always go to and be entertained. There are so many different topics, and so much information. I LOVE history, and these obscure pieces of our history that I would never know anything about without this podcast are amazing. The absolute ridiculous things that were done over the centuries blows my mind! (Eating a recently deceased loved ones heart to prevent TB?!) I also love the banter between The hosts. Thank you! Everyone should add this to their list of podcasts. Put it at the top of your list!!
Love Dave and Gareth! They always make me laugh!
Donât skip the commercials, these dudes are freaking genius.
Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds have great chemistry and random bursts of improvisations of the stories they tell. Truly a gem.
I redd a book in the 90s about the horrific story of the true story of lambs.lt is so bad but of corse human brain wants to read this even though itâs the scariest thing lve so far.l want to no where l can find this book,and read it start to finish.please let me no how l can read this book.
This is a great podcast I have not missed a single episode. If you have never heard this podcast start with Otto in the attic. Gareth and Dave are fantastic.
EXCELLENT Randy Newman theme songs. Hope to hear many more of them in the future! "It's a complicated, it's a complicated thing..." - Worth it for the Randy Newman tunes alone!
Seriously laugh out loud funny, love this podcast
Easily my favorite podcast. The chemistry between Dave and Gareth is fantastic, and Iâve learned a lot.
But this podcast teaches me something new every week. Also, hilarious reading all the "America LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT" comments in the reviews. Hilarious.But WAY too many live shows now. Glad theyâre doing so well that the live shows are so popular, but the taped shows are much, much tighter.
Enjoy every episode. The best podcast!
Quite possibly the best podcast out there.
Listener be warned!!! It has been proven that the combination of Dave and Gareth can cause laughter fits that can be dangerous to your health, especially when their comedy and improv is mixed with actual messed up historical events. You have been warned. If you die of laughter they can not be heldAccountable.
One of the best things out there
I absolutely just love this podcast! There is a topic for everyone.
Very funny and interesting historical stories. What would I do without Dave and Gary?
Please job me
I was never a podcast person until a friend introduced me to The Dollop. Youâll laugh, youâll cry, youâll be embarrassed to be an American, youâll fall in love with Dave and Gary/Gareth, youâll laugh out loud at work much to the irritation of your coworkers. Dave Anthony is a talented researcher and writer and Gareth Reynolds is all of us and together theyâve made my life more fulfilled. I wish theyâd sign my car.
I absolutely adore this podcast. Not many other places you can learn a lot of hidden, often pretty cringe-worthy history while laughing.
Love this podcast! These guys have me laughing until I cry every time!
One of the greatest podcasts out there! These two have great chemistry together and are hilarious. Wish Dave was my history teacher, maybe I would have paid attention in school!
Takes work to get through and know when they are trying to be funny and babble and when hey are trying to tell the story. If you like fart jokes this if for you. If you want the story go elsewhere. Not funny. They just babble and don't tell the story without ADD.
This show is amazing. My wife and I listen every time we play video games together. We love it so much we have demanded all our friends listen to it too. (Including the live episodes. I donât care what anyone says. They are some of the best ones, and most often ones we recommend people start with.). Five stars. Two thumbs up. Do recommend.
