Description

There’s a reason the History Channel has produced hundreds of documentaries about Hitler but only a few about Dwight D. Eisenhower. Bad guys (and gals) are eternally fascinating. Behind the Bastards dives in past the Cliffs Notes of the worst humans in history and exposes the bizarre realities of their lives. Listeners will learn about the young adult novels that helped Hitler form his monstrous ideology, the founder of Blackwater’s insane quest to build his own Air Force, the bizarre lives of the sons and daughters of dictators and Saddam Hussein’s side career as a trashy romance novelist.

Y'all need to go back to civics class and learn the difference between a US Senator vs a STATE Senator, Governor, or Mayor! You all tolerate your Representatives living outside of their home states for most of the year so the expectation he stay is just fake outrage. None of you have the balls to push for having reps work out of home states (something effective) but would rather rage tweet about a single incident and forget about it next week (ie virtue signaling).

When you are playing the video, the volume of the video is very low. While you are commenting on it, it is impossible to hear. So, it ends up being 5 - 10 minutes of very confusing noise. Otherwise great couple of episodes.

Sofie/Sophie.... please stop eating while you and Robert are recording. Other than that you're great! Robert... never stop having your knives, swords and machetes as your surprise guest. Been listening from day 1- episode 1. Your Oregon episode sure did teach this born, raised and current Oregonian girl some things.

FBI POSITION ON JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY "The supporters of this organization and those influenced by the vicious propaganda it has been putting out are typical of the fanatics who have been attempting lately to disparage and discredit Bureau speakers who have been giving audiences a true, factual picture concerning the nature of the threat which communist activities in this country represent."

J. EDGAR HOOVER, November 1964 press conference: "Personally, I have little respect for the head of the John Birch Society since he linked the names of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the late John Foster Dulles, and former CIA Director Allen Dulles with communism."

I'm a little uncomfortable with how quick they are to blame his employees for complicity, it's really complicated, he's threatening to have people killed, as they mentioned. It's entirely possible these complicit employees were just a scared. He had the power over EVERYTHING.
