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.

I'm a huge fan of this podcast and barring some true batshittery will always be. That being said I do feel that the author and his frequent guests Cody and Katy (whom I also love) do lean a little hard on some topics in a way that I don't agree with. I think both the left and the right have some attitudes and personal preferences that are treated as absolute truth, and that the discussion becomes combative and dogmatic because of this. Just because we don't agree totally on the big picture does not mean that they aren't people who legitimately care or that they aren't effective, ethical journalists trying to inject some sanity and levity in a confusing and awful mess. We are all going to be, and in fact are, wrong about certain things. Not going to throw the baby out with the bathwater here.

the A for occident gets in there because PEGIDA is German and the A stands for Abendland. While Abendland has had slightly different connotations from Okzident, which we also have, thanks to the grandaddy of fascy decline of civilization theorists Oswald Spengler in the 20s, occident is the closest translation. something Robert could have known if he weren't a hack and a fraud. I still love him though.

is Robert a dirty Red? yep!. it's cool to hear a honest alternative perspective on history, even if it rubs my ideals the wrong way sometimes. Sometimes he even makes me shift my perspective, which makes him a bastard too 😁 And best of all he makes me laugh

Not only did Fritz pull bread from the air, he also laid the groundwork for modern chemotherapy treatments. Without nitrogen mustard there would be no methotrexate. thanks Fritz....you bastard.

I too am opinionated and desire others to listen to my interminable, decompensated rants. I'm further encouraged that nobody of consequence will ever see this.

German here: Zeit does not mean news. Zeit means time. There is a newspaper called Die Zeit though. But that's like an English language paper called Times. Zeitung means newspaper. But that doesn't mean that you can just cut the -ung and assume Zeit means news.

ALL of these left vs. right pushers suck. You'd think someone so eloquently tickled pink with himself would KNOW it's all a lie and misdirection. Clearly this guy likes to hear himself read and knowing that he works for Jack O'Brien (Daily Zeitgeist) is an ALL THE WAY turnoff. I unsubscribed from them, and I'm unsubscribing from this. Anyone born after 1991 you better get yourself together and stop listening to these self-righteous agenda-pushing tart carts. They're all in Hollywood and ALL trying to tow the line between not offending their Masters and just giving you enough to be a dumb follower.

William M Westcott Thanks for the diatribe, but no one asked you. Your opinion is just like your asshole, it's yours and I'm sure it's funky. Who's self righteous now, goofball? Btw, don't generally assume I'm a guy because having an opinion supposedly isn't in a woman's wheelhouse. Yeah, sometimes he says ok shit, but wouldn't you know it, not enough for me. Go post hustle on Facebook.

Opus Alcoholicum Ahh you’re so cool you can’t be identified at all! So righteous! Lolol but for real while this guy does annoy me sometimes he talks about interesting things often enough for me to listen some. You calling out people as ‘Hollywood’ reveals more about your own politicization than perhaps you realize. Again I don’t use this guy as a main source of information and is somewhat annoying at times but he does do deep dives into things a lot of people don’t so I find every third ep or so interesting. I read things from the intercept to the national review so while I’m not fully entrenched in a bubble I do gather enough information to know I’m generally leftist but with some conservative community sympathies and libertarian freedom sympathies. But grow up dude you calling people you dislike Hollywood shows you are in fact that very same dumb follower that you despise.

the Kennedy thing is a myth btw. The thing that is called a berliner elsewhere we call a Pfannkuchen. So the only people presumably snickering in the audience were in all likelihood tourists and definitely a really small minority.
