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.

Is comparing the worst people in history to nerdy interests considered punching down yet? History podcasts are also a bit nerdy, my dudes.

Sure, the sound wasn't great... but once you get over that, you're rewarded with a very interesting story. And this one is one of the more hilarious episodes I've heard. Robert and Billy Wayne have great chemistry. He has become one of my favorite guests.
