Description

Mother Teresa, Dr. Seuss, Gandhi. Is it possible these enlightened historical figures were total scumbags? That's what we try to decide in Scumbags of History, where we pick through the dirty underwear pile of lesser-known facts about some of the famous people society has put on a pedestal. Hosted by confirmed scumbags, comedians Brittany Schmitt and Mateen Stewart, Scumbags Of History is a thoroughly disreputable history lesson on the people you thought you knew from history. Episodes on Frank Sinatra, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, James Brown, Charlie Chaplin, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Picasso, and more figures from history, released weekly.
