Öin which, we discuss the bi-weekly podcast that discusses the very worst people and things in history, with frequent comedic asides! BtBís host is one Robert Evans no, not that one , conflict journalist, former Cracked writer, author of a book about slurping some salamander, current Bellingcat contributor, and overall pod-caster.

There isnít any sort of plot or order to BtB, as most subjects span 1-3 episodes, about an hour and change long. However, SWIM Iíd heartily recommend starting from Episode 1 as it sets your base of Farting Hitler, and will gradually escalate to a full Bleach Drink fourth plateau-esque experience.

Additionally, there are guest hosts! Sophie, who deserves her own hour of power, honestly! One pumps, with the possibility of one cream to follow! Many callbacks to past episodes, whether subject-related or not.

A solid taste of Ēis this show my speed?Ē would be the Alex Jones four-parter, which also sounds like a pizza topping that would give you immediate gout. Alternatively the L.Ron one, thatís one you pour a stiff drink to. However, there are more serious episodes, such as the recent one on current uprisings (Rojava, Hong Kong, Lebanon, among others), and the Georgia Tann episode. Luckily, all of the episodes (minus the one that you canít at all find if you look, should one hypothetically do so) are here, and on pretty much all places where pods are casted.

Can I gently request a mod to make the title ĒWhatís swinginí, my machetes! Itís Behind the BastardsĒ as this is the thread title i got absurdly upset with after i kept getting dinged. Should that not work out, Iíll settle for ĒMachetes!Ē

Getting in on the ground floor to call out this quackery. I am an actual reverend doctor of macheticine, and what the supposed reverend doctor Evans is selling as macheticine, is nothing more than snake oil.

I really enjoyed the good guy xmas bonus episode about the Swedish dude who realised the power of a confident white man to yell at nazis until they freed a bunch of people.

Edited to add: PRODUCTS!!!!

Love the show. Although, as I said in the podcast rec thread, I sometimes canít handle how horrible some of the bastards really are.
As a bit of an exception, the Steven seagal ones are hilarious, even though he also is a loving monster.

I think I have an idea as to who, but mums the word as to not make it weird. Iím not going to potentially out him, despite the grandiose wealth and riches Iíve been offered to do so.

Should he make himself visible, his call! but letís not make it weird unless all parties choose to do so, and then we go into the woods and finally make it weird

I thought he said in his last episode (The man trying to resurrect 8chan...) that he got banned? I also unironically love the Behind the Bastards podcast, even though some of the bastards make me physically ill. I'm surprised the Dutch and their history of bastardism haven't shown up yet. We're unironically pretty horrible.

You lot showed up briefly in the episode on the East Indies, but as with a lot of things to do with empire, you got beat out by the Brits.

I would like an episode on Steve Bannon in Europe, though I have only come to BtB recently and might have missed an episode here or there dealing with Bannon. Failing that, an alt-right round up could be very interesting.

I like this podcast quite a bit and robert evans is pretty good, but I honestly think it may have the biggest variance of quality in any podcast I like between its strong and weak episodes.

I think a lot of it has to do with the guest. As examples, bill cosby and Steven seagal are exceptional episodes, and both of them have strong guests

Sometimes he gets people on who dont add much other than "oh my god how appalling I can't even" and the eps end up a bit lacking for it. He seems to be at his best with a good foil

Also, its sister show Worst Year Ever is worth a listen as kind of like a Chapo-lite

Maybe an episode about Chris Kyle? I mean there are still people who think he was nothing less than a hero when he was pretty obviously a psychopath who accidentally saved other soldiers while killing people.

I'm finding I really enjoy history podcasts. Robert also has a good 'radio voice' I think, some of his guests don't however.

History of Rome? That should be mandatory. The first episodes are really rough, though.

I know there's quite a few listeners on SA because recent topics of the podcast happen to be subtly brought up in threads I follow from time to time haha. Curious what Robert's banned post is.

Also, I second listening to "History of Rome". Great history podcast.

It's a bit annoying that despite the extensive research Evans does he never looks up the pronunciations of people's names. And considering how often he covers bastards that aren't American that's kind of a problem.

Besides that it really is an excellent podcast though.

I agree, but it's also really American and somehow endearing. I am now starting the Kaiser Wilhelm episode, I've high expectations.

Also thanks to everyone for the recommendations, I've slept one hour since yesterday just been listening to podcasts @_@ This is gunna be a great weekend.

Ah no I meant it like individual statements separated by exclamation points, but I can see how it can be construed that way.

Billy Wayne and Edgar Momplaisir are two of my favorite regular guests. Jamie and Cody kinda get up my nose (especially when they beat a joke to death, which they constantly do) but I can live with it.
