Having listened to both the Napoleon podcast and Rays WW2 podcast for some time I couldn’t believe my lucky when these to blokes teamed up for this podcast. There chemistry and humour make history fun and informative. It’s also forced me to question how I personally label people. For instance having listened to Cam sit back and relax, somehow ignoring a smoke detector beeping episode after episode while David rambles on about Napoleon paints a contrasting image to the wealth an knowledge he displays in this podcast and the rest of his podcasting catalogue. The same goes for Ray’s detailed, monotone, comprehensive walkthrough of the Second World War. He come across very knowledgeable… I’m just saying people can surprise you. In all seriousness these gentlemen are doing a wonderful job. They are largely responsible for my now love of history. Having listened to hundreds of episodes the guilt of having not left a review now weighs upon me heavily every time it’s mentioned in a podcast. So here is the 5 stars you so heartily deserve. Keep up the good work boys.

A concise history of both Julius Caesar & Augustus. Take from reputable sources with added humour (much needed sometimes as Ancient Rome can get somewhat tedious). Both Cam the Australian guy & Ray the American fella (Thought I’d specify as many get you both mixed up with hilarious consequences) work well together. Well, when I say work well, Cam does most of the work while Ray has his on “research” methods 😜 A serious history podcast taken not so seriously. Plenty of linked music to the topics as well as an abundance of dick jokes. And c*nt jokes, these guys aren’t sexist 👍🏻😄 If only this podcast was around over a decade ago when I was in school. Keep up the good work guys 🙂 (I’m only writing this review as I’ve just bought a house and need coffee mugs 😉)
