I’ve only listened to two episodes so far but I’m wondering if Sophie is just there to be rude? She hasn’t contributed anything except mean comments. I would love to hear her contribute more to the topic. She probably has good things to say. Maybe the other hosts can help bring her in? Otherwise...Read full review »

This is a dogmatic, rabid, leftist propaganda machine. Tune in to listen to a podcast about Ceausescu and get bombarded with how “right wing historians” think Vlad Dracul was a shield against the Muslims and that Matt Walsh would like to murder poor people. Come on now. Why can’t you just give...Read full review »

If they cut out the useless banter they might bring this podcast in at under an hour instead of the bloated 1 ½ to 2 hrs of their regular podcasts. The content is intriguing enough but there’s sooooo much filler. Don’t waste your time on this ‘honor students in a basement high on Pepsi’ podcast.
stickleback-sturgeon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/23
Prime example of “not everyone should have a podcast” Titles sound good but they start talking and get super annoying. Jokes are not funny and I don’t like their format. Doing lectures at the library is better suited for them.
Arlequin92 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/23
Love the content and premise of the show. It is well researched and presented in a very interesting way. I love the dark humor and running jokes. HOWEVER, editing could be better (agree with other reviews about repeated and missing audio) and some guests aren’t wonderful. Some ramble and get too...Read full review »

On June 4, 2019, in the episode Part One: The Last Days of L. Ron Hubbard at the 31:00 minute mark. 😶‍🌫️🍩🛞 It’s an everything bagel. It can be everything.

I appreciate anything that can help me think about some thing in a different way and Robert is incredibly smart. He makes great points and they encourage me to think not only about this issue at hand but how it relates to today.

Consistently brilliant podcast. I never miss an episode.
Fitzer98 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 01/30/23
So much time wasting and shouting in this show is inherently problematic with the format. Aggressive ads would make it deeply unpleasant regardless of content. Going after some of the worst people in history for their disabilities seems to be missing the point by way too far to be useful. There...Read full review »

There’s too many ads… like every ad break I’m skipping promo for five different podcasts. Whats the point of listening when I’m constantly skipping ads and losing focus on what’s happening? The female host really needs a better microphone as it just sounds like poor quality which makes it even...Read full review »
Lizly94 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/30/23
This show is great but Sophie needs to just shut up And figure out how to participate in a conversation without interrupting someone else. It honestly feels like she has zero social awareness and has this inner voice constantly shouting at her about how clever she is and everyone else needs to...Read full review »

I feel like this podcast was designed to hook me. I listened to the 6 part Kissinger masterpiece, and haven’t been able to stop since. My only gripe is that from time to time, the editing is some of the worst I have EVER heard. It’s legitimately terrible with many episodes having guests who...Read full review »
DwuudZ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/28/23
I love that Sophie is chiming in more now! I do wish that the complications could go onto their own feed. Having two shows in one stream, when I'm already getting one from another stream is just sort of a pain to manage. Please consider making it its own show so the weekly recaps have their...Read full review »

Definitely listen to the Twilight Zone movie episode…absolutely horrible and will make you look at Hollywood’s “golden” directors in a whole different light.
Txkeleieio via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/23
I’ve been an avid listeners since this podcast first aired. It’s been my go to as soon as a new episode comes out. In a bored state I looked at the reviews for the first time and it’s almost like there’s a club that was formed out of spite for Sophie. The blatant bashing is really weird....Read full review »

Good pod but please please stop putting It Could Happen Here in the feed of this show.
cassodayann via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/23
The host is well spoken and offers good insight. However, whenever the girl (is it Sophie?) opens her mouth it completely highlights the difference in brain cell quantity between the two. She offers nothing of value to this podcast and every time she speaks it feels like we are being spoken to by...Read full review »
BenjaminTB via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/26/23
More biased woke people who think they’re way funnier than they actually are. I can’t even make it through the dr phil episode, just lots of talking about nothing not to mention how many times they say grifter and go off topic. It’s just boring with an air of superiority that’s very off putting.
Kandyst4r via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/23
Only in 2022 wld anyone on a podcast say a William Friedkin movie set needed to have been ‘safe’ instead of striving for realism. What a bunch of wimps.
Alx Nvrmnd via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 01/25/23
Some people who hate hearing a woman talk disagree but Sophie is great, the entire pod is fascinating, Robert is hilarious and curious about the interesting subjects he explores. If you don’t mind women speaking you will enjoy this podcast!
andhowdc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/23
I really like Robert and have learned a lot from this show. The only issue I have is that I’ve increasingly noticed a tic that Robert has where he clears his stuffy nose by blowing out through it. It’s not bothering me enough to quit listening yet, but I fear it may eventually.
scrunchi2003 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/23
While most of the content is really good, the regular interruptions by the producer are off putting. They rarely add anything of substance to the conversation. Additionally the ad transitions are just ridiculous. I know it has become a thing at this point but it doesn’t make them any less...Read full review »

I love Robert and the guests. And I love Sophie, who seems to be producing all the best podcasts in one of life’s weird coincidences ;)
JennyJenkins10 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/24/23
The guy in this is excellent - takes a nuanced view, well-informed. Interesting things to say. But he has a cohost who likes to spew anti-women vitriol… is this really the place for that? I’m unsubscribing. I enjoy podcasts like this for learning and enjoying some banter and a little escapism…...Read full review »
Miss Pod! via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/23/23
Man, this dude is so far gone. Simping from the word go. Basically just anyone who isn’t a radical leftist gets an episode. It’s far too cringe to get through. And what’s with this new guest?? Did he audition for the most insufferable person he could find? Safe time, read Wikipedia and avoid...Read full review »

If you love tacky commercial-radio style advertisements every 10 minutes, you’ll love this podcast.
Jovian Gasbag via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/23
I tried to like this as I believe there is some good content here but the hosts continual laughter at each other ruins the listening experience. In one episode, a six minute period contained less than one minute of content as the hosts tried to out-humour each other. Deleted all episodes after this.
Veccy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/22/23
You guys got me with the Kissinger miniseries and ive been hooked to your pod ever since. There’s a limitless supply of historical & present day bastards that I reckon this show will never end. And I am here for it. Keep up the fantastic (albeit, anger-inducing) work, which keeps me good...Read full review »
sick of ryan reynolds via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/22/23
From a content perspective, this show is great. Funny delivery and interesting subject matter keep us hooked. However, this show is much quieter than other podcasts, and even the advertising it’s packaged with, by at least 5dB to 10dB. There are many points throughout the show that we can’t hear...Read full review »

I really miss the days before Sophie got a mic, She contributes absolutely nothing. on top of not having anything funny or intelligent to say, she’s also just really rude.

Katred77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/23
Informative overall and has the potential to be a great podcast but there is a lot of filler with opinions, jokes that aren’t really funny, and political commentary. I lean to the left myself, but these folks are VERY far left which sometimes makes it difficult to get through. Wish they’d tone...Read full review »
whitneyv05 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/23
Incredibly well researched and written podcast. Would love it if Sophie stopped interrupting Robert - so off putting and it sounds like Robert is irritated too. Hard to get through important episodes because she keeps interrupting
Artfully like the breeze via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/19/23
I’m fascinated by the topics presented here, but the host and his guests spend WAY too much time yammering on about nothing, instead of getting to the point. I’m sure they are having a great time together, but it’s a pain for this listener. I can’t take it. I give up. Deleting if from my list....Read full review »
Hannah hester via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/23
Honestly it’s a great show with great topics when your guests are all terrible as Brodie reed and you can’t keep ignorant opinions out of history then you should just do something else. You would think a guy who does this much research would understand the world better but he doesn’t. And Brodie...Read full review »

Ruined by Sophie’s useless interruptions and not funny comments, really disappointing.
CxB&&Trade via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/23
Very informative and well researched podcast includes important conversations on some “influencers”. If I had some feedback, I would recommend some editing of the podcast. I’m 45 minutes into the Andrew Tate episode and his name has yet to be brought up or talked about. I understand context and...Read full review »
Quin005 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/23
Listen to the cig podcast. It was good, but they have a strong left political bias. It became quite obvious by their humor. I like more middle ground. I think these guys live in a big city bubble.

tiempo1978 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/23
I came here to learn about Helena Blavatsky. I can see why there were four parts to the episode as they go off on so many tangents it doesn’t get to the point.
Katezzz via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/14/23
Despite some people hating on the producer, I love Sophie’s presence on the show. She’s hilariously exasperated with Robert, as any sane person would be. He is ridiculous and wonderful and smart and seems to not have an issue with people other than him talking..he even has guests (gasp—even...Read full review »

the way Robert pronounces memoir. never change, king.
Katie Kinney via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/23
The thorough research, interesting subject matter, and charming banter make this one of my favorite podcasts. I especially love Sophie, who is not shrill and handles Robert’s machete obsession with grace. Don’t pay attention to the misogynistic reviews- EVERYTHING about this pod is great.
Ms. Vandy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/11/23
Sophie, please talk more. We need to make sure the crybabies have something to piss and moan about. I enjoy this podcast.
cleververse via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/11/23
The subject matter is fascinating and the lead researcher is thorough and very articulate.

These folks put Jordan Peterson along side Hitler as far as worst humans ever. Soaked in self righteous liberal bias.
Combaticus83 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/23
This is well written and the info is great! The only issue I consistently have and I sometimes have to turn it off….Sophie. She is literally like a mom/buzz kill. Talks over everyone and isn’t funny or interesting. Frankly she’s just irritating. Sorry, but I gotta call it like I see it.
