Shortly after I turned 60 I discovered this terrific show. This podcast seems to have it’s pretty much in hand. Well done and Thank You 🙂

Meh
They have some cool topic but just don’t dot it right. Maybe it’s because of all the banter or because of the boring things the actually talk about it just doesn’t hit the spot.

I wanna like it so so badly, but I cannot stand how they get distracted so much. They can’t go like five minutes on topic without getting off topic or making dumb jokes. I’m trying to listen to history, and if the topic is Lincoln wrestling, I don’t care where Stone Cold Steve Austin’s...Read full review »

I got through only 25 minutes of the episode on Admiral Nelson. I wanted to learn more about Nelson’s life and hear someone’s analysis or opinion on the significance of Nelson’s various victories and contributions to strategy. Unfortunately, I clearly know more about Admiral Nelson than these...Read full review »

Every time I hear people take you to task about the way you all speak with each other, it makes me wonder: Were they were looking for an audio version of the encyclopedia Britannica, or are they struggling to utilize that writing degree? You have great cadence, relatable banter, and me as a fan!...Read full review »

There is barely any content in the episodes. Half of the episodes are spent advertising various things. When not advertising the hosts drag out the time they spend explaining a topic
Mr.Game911 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/09/22
Though the topics are interesting, the presentation seems sloppy and not prepared. The authors should actually write the dialog then fill in with color commentary as they go along. As it is, we’re listening to the ramblings of the two narrators as they try to figure out what they want to say.

I love this podcast. But the amount of times they say “Indians” makes me slightly very mad other than that great podcast. And has showed me how the make my own.And other creative things. Other podcast ‘secret life of Canada ‘ history this week’ unserved GREAT PODCAST

What the hell, guys? Ive listened to your other podcasts and they’re not nearly as bogged down by ads as this one. Love the content but it’s unlistenable now. Four ads before the episode starts and then another four ads after less than 10 minutes of the actual podcast? That’s just rude
hdjimgs via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/25/22
Oh, god, this is bad. I can’t believe there are so many glowing reviews. Pretty much some boring dudes rambling on with little real research and overinflated sense that they’re funny and interesting. There’s the odd interesting fact if you can separate it from the natter.
Pete Monk via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 03/19/22
I’ve listened to a lot of Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know team over the years. I respect what they do, they do put in work and have a lot of good info. But this is unbearably corny. I get “corny” is sort of your style, but you lean way into it to an absurd degree. You guys are straight up...Read full review »

I really want to like this show but am disappointed every time I tune in. The hosts don’t seem to know much about history. They also don’t seem very prepared for the topics they discuss. There’s a lot of “hey, can you believe this crazy thing?” without a lot of context. Also, when they do a...Read full review »

The giggling and jocularity over a serious subject is more than annoying. People died on the Titanic. History involves people living and dying and they need respect not jokes and giggles.
Beleek via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/22
Also keep your politics off the show
Güerroguy9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/22
Going through a full season of the Revolutions Podcast or the Forgotten Wars Podcast can be rewarding, but also sobering. These Ridiculous History episodes are fascinating and often funny!
Mr. Buster! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/22
This is about history not how had white men are, or your ideology. It’s unlistenable
Rlarson589 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/22
Very entertaining, Love the History facts. But every time they bring up Christianity or Religion, They have to Slam it. They're both very Biased, and push there Politics. As long as i can skip or move past. Take it for what it is.Read full review »

Times in to listen to an interesting topic, all i heard for the first half hour was how misogynistic they were back then like seriously… annoying…

More classic please
nerd4545454 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/22
Great podcast. It covers a wide array of topics and there is usually some level of humor in the air. Excellent team of hosts. Bonus is that they clearly credit their sources and suggest supplementary material. Love it!
some dude 87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/22
What makes this great is there’s hardly ever an instance where one of them interrupts the other and that may seem small and minuscule but it can really negate any chemistry between hosts. And these guys have great chemistry that is never foiled by nonsensical interruptions

raawdaawg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/30/21
Concept is great, but execution is awful. The hosts drag out concepts much longer than needed to be able to fit in as many ads as possible. The latest two part episode could have easily been one episode, but why keep it to one when you can double the ads? It was better in the past, but it’s just...Read full review »

Nonegkoignbdddddd via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/13/21
The hosts of this show are a little bit off in the head. They’re very immature and hard to take serious at all. Some of the statements they make in this podcast aren’t even close to true. Most of which don’t even have to do with the topic they are covering. They will just say some stuff like it’s...Read full review »

No more iheart radio bull for me… Been listening for years but I’ve had enough. Thanks for all the past shows but your views on Newsome is disturbing.
NothinButGoofOff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/21
People must like boring old droning historical podcasts, I actually paid attention to most of it. I have ADHD so it’s hard to keep my interest, especially with typically boring subjects like history and these guys managed to do it! Keep up the good work.
Buttcity via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/21
Seriously this is terrible. Great idea very poorly executed.
Agentkaneyn via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 11/18/21
I love these types of podcasts where a different stand is put on commonplace topics but this one needs some work. I was less than four minutes into the podcast and noticed one of the hosts is inhaling into the microphone where it sounds like she’s breathing through a straw. Is there some sort...Read full review »

As a retired Social Studies teacher I’m a big fan of history podcasts. I found this one disappointing. I felt like I was listening to a couple of eighth grade boys presenting historical information interrupted with off-topic discussion of their food dislikes. As a former eighth grade teacher I’d...Read full review »

I was disappointed. Much too talky and jokey. Twelve minutes into the first episode I listened to they were still trying to get across that the old days were hard. They lost me at "furtive ground."Read full review »

I love this podcast, but please leave YOUR politics out of it!!! We don’t have to agree, but everyone should be respectful!
Ren12702 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/21
If I have to hear the exact same Fruit of The Loom commercial back to back one more time on your podcast, I’m going to stop listening. Seriously, it keeps happening and is incredibly annoying.
jwusbwh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/21
They have interesting subjects that they discuss and, for the most part, they are entertaining. However, the quantity and duration of the ads has become ridiculous. It is as bad as cable and in my opinion is untenable. The podcast conglomerates forcing antiquated ad practices is ruining the joy...Read full review »

I tried listening, but they kept talking about unrelated nonsense. I don’t care what clothes you’re wearing and what t-shirts you own.

Boring content, further ruined by Ben. Hey Ben, find another career, hosting podcasts is not in your wheelhouse, sorry.
T money crestwood via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/21
Completely get that shows need to make money, nothing wrong with that, but in terms of the amount of ads a show carries, this podcast gets the balance totally wrong. Way too many ads get in the way of the show itself. Disappointing.
Low on credit via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/15/21
It’s a fun show exactly what the title states. Follow a lot of the HSW guys and this show is good as well. Fun topics and interesting. Well researched! Been listening for a few years. Have even seen the dudes live. I especially think Ben is my fave host. Excited to see what’s next for the series.
