I have learnt more about history listening to this podcast than I ever did at school!!!

Overall, I do enjoy the show. But I recently listened to the "what broke up the Beatles" episode and the host was very supportive of Yoko. Then I realized she is Yoko. Her husband was having fun in his band and then they started dating, she went to one show, and he was out of the band....Read full review »

Perfect combo of learning about history and sharing good laugh. Thanks for the welcome distraction. You mentioned Absinthe in Las Vegas. All time favorite show ever. Hilarious!

I have been down many a rabbit hole thanks to the topics discussed on this show. The topics are delivered in a humorous manner with just enough info to make one fall into a google wormhole to discover more info. Thank you for the podcast. It’s one that I get very excited about seeing in my feed...Read full review »

Great podcast. The topics are always great and interesting. The synergy between Rebecca, Chris and Amanda is amazing. I just hope that the wannabe fact checker, Clayton, doesn’t mess it up. lol.

A very fun podcast for those who are interested in historical disasters, very informative but can also be funny and lighthearted!

Lots of fun. Recommended!

History is full of tragedies, but does it have to be? What if the people/places/concepts/institutions that are to blame for these events were locked away? We’d surely end up with two things: a crowded prison and a safer future. Plus, with consequences like these, big offenders like the fashion...Read full review »

I thought this would be my jam but chose the Woodstock 99 episodes to start and despite a good concept this just isn’t very good. I expected more than people alternating between talking about a recent documentary and (badly) reading passages of articles about the event - and then passing pious...Read full review »

Host and guests are great, love listening to them discuss these issues

Hello! I am obsessed with this podcast. I just started it last week from episode 1 and am burning through quickly! However I have a question - why in every episode does it randomly cut away to a British interview about hate crimes on the London Underground?
Sayrah256 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/11/21
This podcast includes three of the most valuable tools in life: humor, history, and humility. Always entertaining (love Amanda's dry sense of humor) and informative, the hosts are also more than willing to reconsider their judgments once the experts (who are truly phenomenal) have weighed in....Read full review »

I started listening to this podcast a few months ago and have binged nearly all the episodes. Love the hosts, interesting topics, funny debates and I almost always agree with who’s to blame!!
KerryLou G via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/07/21
Paying dismissive lip-service to people who offer points that question the sensationalization of the story, also suggesting they are sick at the beginning for taking a scientific, critically analytical view (re: needing 30 bodies) and calling out the misspellings in their post, meanwhile focusing...Read full review »

i love listening to this podcast when i’m cleaning, driving, or working out. honestly just feels like i’m part of a conversation in someone’s living room. i also LOVE the aftermath because it allows the audience to have their opinion be heard. 10/10 would recommend
gabby blm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/21
Really enjoyable to hear different dissections of various calamities and events- the hosts have a nice rapport and include a guest expert. My only critique is the hosts’ constant and consistent mispronunciation of really simple words and difficulty sometimes in reading a basic text…it’s...Read full review »

I cannot remember who recommended the Alarmsit to me - but I wish I could because I’d send them a big Thank you note! This podcast is wonderful - deep dives with voting on “who’s to blame” for some of history’s most forgotten or memorable catastrophies and calamities . I KNEW I was hooked when...Read full review »
DeVito5898 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/18/21
I love, love, love this podcast! It’s such a unique way to learn about events in our history. I am really appreciative of the follow up episodes with the guest-expert.
Crazyteach via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/21
If you’re a history buff and love comedy then this podcast is for you! I’m a long time listener and am catching up on older episodes that I missed. I just listened to the coronavirus toilet paper episode and the tag line of “we were pretty close” compelled me to write this review because that is...Read full review »

Look forward to my Alarmy time every week. Thanks Rebecca, Chris & Amanda!

Fantastic podcast that combines history and humour. Love the variety of topics. Would love to hear their take on the Thredbo ski disaster of 1997. Keep up the great work and not far now till 1 million episodes!!
Jayman2456789 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/07/21
I love this podcast! Such interesting stuff
The Bauers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/21
I feel like listening to Rebecca, Amanda and Chris has allowed me to perfect my own catastophizing skills and for that I say….arghhh 🤯!?!? But also thank you for your thoughtful and swift analysis. Best way to start a Sunday morning.

Fun show about bad times, and never a lack of topics.
Johnny Dekalb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/21
This is entertaining and I learn about these crazy events, it’s funny and relevant
trying to time via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/17/21
This podcast is literally the only one I look for on the days it drops - and it has really hit its stride the past months. Great balance of political (Anita Hill) , historical (Tulsa massacre ), Classic (Abraham Lincoln) , Contemporary (Madoff) , Pop Culture (Carrie) and the offbeat (Emu War). ...Read full review »
Dczoo1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/21
This is one of the podcasts that I listen to every week and don’t skip. I have learned lots of interesting things but the best bit is that the hosts discuss each topic just like my friends and I would around a table with a cup of coffee and some snacks. Shout out to Chris - I very much enjoy his...Read full review »
Just Add Guinea Pig via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/17/21
I love the comedic history of this show. However, it’s getting old how they blame everything on racism and capitalism. Over and over again. The molasses flood might be the last episode I can take. Too bad, this podcast almost had me.
TanaKilbourn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/21
A form of white privilege is back again. Going to be disappointed when he finds out you can’t tunnel out of a ship. I do enjoy this job, 5 stars. Deputy Chris

I love this pod so much! It’s always my first listen of the day when it pops into my feed. The hosts are hilarious. Keep it up Earios! Web Crawlers and the Big Ones are also equally as amazing!
Jenny_McE via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/21
I am loving this show and the podcasters. Can’t wait for the next show each week. It’s fun to have guest on the show that don’t know the subject very well but can still put a slight take on the information.The follow up shows have been very good as well many of the guest being experts in their...Read full review »

Hi guys, Thanks for creating an amazing podcast. My partner loves listening to podcasts and has tried to get me to listen to different ones. I began to think that podcasts weren’t my thing, until we found yours. I love the whole premise of your show. You have the perfect balance between history...Read full review »

I always learn something new. They manage to keep the discussions light while being respectful of the victims of these events.
sdb2468 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/21
Great concept but the host’s philosophy vary episode to episode and is not consistent. Sometimes they blame the individual, sometimes the concept with no over arching criteria from episode to episode. The Aftermath eps are more interesting imo because they interact with an expert who brings up...Read full review »

Let the Alarmists do that! They put in they hard work and research and you get to lay back and enjoy their silly conversation. Love this podcast!
hikixx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/21
When I first heard the introduction that this is a comedy podcast about tragedies, I thought “how inappropriate and insensitive. “ But then I listened, learned a whole lot, was entertained, and found the host(s) to be really warm and sensitive while sharp-witted. I love that they want to...Read full review »

Love this Almost educational podcast

This is a informative and funny show, a great office buddy for those long WFH days. Could use a bit of more international caos, after all, the whole world keeps messing things up again and again.
PGPSB via Apple Podcasts · Chile · 06/03/21
Only started listening to podcasts at the start of lockdown. This was one of my earliest finds and I’m so glad as it’s got me through the entire year. It’s enjoyable and informative. It’s evolved from the beginning and the aftermath has been a great addition. Would highly recommend
Piptemkin via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/03/21
I was listening to the episode talking about your listeners around the world and I’m one from Japan!(I am not Japanese, but I don’t consider this cheating) I often listen to your podcast on my long commute where I laugh inappropriately on the bus and get multiple stares. The cast is hilarious...Read full review »

I have been listening to The Alarmist for about six months and I absolulety love it!

It is an insightful, funny, and smart podcast and I always...Read full review »

Love the history and range of topics but they try too hard to “blame” silly things only to dial it back - really? Blaming water adverse Northerners for deaths at a water park?
hambutt2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/21
Informative(rly well presented research) +Great discussions and commentaries on interesting /important / topics. Thanks Alarmist + Earios !
m_dog420 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 06/01/21
I listen to podcasts most days while I do my desk job and I love this one. It’s both serious and light. Not sure how we get this mix but it’s working. Something to cover: the Eruption of Mt St Helens Seems like plate tectonics would be to blame, but maybe not?
heathert66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/21
I love that I learn a bit of history while also having a good laugh! The Cats episode had me cracking up while on my walk. Probably got some weird glances, but who cares? Keep it up!
