A Wonderful Journey

This is a great podcast. Sure, I have some quibbles: sometimes it feels like Sebastian is almost too generous with his subjects, giving them more intellectual latitude than I’m inclined to offer, but ultimately he uses that as a rhetorical strategy to more deeply interrogate the falsehoods associated with and proffered by the individuals whose histories he digs into, so I can’t be mad at it. Sebastian is extraordinarily good at so many things: synthesizing his research on a topic into a compelling narrative without oversimplifying the matter at hand; debunking falsehoods in a comprehensive way without condescending to those who might have believed in them; and unabashedly calling out the various bigotries that frequently underly a lot of historical falsehoods. He’s lovably goofy and brings a very personal and humane touch to the things he covers, and so the occasional cheesy joke only adds to the enjoyment of learning about history from a very real and relatable human being. His self-recorded musical interludes are satisfying, too. I recommend this podcast without reservation.

The perfect drinking game for history buffs!

This is a fun, zippy podcast that doubles as a drinking game. Every time you hear the word “actually” take a drink. You are guaranteed a buzz. Be warned, you could get alcohol poisoning. Still fun.

Love it.

History is fascinating, even more so when it's the truth and not the lies they teach in public school.

Amazing Podcast!

An absolute pleasure to listen to. My introduction to the podcast was listening to How Bad Was Blackbeard - Ep. 90. I really feel this podcast is so great, I actually enjoy sitting in traffic now, because it’s more I get to listen to.

A little PC - But Overall GREAT

My ONLY complaint with this podcast is the guy is a little too overtly liberal / politically correct, which sometimes takes away from his podcasts. In some cases I have shut off the podcasts entirely because he is so biased and doesn’t even know it. But overall this is one of my favorite podcasts and I recommend it to any history buff.

Very Interesting + Great Topics

The Our Fake History podcast has quickly become one of my favourites. Sebastian has discussed so many interesting topics. Very excited for season 5!

Misplaced trust

I just listened the first time on the moon landing conspiracy. The host, like most of the USA population has little understanding of psychology & emotional intelligence. Human beings are fickle, even if they have performed patriotic & heroic acts. Entire groups can be bought - go check out Dr Asch’s & Dr Milgram’s experiments. Morality is being purposely perverted through psychopathic liars partnering to enslave & destroy society. Listen to Aaron Russo. Listen with objectivity & compassion for the precious human being while listening to psychopaths talk about how they want to “fix” the world like Bill Gates, Paul Offit, chief vaccinologist Stanley Plotkin. Nobody has a right to punch anyone just because he’s being challenged. The entire pharmaceutical & medical establishment is based on lies and harming people though in their core - not one person really wants to harm another - they’re just unconsciously asleep at the wheel of life. If you REALLY want the truth, you gotta put your ego aside and fearlessly leave no stone unturned. Are you ready to challenge your longheld beliefs? Until then - I’ll listen to history detectives with ironclad integrity.

This is absolutely great!

I’m kind of late to the podcast game... but, I’ve listened to a lot in a short period of time and can say this is my favorite. It’s informative, thought-provoking and great if you have any interest in revisionist history. It’s recorded well and is not interrupted every 5 minutes with ads. I’ll continue listening to this while I play catch-up. Thank you guys!

Great History Podcast

Sebastian keeps the show entertaining while covering a wide variety of historical topics from Nero fiddling while Rome Burned to whether King Arthur really existed. I’m a novice historical buff and I LOVE this show!
