About Us

Remember being bored in your high school history classroom? Remember memorizing useless fact after fact? Today's education system crams history standards into a booked curriculum to the point of absurdity. It's all usually pretty important stuff but important isn't the same thing as interesting. Because of the way schools are run, we have almost no time for the truly hilarious and engaging stories of the past. Let Jess and Joe, two high school teachers, introduce you to some of the outstanding stories of the past you never got to learn in the classroom and maybe you'll enjoy it this time around.

Latest Episodes

122 – The War on Emus

Few countries can boast of a war against our feathered foes. We covered one battle against birds in the Chinese Communist Calamity episodes but now it’s time to look into Australia’s army versus that of the Emu hordes plaguing the western farms in the early 20th century.

120 – The Continued Struggle for Women’s Suffrage

You knew it wouldn’t be that easy right? The fight to vote didn’t end in Seneca Falls and women would struggle onward for nearly about another 70 years before they could vote. But the Civil War threw a real whirlwind of change in America as to who was a citizen, who could vote, and who still couldn’t. Listen in as some rockstar names take the stage like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Carrie Chapman Catt continue the fight!

119 – Seneca Falls and the early push for women’s suffrage

As we near the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, Joe seeks to outline the key players in making this reality take place. But to do so we have to dive back to probably the biggest push for women’s voting since Jane Addams was in the White House. The Seneca Falls convention was the who’s who of women’s suffragists in the 1800s and would outline the game plan for decades to come. It would even have a surprise guest lecturer would would rock the house in favor of women’s voting rights! Can you guess who it was?
