There are some great podcasts that talk about history--as well as some pretty bad ones too. Even with the ones that are worth listening to, I wished they contained more stories about the undignified and lesser-known facts that were considered too risqué to be taught in school or be presented in a regular history book. Since I love learning about the depravity that peppered history, I thought others may like learning those type of facts as well. I hope you enjoy the Behind The Scenes of History podcast, and please subscribe so you can receive each new weekly episode as they're uploaded!
