This week listen to Jacob and Tim butcher the pronunciation of Japanese names while discussing Uesugi Kenshin, the celibate samurai. Then learn that not all Canadians are pacifist hockey lovers living in fear of their moose overlords, as evidenced by sniper Rob Furlong.
On this week's episode we discuss the life of Domino Harvey, a crazy British chick that gets caught up in one of the shadiest lines of work in America, and Federico da Montefeltro, the only soldier of note ever produced by Italy. All the British shenanigans and garbage Italian names you could ask for!
This week we're talking about Charles Rogers, an officer in the military during the Vietnam War and Ned Kelly, Australia's attempt at a Robin Hood but with guns. Listen to their stories of boosting morale during combat, and how much prison time you can get for stolen meats!
Find out if Jacob left in all the Chinese names he can't pronounce properly while telling Tim about a Triad gangster. Then try to guess who blasphemes more when Tim tells Jacob about the Knights Hospitaller and the Siege of Malta. Plenty of racketeering and Ottomans to be had on this week's episode!
These men have lived truly insane lives for very different reasons. Dan Daly basically inspired the phrase, "Travel around the world, meet interesting people, and kill them," and was America's most decorated soldier. Thomas Silverstein inspired the creation of an entire prison and is America's most isolated prisoner. Listen in and find out more!
Both these men share the fact that their childhoods were pretty awful, then went completely different directions with their lives and made names for themselves for very different reasons. More fun nicknames and stories of violence to be had!
A crazy biker and bridge vikings, what more could you want? Maybe food based nicknames and testicular trauma. Find out more on this week's episode.
A look into the lives of crazy English soldier Jack Churchill, and Chicago OG Larry Hoover.
Jacob and Tim exchange some stories about the lives of old west outlaw Joaquin Murrieta and World War 2 soldier Daniel Inouye.
