Love it! I’ve listened to every podcast. Funny and real. Keep on pumping them out Josh!
Great stuff. Keep up the good work! A master work of weaving together history, humor, and foul language! Love every episode!
Josh lays down the law with the charm of Danny McBride. I would give it 6 stars if I could! But I can’t, so I didn’t.
This podcast reminds me of those humorous, informative demonstrations you find in historical Western towns. The demonstrations where a historian can make you laugh and learn at the same time, even if the humor in this podcast is a little more “adult” than the rest. The jokes land and the host always clarifies when he is not 100% sure on the information he has gathered, so it is not a podcast filled with hubris, which I like. You can tell the host enjoys learning about the events and characters he talks about, which in turn makes it all the more entertaining. Great to listen to while working and driving!
Fascinating tales of the old west. Exciting people and history. It’s a great podcast!
I love the story but why do you rush through it ? You need to slow down and let the story unfold. It’s not a race to the end. Frank
First of all some episodes are not safe for work or kids, but this podcast is amazing. I do a history podcast and I wish I could reach the level of insight and erudition that the host has displayed. He downplays himself but he is a deep researcher and thinker on everything he covers. The show is something is an absolute must listen to hear stories about the Wild West without the sugar coating. The host calls it as he sees it, and from what I’ve heard he sees the past very clearly.
Good concise histories with just enough dick jokes to keep even the most Swearengen-like ruffian satisfied.
Funny and factual, you can tell Josh does his research not only in the happenings of the Wild West but in lyrics for 90’s rap music. Put it together and somehow it works. He’s got an amazing gift as a storyteller and a great voice for telling these tales of courage, adventure, treachery and revenge. He brings you into the story much like the Hardcore History Podcast does and also allows you to fill in the blanks of disputed facts instead of saying “this is how it happened.” He paints an amazing picture. So cheers to a fellow Texan keeping the Wild West Spirit alive and kicking and taking us along the ride with him. I can’t wait for the next ep to drop. Hyaaaaa! Stagecoach Steve
This show has me coming back for more. Makes me laugh and has me doing some extra reading on his subjects.
Just discovered this podcast, I was searching American History and this popped up, with a name like Bloody Beaver, I had to check it out, great podcast!! Very funny, I laugh out loud while working with my headphones in, I get funny looks all the time!! Would highly recommend!!
Tons of great information in this. He also adds some humor to keep us all engaged. Well done!
A fantastic and fun way to learn about Wild West history. Feels like learning about the Wild West from a stand-up comedian! Keep up the great work!
I am a lover of American history but never thought much about the Wild West until now. This podcast is a fun and fascinating look at frontier times. The host tells remarkably terrible/amazing (depending on your perspective) jokes, it’s truly delightful! Listen to the Bass Reeves one first! FIVE STARS!
Keep up the great work These are the things I have Always liked looking into And hearing about...... What about a Bonnie and Clyde podcast?
Love this guys radio voice first of all! Was hooked immediately. He disclaims he’s not very funny, but I beg to differ. Also he’s a great natural story teller! Just finished the first episode - super well researched, entertaining, and well told. Makes you feel like he’s reading a story book to you; Paints a great picture in your mind. About to click play on ep 2. Already can’t wait for more!!
Dude, fn love it, you killed it and did your research on Brushy Bill Roberts, it’s about time someone did it right, finally. I need to put this out, too many out there who believe his retarded garbage
