Behind the Bastards
There’s a reason the History Channel has produced hundreds of documentaries about Hitler but only a few about Dwight D. Eisenhower. Bad guys (and gals) are eternally fascinating. Behind the Bastards dives in past the Cliffs Notes of the worst humans in history and exposes the bizarre realities of their lives. Listeners will learn about the young adult novels that helped Hitler form his monstrous ideology, the founder of Blackwater’s insane quest to build his own Air Force, the bizarre lives of the sons and daughters of dictators and Saddam Hussein’s side career as a trashy romance novelist.

"It's one of my favorites! Very funny but also well-researched. It does a good job of telling history by looking at grifters and provocateurs. Some of the subjects are people you probably know (Jacob Wohl, for example) and others you might only know about if you're a history buff, like Nancy Reagan's astrologer. "
