Our Fake History

Our Fake History

Sebastian Major plucks apocryphal stories from the annals of history and attempts to shake the truth out of them in this entertaining bi-weekly podcast. Subjects range from unlikely but persistent myths - Was Queen Elizabeth actually a man? Was Shakespeare the real author of the plays? - to widely-accepted anecdotes - Did Nero fiddle while Rome burned? Did the Aztecs think Cortes was a God? The evidence for and against is broken down in these conversational audio essays, read by Major, who by the way is super into all of this (Sample: "In 774, guess who becomes King of the Lombards? Our old buddy, Charlamagne!!") and his dorkarific enthusiasm is catching. For history-lovers, a find.
