The basic format is the two hosts discussing weird and interesting stories from American history. One researches a different story each episode and tells it to the other, whose reaction is normally "...wait...he did what?!".
Episodes I've listened to so far are:
Ten Cent Beer Night The Rube The Two Daredevils and The Dolphin (probably the weirdest one so far).
Defo worth checking out.
Does anyone have any other recommendations?
I’ve also recently started listening to that.
The Jackson Cheese was strawberry floating crazy and also hilarious.
Their Trump episodes were good at showing just what a piece of gooseberry fool he is (as if we didn’t already know).
The Jackson Cheese is next on my list
I can just imagine what they're like with Trump
Wish I'd started listening to it before now, they played some UK dates a few weeks ago and would have been brilliant to see them covering local stuff.
Yeah (as Minty says) the UK ones were good, they are available as a separate podcast.
I’ve listened to them out of order but have started going back to the first ones. I listened to the Thanksgiving one last night, strawberry float me that “celebration” has horrific origins.

Nice one, thanks, I'll check out the UK ones and download the Reagan episodes. I know a lot of it is played for laughs (mostly due to Gar...eth's incredulous reactions), but some of the material is *fascinating*.
I've also been recommended Reply All and listened to one this morning. It follows a similar format as The Dollop, but covers explanations behind internet stories/viral content. Seems like a really good one as well.
