Also, if anyone's catching up with The Dollop and picking and choosing which episodes they listen to, the Ronald Reagan 2 partner is a must.

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. :lol:

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 :D

I can just imagine what they're like with Trump :dread:

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. :dread: :dread:

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.

Yeah Reply All is great too, the subjects covered has definitely got more eclectic as times gone on.

I've recently started listening to Redhanded and I'm pretty addicted.

The latest Reply All about a missing hit pop song is an instant classic.

A really good episode for first time listeners too.

I read the blurb for the episode and didn't expect much but ended up loving it

Can't believe I didn't know this thread existed. :shifty:

The Dollop is classic, I've listened to a few. Here's my recommendations:

72 - The Hanford Radiation Nightmare
167 - The History of NY Sanitation
169 - Disco Demolition Night
193 - When The Cars Came
194 - The Girl Watchers
270 - Forgotten Fleet Walker
323 - 1908 New York to Paris Car Race
361 - The Truck Nuts War
362 - Moving Day
404 - Jan Pieterszoon Coen

I haven't listened to any for a bit, though, because the references to today's political situation in so many episodes was harming my mental state. It's a great show, I'll probably listen to more soon, but it can get heavy. It might be years before I can bring myself to listen to the Trump episodes.

Anyone else listen to My Brother My Brother & Me? The latest episodes have been brilliant. :lol:

If anyone here enjoys true crime, Chilluminati's series on Tommy Pitera is amazing.

I've started listening to The Magnus Archives. I like to listen to spooky horror stories sometimes and it's doing a good job of scratching the itch. Not the best writing but some of the stories have creeped me out enough to keep listening.

It's one of the best things that I've ever listened to. Spot on about first time listeners as well, I downloaded it for my daughter as well and she loved it :)

The Reagan episodes of The Dollop were incredible. I grew up while he was in power so all I really knew about him was the glimpses of him that I'd see on the news. Unbelievable. And blumin' Nancy!

I started listening to Grounded, new Louis Theroux one that he's doing during lockdown. It's just him interviewing people, but if you like his style then it's well worth checking out. First two episodes have been with Jon Ronson and Boy George.

I've been on something of a history podcast kick of late - I've long loved Hardcore History, but recently was introduced by the HH thread to Mike Duncan's History of Rome, which was truly wonderful, and his subsequent Revolutions podcast, which is also a really fantastic listen. In addition, I've taken to listening to the History of Byzantium, to continue where Duncan left off - it's also very good, but has a different feel due to the different creator.

Are there any other good history podcasts out there?
And is the British History podcast better than the English History one?

A work colleague listens to this and because it has an utterly stupid name, I refer to it as The Big Brother podcast.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I listened to that episode based on these recommendations.

Cheers lads, you are right, it was a great podcast. I was convinced it’d be a Barenaked Ladies b-side. :lol:

But Justin doesn't have any big brothers, only regular brothers. ;)

It's one of the few consistently bright spots in my world and I love it.

Have you ever tried any of their side podcasts? They're definitely worth a look.

I particularly recommend Wonderful, in which Griffin and his wife Rachel talk about all the little things in life that bring them joy, like hitting every green light while driving, Tamagotchis, and they're favourite music of the moment. It's a departure ( ;) ) from the boys' usual antics, but it's
pleasant listening and often very funny in its own right.

I personally have Wonderful to thank for introducing me to my favourite musician, possibly of all time, Miya Folick. :wub:
