conspiracies and explorers and U-boats, oh my

This ability to watch endless History Channel documentaries for free on Netflix might just be the end of me. The end of my active participation in the world around me. It might even be better than that "Stuff You Missed in History Class" podcast.*

*Because I DID miss a lot of stuff in history class. Well, not AP Euro, that was basically the best class ever. And not freshman year Ancient & Classical Civilizations. But junior year US History? With Mr. Nelson? Who talked about lettuce a lot and drank vodka from a coffee mug? Yeah, I missed a lot in that class. And 20th Century Dictators with Ms. Nuñez... talk about a waste of a semester. Oh sorry, tangent.


  1. Can you link to this awesome sounding podcast?

    Also, I heard "400 Years of the Telescope" was a quality documentary, though I didn't get to see it (and they don't seem to be set on replaying it anytime soon on PBS).

  2. You had a class called 20th Century Dictators in high school? You remain one of the coolest people I know.
