What it's about
The goal of the Dangerous History Podcast is to help you learn the past so that you can better understand the present and prepare for the future.
The Dangerous History Podcast takes CJ’s countless hours spent as a Professional History Dork and boils all the most interesting and/or important stuff he has learned into podcast episodes, combining education with entertainment with the ultimate goal of empowerment.
This is the history the Establishment would rather you not know.
