>>1990 I like Dan. You're going to have a hard time finding people who actually like learning and discussing history on this board, because it would seem /int/ and /pol/ have already begun their wild shitposting
I've only listened to the first part of Blueprint of Armageddon. Why does he keep trying to make a connection to the Assassination of Franz Ferdinand and that of JFK? He spends the first 20 minutes talking about the assassination of JFK and whether or not it was a conspiracy on a podcast about WW1.
>>1511 Anyone listen to his newest "King of Kings" yet? How is it? Just finished episode IV of Wrath of the Khans today, going to finish the last one on Monday on the bus, then listen to King of Kings. Loved it so far, never knew the Mongols were so interesting. >you will never lay waste to some of the largest contemporary empires of that time despite being outnumbered >you will never systematically slaughter millions of inferior sedentary cattle >you will never dream of conquering the world with your steppe bros
>>3315 I haven't finished it yet, but the show is alright. However, I feel like the beginning is pretty unfocused and takes a lot from Judgement at Ninevah and Shield of the West. That's just my initial reaction, I really need to restart and listen to it all over again.
Anyone want some of the later episodes? I know that we should all support the show but I'd be glad to share some legacy episodes for those somehow unable to pay.
Too much americanism and emotion for me. The one on Munster was a nice episode, one of my favourite by him. It also made perfectly clear that his politics combined with being an American made him complete unfit to talk about anything but contemporary American history.
>>5908 I felt the same way about Wrath of Khans, though the general reaction to it seemed to be very positive. I was mainly disappointed that there was very little mention of the details involved in Temuchin's actual rise to becoming Chinggis Khan (which is highly interesting in and of itself) and the fact that some of the Mongol conquests like Song China, Delhi sultanate, Korea, Vietnam and Japan were either barely mentioned to or not mentioned at all.
Today's episode concerns one of recent history's most.. violent and .. bizarre episodes, something that defies all rational explanation. A hostile plane heist, over the fertile mountains of Kazakhstan. It all started with a simple … prisoner exchange.. with a guy-now my Kazakh's a little rusty, so I'm probably going to butcher the pronunciation- but he was called ... Masketta man. Some call him Mosquito Man ... HECK I've heard some people call him Masque et un man, regardless.. he delivers his bounty, several bound and hooded men, to a figure known to history ... as CIA
Recent records have been found .. purporting that this man's real name was Bill Wilson .. he was a .. little guy around about 150 pounds, five foot 8 inches .. had a habit of resting his thumbs in his belt loops. It was said, when roused to great emotion his tendons would.. pop out of his neck .. real hot head this guy..
So CIA, or Bill Wilson loads his cargo, of men, onto his plane. He opens the cargo door. AGIN REMEMBER THEY’RE HUNDREDS OF MILES IN THE AIR AT THIS POINT, he has his soldiers, one of them called Smee, the other Maimen, take his hooded hostages, and leans them out into the howling wind. NOW JUST IMAGINE THIS FOLKS ... you're in the dark, bag over your head, you hear this guy talking about flight plans, before you know it WOOSH, cabin doors open, sudden changes in air pressure probably making your ears pop, then he GRABS YOU, and puts your HEAD out the WINDOW, asking you all these questions "TELL ME ABOUT BANE, WHY DOES HE WEAR THE MASK" ... I CAN'T EVEN ... BEGIN TO IMAGINE....
... ... ... ...
I have here, a firsthand account of Wilson, written by one of his most loyal hired guns, QUOTE. HE WAS A BIG GUY, SO BIG HE SEEMED TO MAKE MEN AROUND HIM WHO YOU PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT WERE THE BIGGEST, SEEM INFINITESIMALLY SMALL. HE LIVED AND DIED FOR THE AGENCY, THIS WAS A MAN WHO'D SHOOT A MAN AND THROW HIM OUT OF A PLANE BEFORE HE LET SOMEONE INTERFERE WITH HIS FLIGHTPLAN.
