Our Fake History is a podcast about myths people think are history and history that might be hidden in myths. Have you ever heard that old story about how Napoleon shot the nose of the sphinx, or that Shakespeare was an illiterate fraud, or that Queen Elizabeth was actually a man? This show explores those tall-tales and tries to figure out what’s fact, what’s fiction, and what is such a good story it simply must be told. The podcast combines storytelling, humour, and historical detective work to create a show that is good for both history buffs and anyone who loves a good story.
Stirring stories, deep research, a good voice, and wonderful music to boot!100gkljhgdti Listener
