Welcome to a brand new fortnightly podcast where your unqualified host Jacinta attempts to explain an interesting bit of history and an even less qualified co-host Luke attempts to derail her.

Jacinta delves deep into a whole lot of history that might not even actually be true, thereby undermining the very premise of the show in the second episode. Classy!
