A Rogue Nazi Scientist? What do you think this is, a bad spy movie?

5/7/2017
More
The enemy of my enemy... is still my enemy but at least they can help me out for a bit. That was the attitude the Israelis had when they asked an ex-Nazi intelligence officer to help them out in the early 60s. In an adventure that reads more like a spy novel than a history book, Otto Skorzeny teamed up with the Mossad to stop a threat that would shift the balance of power in the Middle East. (Totally feel like I'm writing a blurb on the back of a spy thriller right now) Special thanks to...

Who would have thought the Angel of Death was French...

3/7/2017

So today I am joined by my father, Allen, and we have a podcast about the year long Reign of Terror during the French Revolution and the two men who orchestrated it. Maximilian Robespierre and Antoine Saint Just may have WANTED to bring about a better country, one where every man was equal and the aristocracy would never again take advantage of the poorer classes... but maybe guillotining 16,000 people isn't the best way to do that.
