Mikey Robins and Paul Wilson launch Heroes and Howlers podcast
DM Podcasts, part of Diamantina Media, is set to release a new podcast hosted by comedian and media personality, Mikey Robins, and historian, Paul Wilson.
Heroes and Howlers comes out on February 16, and will be a “quizzical look at some of history’s quirkiest moments”.
Last year, Robins released a book, Reprehensible, which explores “polite histories of bad behaviour”.
The podcast, meanwhile, will explore how some of history’s key milestones “have been shaped by serendipity, moments of madness and even the downright banal”.
“This podcast revels in such circumstance: the cock ups, the mishaps and the bizarre twists of fate that have changed the course of mankind – sometimes tragic, sometimes comical, sometimes just plain rude,” publicity for the podcast said.
The first episode will be about the Fourth Crusade and titled ‘The Sacking of Constantinople’, and future episodes will explore the Cold War, WW1 and gout.
Other DM Podcasts titles include The Betoota Advocate, Chat 10 Looks 3, and So Dramatic!
