History Bites

Soon, thanks to the power of the intrawebs, the first collection of History Bites episodes will be mine, all mine!

I’m not sure exactly what’s contained in the first collection — one downfall of the listings. If it’s just season one, I’ll be quite happy as that includes several of my all-time favourites:

  • Dead Philosopher Walking : SOCRATES 399 BC
  • Charlemagne : 800 AD
  • Pure Vandalism : VANDALS 455 AD
  • Bjarney & Friends : VIKINGS 998 AD

These shows are not only pure comedy gold, they’re possibly the most perfect fusion of history and entertainment ever made with some wonderful characterizations (Charlemagne played as if he’s the Mighty Arnold is just too delicious).

    Nothing about me being a vampire. And a Gothic one at that on Halloween. The shame.
