It's the history you'll wish you'd learned in school.
Did you know that at for a brief period, Pepsi owned the sixth-largest fleet of warships in the world? No, of course you don't....because you were busy memorizing the exact date and time of the Boston Tea Party, just like the rest of us. And to think - you COULD have been writing that report on the repeated theft of composer Joseph Haydn's severed head....if only you'd known about it at the time!
But it's better late than never, so let hosts Adam Azra'el and Anthony Staten take you on a wild ride through some of history's more bizarre and obscure bits! Impress that special someone with your weird knowledge on your first date. Go back and turn in a way cooler paper to your high school history teacher. Join an online forum for history buffs and give 'em the old razzle-dazzle. Honestly, we couldn't care less what you do with this information....that's your business.
The Lesser Stories began as a now-defunct podcast called Really Useful Knowledge, which was the exact same podcast but without the flash and with a name that wasn't as good. See? You're already learning some history. Our history.
