Let me start out by saying that, not only does John not write his episode recaps, that prick doesn’t even read ‘em! I am hereby offering him $25.00 and the reader/listener that alerts him to this entry a $25 gift card to Del Taco (or similar). Just send us an email at HistoryDefeatsItself@gmail.com and it’s yours (ONLY 1 PRIZE WILL BE AWARDED).
Now let’s get on with the show: War! It’s almost as if it were a business model. America has been involved in a billion wars Read the rest of this entry »

War! Huh! Good God, y'all! What is it good for? Absolutely...lots if you're a power hungry, land grabbin' politician. On this episode John leads the crew in a discussion about American Wars. We talk history, you'll see if Kevin finally wins the Price is Right dining set, and we chat about Patrick Swayze. Because...Road House!

Let me start off by saying that I’m amazed at how close we got to the facts on this one-especially considering the source. This episode, more than most, makes me glad that Kevin came up with our disclaimer that we are not experts.
We had a lot of laughs while recording because apparently the three of us turn into giddy schmucks when we discuss anything related to sex. And you know what? We’re not sorry. Sex is awesome and every time Read the rest of this entry »

Birth control has been around for a lot longer than you might think. Humans have been trying to figure out how to enjoy sex without the worry of having a baby for thousands of years. On this episode of HDI Greg leads the way and educates us on the baby blocking methods that could have prevented any one of us from being here. Greg may have wished that Kevin and John's parents had used something 40-something years ago.

Your favorite triumvirate has been digging in a bit to do our part about social injustice, particularly when it comes to racial equity and equality. We have found the following websites to be informative and useful so we thought that we'd share.
Thank you for listening and your support,
Love and Kisses,

One of the great joys in my life is making my co-hosts uncomfortable. There are many ways to do it. One is recording with no pants on, another is drinking wine during the recording. (That really seemed to bother Greg.) I did not anticipate how out of sorts they would be talking about if the United States was past the point of reconciliation and if a divorce was a better option.
I get that it's not an easily digestible idea. Especially now. We recorded this before George Floyd's horrific murder. I'm not sure this episode happens Read the rest of this entry »

It's painfully obvious to all that we live in a divided country. Our two party political system has become so contentious that people are picking sides, digging in, and flipping the bird to the other side. Is it hopeless? Can we figure out a way to come together? Perhaps it's time to admit the Union didn't work and that it's time to break up. On this episode the crew attempts to answer the question: would we be better off if the United States split up? Join us for a rousing discussion that might get us all deported.

I was surprised that John thought an episode on witchcraft wouldn't get dark and include a bunch of horrible things. I mean...witches bro! Clearly he hasn't seen Hocus Pocus.
While murdering people for supposed witchcraft is not something we still do in this country it is clearly alive and well in other countries. I shouldn't be shocked I suppose. Every episode we do seems to be a reminder of how far we have not come as a people. But the fact that in some countries you can still accuse your neighbor Read the rest of this entry »

A lot of people don't know that John was in the Blair Witch Project. He. Was. So. Scared! Wanna learn about witches, warlocks, and witchcraft? John is leading this episode and we're talking black magic. Spells will be cast and lingams may be steamed. Grab your broom and hold on tight...cuz this is gonna get weird.

“Most of the evil in this world is done by people with good intentions.”
― T.S. Eliot
I guess I’m guilty of doing some evil. I sincerely went into my Mormon research with the best of intentions. I wanted to learn and share more about the religion. I have spent years hearing rumors about it’s inception Read the rest of this entry »
