Praise for Dead Ideas

“Alive with frivolity.” – The Lesser Bonapartes

“I love these glorious nerds, they talk about things that I can’t talk about with other people because nobody has any idea what I’m talking about. THANK YOU FOR EXISTING AND CASTING PODS.” – Grandpa Jenkins

“I love your podcast. After laughing at loud at your Dan Carlin impression, I was so overcome with admiration that I just had to write in. You and your friends are hilarious and you always deliver good information. It’s a podcast with a bite. Also, your intro/outro music is perfection. I feel like I’m walking into PeeWee’s Playhouse every time I start a new episode.” – Jacob.

“Funny podcast which doesn’t take itself too seriously. Also 10/10 for beer plugs” – Thomas Coll

“Deep within the closet old ideas are examined in the light of our 21st century’s politically correct world.” – Miss Jaynee

“You had me at ‘Bird Fetus'” – Gagnorcow

“A room full of weirdos talking about strange stuff. It’s like being in your own living room with your friends.” – Loomer555

“Really informative with solid research and impeccable delivery. A must listen!” – Big Duq6

“History with humor and beer lots of beer. Very enjoyable way to pass a few hours and maybe even learn something.” – Meechta
