Episode 015: Красивая женщина

This week’s guest…Dakota Poots! He’s back again!

Dakota joins Claire to act as commentator to the things in history that just really piss her off: Andrew Jackson’s Bank War and The Destruction of the Library of Alexandria. Along the way they learn that the things they thought to be true were just shrouded in mythos. Join this historical romp with lots of sound effects I found time to add. Wow!
