Garbled Twistory: A US History Podcast told through elections!

Garbled Twistory is a podcast that’s primary objective is to humanize history, through humorizing history. It re-tells history in a way that places special emphasis on the most unusual elements and indiscriminately injects F.U.N by the bucketload! The first season’s focus is US History: as told by all of its presidential elections and all of its presidential election candidates! There will be biographical episodes for every presidential candidate, episodes for every election, and episodes for the years in between them! Get Excited! Expect a new episode to pop up here every Sunday! You can listen on iTunes, Stitcher, many a place! We also have a Facebook Page!
