i was never that bothered about history but i’m geeking out a lot more over it as my 20s wind down. think i’m turning into mark corrigan.
i’ve really got into the dan carlin freebies on itunes, so much so that i’m tempted to pay a patreon subscription for the first time ever. really like how he simplifies without dumbing down.
so yeah, i watched the death of yugoslavia series over winter and became kind of obsessed with that whole war (wars?), freaks my nut all that shit happened in 90s europe. scary. really want to visit sarajevo but i bet loads of nerds say that and i’d feel like a bit of a ghoul so i probably won’t.
also fascinated by the sicilian mafia and the “mattanza” war of the 80s and early 90s.
there’s a great black panther documentary that was on iplayer last year. would recommend.
for more 60s stuff the oj simpson documentary is really interesting and there’s a fuck tonne of nam docs on youtube.
been reading loads about the IRA again because why not?
the dollop is also amazing, and the episodes about huey long and the early LAPD had me crying with laughter.
so yeah, post things/links/articles about history you are interested in here, let’s try to make this an informative and broad thread for history dweebs.
also just realised mine are generally violence-oriented subjects, so feel free to add some more variation, quirkiness, scary door-esque shit.
