We’re Not F***ing Historians is a brand-new comedy podcast which offers the ultimate alternative guide to Irish history with a couple of facts and plenty of craic!
Each week, critically acclaimed writer and comedian, Shane Todd, and celebrated YouTuber, filmmaker and author, Hazel Hayes, delve into the history books to find the funniest tales to better understand the island they call home from both sides of the border.
With the pair delving into Ireland’s deep-rooted connections with Britain, North America, and the rest of the world, the podcast is equally a comforting slice of home for the Irish who are away from home and an opportunity for listeners from all backgrounds to learn about The Emerald Isle’s vibrant past – perhaps not from actual experts, but with actual laughs (and authentic accents).
From industry-leading podcast production company Stak, makers of Bernie: Who Killed the Prince of Soho? and Football Ramble, We’re Not F***ing Historians is history done differently. What Shane and Hazel lack in knowledge, they make up for in enthusiasm, wit and truly universal conversations.
Questions answered in We’re Not F***ing Historians include… Who was the little-known Irishman at the heart of the American independence movement? How did a 17th-century female pirate earn Queen Elizabeth’s respect? And more broadly, what does it mean to call such a humble, historical and beautiful isle home?
We’re Not F***ing Historians launches tomorrow (12 October) and is available every Tuesday on Apple, Spotify, Acast and all podcast providers.
