Unsung Heroes

The History Guy podcast features two stories of unsung heroes! Exclusive to the podcast, the History Guy tells the story of Jerry Lawson, “the father of modern videogaming,” an early video game pioneer who rubbed shoulders with Steve Jobs and led the development of the Fairchild Channel F, the first video game console to feature removable game cartridges. The second is about Bessie Coleman, an African American and Indigenous woman whose passion for flying in the early years of flight technology led her to become one of the first women to earn a pilot’s license. Despite obstacles, Coleman became a respected and talented Barnstormer – an aerial performer and trick-flyer. Both are parts of history that deserve to be remembered.

True Stories of the Wild West

The History Guy podcast features two stories of the Wild West. First is the Bandit Dick Fellowes, a surprisingly successful stage coach robber who despite the ups and downs of his life always seemed to be defeated by his demons. Next is Soapy Smith, a very bad man who straddled the line between gangster and outlaw at the edge of the frontier. Both men and the lessons we can learn from them are history that deserves to be remembered.

Historical Cryptids

The History Guy podcast features two stories of historical cryptids. Between 1764 and 1767 a beast terrorized southern France, attacking grown men in a large area, and killed between 60 and 100 people. It is a story of mystery, culture, and a mysterious beast. Second is the story of Washington’s Eagle, an eagle bigger than either the bald or the gold eagle, first described by legendary ornithologist John James Audubon – but then lost to history. Both mysterious and captivating creatures are history that deserves to be remembered.

Aviation Accidents

Two stories of forgotten history surround Aviation Accidents. First, in 1966, an SR-71 “Blackbird” disintegrated at 78,000 feet. The pilot’s first thought was “No one could live through what just happened. Therefore, I must be dead.” Second is about a photo op in June 1966, involving an XB-70A No. 2, an F-4 Phantom, an F-5, a T-38 Talon, and an F-104 Starfighter, which went terribly wrong.
