Rescued from the footnotes, archives and passing references, each episode explores what almost happened and explains why it didn't.

Dutch Leonard is not a very common name, except for in Major League Baseball. There have been two of them, both pitchers and both with some crazy stories. One tended to trend toward the good, the other a bit more mischievous. Whether it was feuding with Ty Cobb, claiming Tris Speak was throwing games or just getting suspended, alot, the Dutch Leona…
 
Of all the WW2 spies who stole atomic secrets from the Manhattan Project, none were as successfully, or as unassuming as George Koval. He was a kid from Iowa who played baseball, and loved Walt Whitman’s poetry. But he was also from a family of Russian immigrants who spent years in the Soviet Union in the 1930s and was trained as a spy for the prot…
 
From his earliest days Winston Churchill was an extreme risk taker and he carried this into adulthood. Today he is widely hailed as Britain's greatest wartime leader and politician. Deep down though, he was foremost a warlord. Just like his ally Stalin, and his arch enemies Hitler and Mussolini, Churchill could not help himself and insisted on pers…
 
For the last third of the nineteenth century, Union General Stephen Gano Burbridge, also known as the “Butcher of Kentucky,” enjoyed the unenviable distinction of being the most hated man in Kentucky. From mid-1864, just months into his reign as the military commander of the state, until his death in December 1894, the mere mention of his name trig…
 
Of all the crazy, weird and strange 80’s Wax Pack baseball cards, there are a handful that stand out. This week we tell the story of one of the oddest of the bunch. Glenn Hubbard loved snakes, so when he saw one on-field before a game in Philadelphia. Little did he know that picture would go from being a personal keep-sake to one of the most memora…
 
He was young, handsome, highly educated in the best English schools, a respected professional, and a first-class amateur athlete.

His name was Montague Druitt—also known as “Jack the Ripper.” Druitt’s handiwork included the slaughter of at least five women of ill rep…
 
The United States is fraught with angst, fear, anger, and divisiveness due to our current political climate. How did we get here? And where are we headed?

Not many people have heard about Alfred Hubbard but he was one of the most intriguing people from the 20th Century.

He would soon publicly demonstrate t…
 
Come with me on a voyage around the world with the officers and crew of the ship Columbia.

Almost by accident, the Columbia became the first American shi…
 
For Boston Marathon weekend, we're dropping a few of our favorite past episodes into the feed as bonuses.

The Norman’s conquering of the known world was a phenomenon unlike anything Europe had seen up to that point in history.

Author John Vampatella joins us to talk about his new book, The Forgotten Game, which chronicles Game 5 of the 2004 ALCS.

John was a blast to talk…
 
Of all the radioactive elements discovered at the end of the nineteenth century, it was radium that became the focus of both public fascination and entrepreneurial zeal. This unlikely element ascended on the market as a desirable item – a present for a queen, a prize in a treasure hunt, a glow-in- the-dark dance costume and soon became a supposed c…
 
How deeply was the Confederate Secret Service involved in the plot to kill Abraham Lincoln? Did the Confederate Secret Service assassinate Abraham Lincoln?” There are some strong indications that it did, but the facts uncovered in researching this question only raise more questions than they answer.

Arthur Kingsley Porter was a celebrity professor, who worked in the shadow of the Harvard secret court that purged the campus of gay students and faculty.

Although now largely forgotten outside Russia, Boris Savinkov was famous, and notorious, both at home and abroad during his lifetime, which spans the end of the Russian Empire and the establishment of the Soviet Union. A complex and conflicted individual, he was a paradoxically moral revolutionary terrorist, a scandalous novelist, a friend of epoch…
 
It seems like almost yesterday that streetcars in Cape Girardeau stopped rolling through the city. On August 10, 1934, the last car was driven into the north Main Street barns at 9:30 p.m., signaling the end of a community service that had been available for 29 years.על ידי Frank Nickell

You wouldn’t believe how these ninety-year-old WWII heroes come alive when you put a rifle in their hands. Andrew Biggio, a young U.S. Marine, returned from combat in Afghanistan and Iraq full of questions about the price of war. He went looking for answers from those who had survived the costliest war of all—WWII veterans. His book, the Rifle: Com…
 
Eleventh-century Spain was a violent borderland of Christian-Muslim bloodshed, but on the eve of the First Crusade, the two religions cooperated as much as they warred in Iberia. And who else to capture the heart of medieval Spain than Charlton Heston himself? Based on the real-life Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, who lived from 1043 to 1099 and was protago…
 
Baseball is full of traditions, good or bad, that as a fan, you’ve got to take in stride if you go to a ballgame. There’s singing (the anthem, Take Me Out to the Ballgame), there’s strange people in costumes (the Chicken, the Phanatic), there is trickery (keep a decoy ball to throw back if you catch an opponent’s HR), and there’s more singing if yo…
 
What happens when you cast Milla Jovovich as Joan of Arc, take away her combat finesse she displayed in the Resident Evil series, but have her embody the fringe historical theory that the Maid of Orleans did not follow God’s orders to liberate France but was actually a schizophrenic? Why 1999’s the Messenger, of course! Guest Steve Guerra joins Sco…
 
Since the earliest days of the Bay Colony, prisoners of war have been held on the islands of Boston Harbor. This week, we’re sharing two classic stories of the Harbor Islands POWs from past episodes. One of them is about the Confederate prisoners who arrived at Fort Warren on Georges Island in the fall of 1861, fresh from the field of battle in Nor…

The most famous large-scale sea rescue in history is the Dunkirk evacuation. Here nearly 400,000 Allied soldiers were surrounded by the German army in 1940, and Winston Churchill said, "the whole root and core and brain of the British Army" had been stranded at Dunkirk and seemed about to perish or be captured. But they were rescued off the coast o…
 
This week we get started with some of the crazy baseball history that was made in the past week, we rank players who have been nicknamed Bull, we remember a wild game at Wrigley from 2001 in which the 7th inning stretch singer got tossed form the game (by Angel Hernandez surprise, surprise) but that wasn’t even the weirdest thing to happen in that …
 
Lope Martín was a little-known 16th century Afro-Portugese pilot known as the "Columbus of the Pacific"--who against all odds finished the final great voyage of the Age of Discovery. He raced ahead of Portugal’s top navigators in the notoriously challenging journey from the New World to Asia and back, only to be sentenced to hanging upon his return…
 
Unlike Spain, Sicily had been relatively quiet during the opening years of the Second Punic War. That all changed in 216 BC with the death of Hiero II, King of Syracuse. Staunchly pro-Roman, Hiero had feared that his grandson and natural heir, Hieronymus, would lead Syracuse to disaster. His greatest fears were justified - shortly after the old kin…
 
Conspiracy theories have always swirled around Brown Brothers Harriman, the oldest and one of the largest private investment banks in the United States, and not without reason. As America of the 1800s was convulsed by devastating financial panics every twenty years, the Brown Brothers Harriman quietly went from strength to strength, propping up the…
 
Part two of our outstanding interview with former Padres & Giants pitcher, Dave Dravecky. He tells some crazy stories about the always off the wall Gaylord Perry, his most memorable mound visit and pitching at the icebox that was Candlestick Park. Dave was nice enough to stick around and play a round of Wax Pack Heroes with us as well, opening some…
 
Humans love to drink. We have a glass or two when bonding with friends, celebrating special occasions, releasing some stress at happy hour, and definitely when coping with a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. But when you consider the consequences—hangovers, addiction, physical injury, and more—shouldn't evolution have taught us to avoid it? And yet, our…
 
Joe Bagley is the archaeologist for the city of Boston, and his new book Boston’s Oldest Buildings and Where to Find Them catalogs 50 of the oldest houses, stores, churches, and even lighthouses that still stand here in the Hub. In this episode, he tells us how it’s still possible to rediscover an unknown house from the 1700s in the North End in 20…
 
Scandinavia has always been a world apart. For millennia Norwegians, Danes, Finns, and Swedes lived a remote and rugged existence among the fjords and peaks of the land of the midnight sun. But when they finally left their homeland in search of opportunity, these wanderers—including the most famous, the Vikings—would reshape Europe and beyond. Thei…
