Did you hear the one about the guy who survived the sinking of the Titanic by drinking whiskey? Or what about the man who survived the atom bombing of Hiroshima, only to take a train to Nagasaki and survive the bombing of that city as well?
In the spirit of storytelling, Quick and Dirty Tips and Picador have teamed up to bring you Unknown History, a new podcast for history buffs and anyone who loves a great, quirky tale. (Our favorite? The Mysterious Disappearance of Agatha Christie.)
The show is hosted by bestselling author and historian Giles Milton, whose newest book, WHEN HITLER TOOK COCAINE AND LENIN LOST HIS BRAIN, is also the basis for the Unknown History podcast.
Since its launch earlier this month, the podcast has already been ranked in the top 50 on iTunes and even reached #3 in the iTunes Education category!
