ABOUTEver hear a story in the news and think to yourself "I'd love to understand the backstory and the facts about that"?
Well that's what we do on this series. We dissect some of the biggest stories in the news to try to get to the core of what's going on. No bias. No agenda. No bullshit. Just a brutal examination of the facts and the history behind them - for as long as it takes. Our first series was the background of the Syrian Civil War. We've also looked at the War On Drugs and the arguments for and against Gun Control. The current series is for subscribers only. You can become a subscriber here for as little as 99c a month.
We also have a free weekly news show (BFTN aka Bullshit Filter The News) that's less complicated. We pick a few major stories that seem more complicated that the sound bites and we try to look into them a bit further.
The Opinionated One
Cameron Reilly was a podcasting pioneer. In 2004 he launched G'Day World, the first Australian podcast ever. He was also the co-founder of The Podcast Network, the world's first podcast network, back in early 2005. He likes reading about history and science, playing chess and cheesy B movies. By day he runs Motherlode, a marketing agency in Brisbane, Australia.
The Nice One
Ray has a degree in history from James Madison University. He lives in Virginia with his family and lots of snakes, and made his podcasting bones as host of the very popular WWII Podcast. While technically not a midget, at age 50 Ray is still able to get on the children's rides at Disneyland. He drinks his own limoncello.
