  • People are talking about how they'd love to hear you do a history podcast, Conan.

  • We might have mixed feelings about that, and you just kind of moonlighting with another podcast.

  • But other than that does that is that something you'd be interested in?

  • Well, first of all, I'd like to point out that they didn't say in addition to it could mean they want this one to end.

  • Oh, no.

  • And they want something with a little more fiber in it.

  • You know, a little more protein.

  • I I always go to the negative right away.

  • When someone says, Hey, you know, you'd be really good at I think you mean you don't like the thing I'm doing now.

  • That's an interesting concept.

  • I am a history buff.

  • That's probably, uh, come across during our ramblings on the podcast the last couple of years.

  • I also I'm a consumer of history podcasts.

  • I've said this before, but I absolutely love Dan Carlin's hardcore history on I recommend that podcast.

  • It's one of my absolute favorites.

  • Um, that guy tells a great tale, and I've learned so much from listening to Dan Carlin and then I actually wrote him a fan letter on.

  • I typed it.

  • So no, you know this.

  • I have an old cookie typewriter and I typed him a fan letter, and then, uh, this is about two years ago.

  • And then I think, like a month later, I get this letter in the mail and it's from Dan Carlin and I'm jumping around the kitchen going.

  • Dan Carlin wrote me back, and my wife's like, What is your problem?

  • Three other one I've been listening to recently is, you know, I just took a long car trip with my kids.

  • We didn't wanna fly.

  • We wanted to be safe.

  • So we took this long car ride and we were in the car together and we started listening to this podcast.

  • That's by a guy named Mike Duncan.

  • And it's called Revolutions.

  • And this guy is thorough.

  • He is very thorough.

  • And I think the point I'm trying to make is, uh, when people say, Hey, Conan, you should do a history podcast.

  • I've listened to really people that should be doing history podcasts like Dan Carlin and Mike Duncan and man Mike Duncan.

  • Uh, he did one on the English Civil war, and it's It gets so complicated and it's fascinating.

  • But there's like a whole bunch of episodes explaining how incredibly complicated it all waas to the point where I thought, Can't just skips, um stuff and just get to the battles.

  • But then he did one of the French Revolution.

  • I'm listening to it.

  • I've listened to 10 episodes.

  • They're like, 40 minutes each.

  • He hasn't even gotten to the Revolution yet.

  • That's the title of the show.

  • And, yeah, and, uh, but he really takes his time and it's brilliant.

  • He's I give it up for Mike Duncan.

  • I am not dissing him in any way.

  • He's a brilliant guy, but man, very intelligent, and he really knows his stuff, and I think that's where I get intimidated.

  • That's where I think I know some stuff about history, and I can maybe shuck and jive and bounce around, and but it's not going to be credible.

  • What era would you start with, man?

  • That's a really good question.

  • Let's have a little taste before we say, What era would I start with?

  • What about this?

  • Look at my team.

  • I've got Sona who doesn't know about anything that happened before in sync, formed.

  • And then I've got Gourlay.

  • Now, I know you know some stuff, but you kind of know some stuff.

  • This is my team.

  • So keep in mind whatever podcast we do, it's gonna be the three of us doing a history podcast.

  • And we're going to say, Hey, Conan O'Brien here today.

  • And we're talking about the Russian Revolution White An incredible revolution.

  • And I'm here with my team of history experts, son, Um obsession God s own a your you know about the Russian Revolution, right?

  • They had a revolution in Russia.

  • Was that a long time ago?

  • Yes.

  • Well, you know, it's all relative, but yes, it's sort of broke out during World War One.

  • Okay?

  • Many people say it was ah, tottering regime in World War One was going so badly that it pushed it over the edge.

  • But yeah, you know, 1917, I think, is a 1918 around, then those air Russian Revolution years.

  • I stopped paying attention right after you said World War one.

  • I'm so sorry.

  • Did you say what what happened?

  • It was tottering.

  • I heard the word tottering.

  • Yes, Yes.

  • Okay.

  • See, this is how it would go now, Gourlay, you would jump in every now and then.

  • You know your stuff.

  • That's the one where they're all a bunch of wooden dolls that lived inside each other.

  • Exactly with the babushkas.

  • Yes.

  • Now we're talking.

  • What happened was in Russia in the early 20th century.

  • Uh, basically, everyone was for forced to live inside of someone else, and they were all made of wood.

  • And so this became Now that that's how it waas for hundreds and hundreds of years.

  • But then, as you get into the 20th century and technology is improving, the little doll the smallest stall at the you know it.

  • The very center doesn't wanna live inside hundreds of thousands of other dolls.

  • And and those other dolls don't wanna live inside.

  • And so the dolls start to rebel, and suddenly they burst open and all the Babushka dolls come out and they're fighting with each other.

  • Okay?

  • Yeah, I'm loving this podcast.

  • I think this is a green light.

  • I want to know when the Russian mail order bride system started.

  • I'm more interested in that than this.

  • Like revolution you're talking about at the time, Sona.

  • They use telegraphs.

  • And so what would happen was that they would post a picture of a babushka lady made of wood, and someone in the United States would see it in their local newspaper.

  • And they'd send a telegraph and say, I like that babushka, that one right there send her to me.

  • I live in.

  • I live on Delancey Street in Sioux Falls.

  • I'm enclosing $4.15.

  • Send the Babushka doll to me and I will have sex with it.

  • What?

  • Top of the charts?

  • Apple podcast.

  • Three months running.

  • Yeah, you know, the promise of the podcast would be you'll no less.

  • Then you did before.

  • This podcast will actively make you stupid.

  • So then, of course, Rasputin enters the scene.

  • Oh, he had a big dick.

  • That's what I know about rescued Jesus, didn't he?

  • That's the thing that I know.

  • That's the kind of history I think people are interested in Is that he has very large Penis.

  • Well, that's never been confirmed.

  • But it was a, uh a.

  • That was a rumor about Rasputin who was said to Rasputin, of course, the mad monk who had the ear of these arena and many people believe helped alienate her even further from the Russian people and helped foment the revolution.

  • Many people thought that Rasputin had to go on.

  • In fact, he was assassinated.

  • But I digress anyway.

  • Yes.

  • Big, probably.

  • Big cock.

  • Yeah.

  • Wow, that's right up there with Catherine the Great.

  • Having a bunch of sex with horses.

  • Have you heard that?

  • No.

  • Yeah, but that's not true that I'm sure it's not true, but it's not.

  • Just hear about it.

  • Do you know Catherine the Great?

  • I've talked to the horses.

  • The Catherine the Great died long ago, but horses keep very good records.

  • I've read many horse diary from the period, and they all say no.

  • Didn't happen.

  • Um, and we take a fence that sounds like a bunch of bitter horses that weren't selected for the big night.

  • Yeah, that could kill you.

  • Having sex with a horse?

  • How could it not kill you?

  • You know you know what?

  • Here's the thing.

  • It's clear it's clear what our history podcast would be.

  • And if Dan Carlin's listening or Mike Duncan, my apologies, or to anyone in the true history community.

  • But this is what my history podcast would be like I would start the podcast by saying, uh, of course, Harry s.

  • Truman was faced with a very difficult decision.

  • Does he fire MacArthur because he has gone north of the parallel line in Korea and incurred the wrath of the Chinese government?

  • Or does he?

  • And then Sona would cut in and go did MacArthur of a big dick.

  • It and I go, What?

  • And then the next thing you know would be often running and maybe it would just I mean, that would be me trying the best I could.

  • I think that's pretty good.

  • And I say to Dan Carlin and Mike Duncan, Step it up a little, Yeah, you know, do we need all that information?

  • And also you can't talk about Rasputin without talking about his Penis, because that's what everybody knows about or that song.

  • Remember that song Rasputin, Lover of the Russian Queen?

  • There was a cat who really was gone.

  • It's that the lyric Yes, well, that's this week's episode of Big Dick History recovered the Russian Revolution Babushka dolls living inside each other, Rasputin, the old tripod, as they called him, Uh, next week, Milton Berle and the Rise of vaudeville?

  • Yeah.

  • Next week.

  • Milton Berle.

  • The rise of vaudeville on.

  • Then we'll be talking about a scandal involving best Truman.

  • Well, you don't wanna miss that one.
