Deanna Listens: Fauxthentic History

Deanna Listens is a monthly feature on the first Monday of every month, which I FORGOT to do again this month, I created to showcase some of my favorite podcasts. Today I am talking about a little podcast I love called Fauxthentic History.

Fauxthentic History is hosted by Holly Frey (Stuff you Missed in History, Full of Sith) and Bryan Young (Full of Sith). This podcast is a fun one because they talk about fictional history of different pop culture, nerdom, etc. So you know a lot of Star Wars, Star Trek, Princess Bride and anything in between is going to be covered. I love this podcast because it's just a fun one to listen to. The episodes are also pretty short, so they are easier to just binge listen to a ton, which I do.

So I want to pull out a few of my favorite episodes so far and to really show what type of content they put out on this podcast:

They also have like the best logo! I love it!

For this podcast to work they pull any information they can on the subject they are talking about. So source materials could be comics, book or movies, but they really don't fabricate anything that they talk about on this podcast. It all comes from whatever source material is available. In regards to Star Wars Legends VS. Canon books, they do mention that there are some legends that say "this." I think it's a cool way to handle it. 

This is a fun podcast and if you like to learn more about the lore of your favorite fandoms, I really suggest to give this one a listen!

Happy Reads Everyone!
