The Podcast Network currently produces the following podcasts.
If you like your history served with a heavy dose of dirty humour and bad language, check us out.
THE BULLSHIT FILTER
The Bullshit Filter launched in February 2017. Instead of talking about ancient or 20th century history, Cam & Ray are going to tackle some of the big headline issues of today. Keeping their unique style of going deep on facts, providing balance and different perspectives on the main players and their motivations, and combining it with the sense of humour of a fifteen-year-old private school dropout, the boys are going to help you get your head around the issues that take up the headlines. So far we’ve covered the Syrian civil war, gun control and the war on drugs. Can your fake news make it through our BULLSHIT FILTER?
A COLD WAR
We launched our Cold War podcast in March 2016. Hosts Cameron Reilly and Ray Harris Jr are trying to reveal the actual facts behind the confrontation between the USSR and the USA that nearly lead to the end of the human race. Did it really end in 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Empire? Or are the underlying causes still operating today? This is another history podcast that combines attention to detail with lots of laughs.
We launched Life Of Alexander The Great in December 2014. Hosts Cameron Reilly and Ray Harris Jr tell the story of the greatest empire builder in human history. This is another history podcast that combines attention to detail with lots of laughs. After Alexander dies (spoilers!), we continued with the life after Alexander, also known as “The Wars Of The Successors” or “The Wars Of The Diadochi”. Learn how Alexander’s massive empire fell into 40 years of bloodshed in a Macedonian civil war.
We launched Life Of Caesar in December 2013. Hosts Cameron Reilly (co-founder of The Podcast Network, co-host of the much loved Napoleon Bonaparte Podcast) and Ray Harris Jr (host of the also much-loved WWII Podcast) have joined forces to tell the story of one of history’s most famous personalities. This is a history podcast the likes of which you’ve never heard before. When we were forced to kill off Big Julie, we continued the story with his adopted son, AUGUSTUS CAESAR.
After the assassination of Julius Caesar, his adopted son and heir, the 18 year old Octavian, was thrust into a sudden position of wealth… and a new name. But it didn’t come with any power. Faced with opponents like Mark Antony, Cicero, Brutus and Cassius, what kind of chance did this inexperienced country bumpkin have? Somehow he managed to defeat everyone and manage the final dissolution of the old, corrupt and ineffective Roman Republic. This is his story.
Starting in November 2004, with the first podcast EVER produced in Australia (and it was also the first podcast ever recorded on Skype anywhere in the world), Cameron Reilly produced over 400 podcasts on technology, science, philosophy and politics. The show was originally called “G’Day World” and then re-branded to “No Illusions”. Check out the archives for interviews with everyone from Noam Chomsky to Ray Kurzweil, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Leo Sayer.
Join the President of the International Napoleonic Society, Sir J. David Markham, and Cameron Reilly, as they walk you through the entire history of Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of the French. Was he a warmongerer or the first self-made man?
Produced between 2005 and 2008, this is one of the original history podcasts, has 60 episodes, almost 100 hours of content.
On this podcast series, Ray and Cam made our way through Cam’s 2011 book “The Three Illusions” – a guide to using a basic understanding of science and some common sense to rid yourself of anger, guilt, anxiety, fear and emotional pain. In five episodes, we examine the illusions of free will, time and identity.
