Coffee With Jeff #142: The Christine Jorgensen Story

29 mins - Published Sun, Jan 14, 2018.

These days, everyone is having their sex changed. Bruce becoming Caitlyn wasn’t that big of a deal, but back in the early 1950:s, things were different. So different, in fact, that it would require a trip to Denmark for a man to become a woman.

Christine Jorgensen was a person who was born a man and was the first person to become widely known in the United States for having sex reassignment surgery. Today I have her story!

Gordon's Gun Closet #22: Pirate Guns

30 mins - Published Thu, Sep 21, 2017.

It was Talk Like a Pirate Day this week here in the USA. ‘Tis a silly day, but we thought that since the latest episode of The History Files (#90) was also about pirates, we’d better do a companion show here at the gun closet. Special thanks to friend of the show Jim Wingren for indulging my request for a children’s show type stinger at the top of the episode.


The History Files #90: Pirates

48 mins - Published Fri, Sep 8, 2017.

We’re back… and we brought pirates! Actually, that’s probably not such a great idea, what with all the stealing and pillaging and slow-matches in the beard and buckets of burning sulphur. Of course that’s only if we brought Edward Teach, but you get the idea. This episode was recorded live in front of a very groggy audience on a Sunday morning at the Brass Screw Confederacy Steampunk festival in Pt. Townsend, Washington on June 11, 2017. We had a great time revelling in all the pirate stuff and hope you enjoy our little presentation.

What's in a Name? #7: Bowler Hat

14 mins - Published Thu, May 4, 2017.

Famously worn by the likes of Charlie Chaplin, and Bat Masterson, the bowler is a hat with pizzazz. It was also worn by super action guy John Steed. It’s too bad James Bond didn’t also customarily wear one; this being episode 007 and all.

Robert Algeo and Josh Wodarz tackle most important issue of the day – Pokemon Go! Yes, yes, it’s another thing about Pokemon Go, but you know, with our irreverent spin on things. By irreverent, we mean Robert making fun of it and Josh laughing. Yep, that’s how we roll. (more…)
