Welcoming The Weekend With Katie Nolan On Drunk History

Welcoming The Weekend With Katie Nolan On Drunk History


Estimated Reading Time: 2 Minutes

You made it!  It’s finally the end of another work week.  Sure, the weekend has lost a bit of its luster lately but no work is still no work even if it is still just sitting at home doing nothing.  At least this nothing has no responsibilities tied to it.  I mean unless you have kids or a family or responsibilities.  

If you haven’t ever seen Drunk History the first thing you need to do is reevaluate your entire life and all of the choices you have made that got you here.

According to a quick little Google Search: “The passage of time often has a way of rewriting history. So does a few drinks. The half-hour series “Drunk History” — based on the award-winning web series — shows how by re-enacting famous events in history as told by inebriated storytellers. Each episode takes a tour of a U.S. city to explore stories and people from its rich past. Those stories are related in often-confusing ways by drunken narrators and performed by an all-star cast that includes Jack Black, Lisa Bonet, Connie Britton, Michael Cera, Bill Hader, Kevin Nealon, Bob Odenkirk and Winona Ryder. Figures such as Teddy Roosevelt, Patty Hearst, Billy the Kid, Al Capone, and Lewis and Clark are profiled, as are seminal moments like the Battle of the Alamo, Watergate, and the Scopes Monkey Trial.”

If you HAVE seen it then good on you.  This episode is an in-depth, hard hitting, pull no punches exposé on the infamous 1919 Black Sox Scandal.  If you do not know about this you are in for a treat.  If you do know about this, you are still in for a treat because it’s just Katie Nolan describing the events as they absolutely 100%, without question occurred.  Dialogue and all.  So sit back, relax and forget about the hellscape that is our lives for 6 plus minutes and learn a little history dummy.

Josh grew up in the midwest and upon graduating from the University of Iowa he wanted to see the world. After 4 years in Jacksonville he decided he was cultured enough and moved on to Birmingham England (known to the locals as the Detroit of the UK) and then west to San Francisco before settling in NYC. He pays his bills working in finance making sure the 1% remains on top. When he is not selling his soul and unable to look himself in the mirror, he spends his time writing mean things about sports while his dog, Sweet Dee, silently judges from her spot on the couch. He is very biased and never wrong. He would also like to thank Rotowire for never changing their NBA League Pass and MLB.TV passwords from that year when he was an NBA Beat Writer for the Nuggets for some reason.
