The Dirty Bits

A History, Society and Culture podcast
 8 people rated this podcast
The Dirty Bits Podcast is performed by Tawny Platis, a professional voice actor, who gives a casual -and hopefully comical- southern Californian retelling of the sexy, scandalous, and salacious stories from history your teacher probably left out. Whether it's Hans Christian Andersen's masturbation obsession, Jack Parsons bizarre mixture of NASA, the Occult, and Scientology, or Catherine the Great's chairs embellished with phallic symbols, we're totes about to dive in on the Dirty Bits and learn how the sexual drives of those who came before us shaped our world.
