35 days from now
Shanks, a perfectionist, leaves no stone unturned as he weaves, dodges and dips throughhis argument equating Ancient Rome to the modern political landscape The Advertiser, 4/5 Stars
It was similar to Horrible Histories if it were loaded with Australian slang, references to Von Dutch hats, and a heart-warming tribute to perhaps the most misunderstood man in Roman history”… The University of Adelaide, 4/5 Stars
Jordies keeps it balanced with a healthy dose of his signature dumbass voices, deliciously politically incorrect burns (this time directed towards today’s historians) and a dodgy photoshop-filled PowerPoint presentation College Adelaide, 4/5 Stars

Presented by Friendlyjordies

This is a show about how the ancient world isn't all that ancient. The same cabal that
controlled society then controls it now. If you liked The Da Vinci Code you'll love this show.
It's my proudest accomplishment to date other than the smash hit success video "Top Ten
Cutest Dogs”.

Jordan Shanks is a controversial political satirist, investigative journalist and
podcast creator.

He has produced over 720 no-holds-barred videos for his YouTube channel, has over
600,000 thousand followers on social media and his videos have been viewed over 160
million times.

Jordan hopes he will foster some sort of interest in socio-political discourse, maybe even stir
positive change, but most people keep asking him to dress up as a high school kid he once
knew. Sometimes he complies.
