This is John Brassard Jr, the Kitchen Table Historian. I’m here to tell you the stories that your grandma didn’t want you to hear.
John grew up on the stories of America’s past told to him by family and friends. He was always intrigued by the strange and unusual stories that his grandfather and father told him. He decided to turn it into a life-long interest, and graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in History from Iowa State University in 2003.
Since that time, he has authored three books and numerous articles detailing forgotten stories from the nooks and crannies of history. In 2019, John started the Kitchen Table Historian podcast, bringing these weird and wonderful tales into the ears of eager listeners all over the nation.
