This brand new pop culture history podcast is nothing like anything you've heard before, and it's everything you need to understand the modern world. Katie Puckrik and Tom Fordyce, an American pop culture buff and a British music lover, have taken the smash-hit song by Billy Joel and turned it into a podcast. Billy lists 120 people, places, and things in 'We Didn't Start The Fire', and Katie and Tom will do an episode on every single one to create the most fascinating, random and original history of the post-war world. Over the next two and a half years, we're going to learn about politics, rock 'n' roll, sport, space, television, the Cold War, guided along the way by historians, eyewitnesses, and mega-fans. Billy started it. We're going to finish it. Subscribe to the Crowd Stories channel for ad-free and early episodes. New episodes every Monday.

The time has finally come... we’ve made it to the end of the song. This episode description is being written on a tearstained laptop as we speak. But we PROMISE we’re going out with a very fizzy bang. The cola wars was a tense battle between soda gia... more

When you head to the beach, you expect to find some leftover sandcastles and nasty sunburns - not a tide of used syringes. But that’s what was found on the coast of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in 1987-88. It destroyed tourism and caused dras... more
I know of Billy Joel and of this song, “We didn’t start the fire”, but it was very clever of the hosts to seize upon the lyrics to describe in detail the history lesson Mr.Joel was giving us. I really enjoy the podcasts, and will try to go through all of them. Keep up the great work. Highly recommended if interested in Cold War history. I would add that one of the co-hosts should keep her progressive, socialist political viewpoints to herself, as I could care less what her political opinions are... more
I tuned in to this pod sometime in covid curfew here in Oman in my quick walks before we were locked up for the night. I think I discovered it about 15 episodes in, so went back & diligently listened then just got hooked. I actually bought the vinyl album this was on. Storm Front, I think it was called. more
I can’t take anymore of the total liberal bias of the co-host Katie. The final straw for me was the Bernie Goetz episode where she proclaims her disgust for people who possess legally owned firearms for self defense. She’s obviously lived a comfy white privileged life and has never been the victim of a violent crime. At this point I will unfollow and never recommend this podcast to anyone else.
I never realized there was so much to be learned about every day life! It’s well presented and easy to listen to.
“Conveniently he gets Alzheimer's” - If you have ever known someone or had a family member who has had Alzheimer’s you would never be so foolish and callous and in this case hateful to say such a thing. Shame on you
