Everyone has dreams of greatness. Some hope to be important leaders. Others hope to break barriers and change peoples' lives. Still others want to be war heroes with superhuman Rambo-like invincibility. Well the cool thing about history is that it's full of those leaders, pioneers, and supersoldiers -- all you gotta do is look closely. And the even cooler thing about it is that history is so chock full of badasses, one great American was a "leader/pioneer/supersoldier" rolled into one, and lived in our lifetime.
On this week's LIVE episode of The Cracked Podcast, Alex Schmidt is joined by comedians Emily Heller (Conan, Late Night with Seth Meyers), Greg Edwards (The Improv, Wisecrack) and Zack Bornstein (SNL, The New Yorker) for a sequel to one of our all-time favorite Cracked Podcast episodes. You'll discover over a dozen incredible humans from across a thousand years of human civilization. You'll come across women & trans people who HIS-tory should've celebrated sooner. And for the first time ever in our "little-known badasses" series, you'll hear the tale of one hero who's a panelist's ancestor.
