Probably my favorite Hardcore History episode. Just so much insanity so removed from our modern mental framework that it could be nearly impossible to even comprehend it, but it works.

Someone linked to this episode recently here on MeFi and I downloaded it but can't find the thread I got it from.

All the torturing people to death makes him think of the Waco siege, rather than lynchings where people were actually tortured to death in public or something like Emmett Till being murdered and his eyes cut out? I think he really over-does it with the insistence that the events he's describing are alien and beyond the comprehension of "we moderns".
