Drunk History Australia

Drunk History Australia

History is retold by the victors, but what happens when the historians filter the stories through an alcohol sodden lens. Ah, then history takes on an entirely different timbre. The facts may remain the same, but the way they're presented may be somewhat skewed. In a funny way. This time the stories come from Oz.

Matt Okine tells us the tragic back-story of that 'jolly swagman camping by the billabong under the shade of a coolabah tree', and suddenly one of Australia's most iconic songs takes on an entirely new meaning. And before Shane Gould and Ian Thorpe there was Dawn Fraser, whose swimming may have been world class, but her behaviour at the Tokyo 1964 Olympics - eh, not so much. So bad in fact that she got sent home early. Ah Dawn, they don't make Aussie larrikins like they used to. Em Rusciano tells us why.
