Historical biopics perform a great service. These movies remind the world of people that would have otherwise fallen into obscurity: Oscar Schindler (Schindler’s List), John Nash (A Beautiful Mind), and  Solomon Northup (12 Years a Slave).


In this episode I am going to talk about six people from history that deserve their own movie. Joining me in this discussion is Jon Hagadorn, host of 1001 Heroes, Legends, Histories & Mysteries podcast.

We present to you…

  • A Viking
  • A sixteenth-century spymaster
  • A blind explorer
  • A Russian royal
  • A plane crash survivor who hiked weeks through the Amazon
  • A World War One ace-turned jazz club owner-turned French Resistance fighter

Have you ever had a problem with your teeth that you’ve always wanted to get fixed? I have an option that can help. You won’t need to go through the hassle or long-term treatment of wire braces. And you can do it all from the comfort of your own home. It’s this new company called Candid. And they are offering a special 25% discount of their services to History Unplugged listeners. Read below to learn more.

Candid is helping people gain confidence through accessible and affordable orthodontic care. Candid makes the process of straightening your teeth convenient and easy by having the customer take the process into their own hands. And even though the customer is taking the process into their own hands, Candid’s network of highly trained orthodontists review each and every case and directs the entire aligner plan.

Here’s how it works…

  • Candid makes clear aligners that are sent directly to your home and are customized specifically for you to straighten your teeth.
  • The aligners fix crooked teeth, crowding, protrusion and gaps.
  • The first step is to purchase their modeling kit which will be sent to your home so you can take impressions of your teeth. (The modeling kit retails for $95)
  • After you send back your impressions with some photos of your teeth, Candid’s network of Orthodontists reviews your specific case and provides you with a 3D Preview of what your treatment will look like.
  • Having a real Orthodontist is the main reason you’ll love Candid. Other companies use “Dental Professionals” …whatever that means.
  • After you receive your 3D Preview, it’s completely up to you if you want to move forward with your clear aligner treatment plan.
  • You can also talk to a real person at any time if you have questions.
  • And here’s the best part: Candid’s treatment time is an average of 6 months and will literally save you thousands compared to the other guys.

Right now Candid is offering a special 25% discount on all modeling kits to History Unplugged listeners. Click here to take advantage of this incredible offer.
