Nudists or animal lovers? It's anyone's guess this week as we mangle the line between naturalists and naturists.
Tom takes a look at Nazi nudists, because he got confused about the topic. Frankly, it's still pretty interesting though.
Meanwhile, Sam's been looking at nudist explorer Robyn Davidson's 1700 mile naked trek across Australia, followed by an examination of the creator of cryptozoology and monster hunter Ivan T Sanderson, and mad-scientist/monster creator Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov's quest to breed chimp-human hybrids.

Welcome to That Was Genius: Two blokes. An immature sense of humour. And 10,000 years of human civilisation. A weekly podcast looking at the weirder side of history.
Join Sam Datta-Paulin (he likes history and lives in Britain) and Tom Berry (he also likes history and used to live in New Zealand but is now in the UK as well), for a weekly reflection on the bold, the brilliant... And the downright strange.
From bizarre events and stories to equally odd inventions, barely a day goes by without something incredible (or incredibly stupid) happening around the world.
We upload new episodes every Wednesday night/Thursday morning (UK time).
