“The Office” star Ed Helms is entering the podcast world with a look at history’s biggest screwups.
The podcast is called “SNAFU” and it’s produced by iHeartPodcasts and FilmNation Entertainment.
“I’ve always been into history, my dad has always been passionate about history and we always had a lot of cool, weird dusty books around,” he explained to Sam Rubin on the KTLA 5 Morning News. “I’ve just always been drawn to it.”
This particular podcast is more recent history, Cold War, and it’s just a fascinating wild story,” he exclaimed about the content.
The episode he was talking about was the Able Archer Crisis in 1983, which almost led to a nuclear war during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. However, many Americans weren’t aware of this until much later.
Season 1 of “SNAFU” is available now wherever you listen to podcasts.
