Bringing Weird and Forgotten History Back to Life

Thanks for visiting!

John Hinson is a history writer from Charlotte, North Carolina. His writing has been praised as being “helpful, irreverent, and humorous,” while also earning criticism as being “bloody apathetic.”

He is the world leader in writing about weird and obscure history – a market he dominates because he’s the only one who claims to be in it. Click here to see John’s collection of published material.

In addition to his writing, John also hosts the Our Weird World podcast and maintains Easy Waterfall Hikes, a database of family-friendly hikes in the Appalachian Mountains.
