History

The Drunken Peasants originally aired as the No Bullshit Podcast in January 2014. Benpai and TJ Kirk started the Drunken Peasants only as an audio-only podcast before expanding into other forms of media like video podcasts, blogs, wikis and web series talk shows. For the first 17 official episodes, the show did not have any video but instead they only presented audio recordings of the media featured on the show and the voices of the hosts and guests as they did the podcast. TJ Kirk's younger brother, Scotty Kirk eventually became a full-time host of the Drunken Peasants. Paul Parkey (Paul's Ego) became the fourth member of the show's host on September 11, 2015. Around 2017, Billy the Fridge became the fifth host of the Drunken Peasants.
