About the History Guy

Lance Geiger is The History Guy on YouTube. Topics covered in his YouTube videos range from aviation history to forgotten battles, historical figures, and more from around the world.

Episodes are posted Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.

He has also created a History Guy podcast that comes out every two weeks on various platforms.

The History Guy’s philosophy for producing videos is: “I have always loved history. I believe that history does not have to be boring. At its heart, history is story telling, and I believe that it should be told with passion and genuine love for the material. History might be tragic, it might be comic, but it is the story of who we are, and we should not be afraid to enjoy that story, and be moved by it.

I live in the American Midwest, talk too fast but am working on that, and tie my own bow ties. Yes, the hats in the background of all the videos are mine.”
