About the Host

Brad Shreve


Since a young age, Brad has had a fascination with history. Not your typical history class curriculum, such as wars, monarchies, or empires, but more what life was like for the common folk throughout time. The kind of people we can relate to.

Brad's interest heightened after becoming an author and researched the history of communities for his novels.

Over the years, he has lived in the North, South, Midwest, the Great Plains, and the Desert Southwest. He currently calls Los Angeles home.
