History's Most is a podcast that delves into interesting, under-reported and controversial topics in history and applies superlatives to them. We deep dive headfirst into a variety of topics, from history's most guilty man, to the most disastrous voyage, to complicated wars and confusing politicians.

In today's episode, we are joined by historian and author William B. Taylor to discuss the story behind his new book, Fugitive Freedom: The Improbable Lives of Two Impostors in Late Colonial Mexico.

We take a look at the lives of Joseph Aguayo and Juan Atondo, two men who had impersonated priests during the late Mexican Inquisition, their reasons for doing so, their punishments, and much more in this fascinating story.

Thanks so much to William for reaching out to us! You can find his new book here:
