Guide to be a tyrant
By Felix Riano Tweet embed
The recommendation for the Netflix documentary series “How to Become a Tyrant,” subtitled with a bit of mercy, ended in “How They Became Tyrants.” In this podcast episode, I explain why you lose the magic of that translation and why it’s so much better to hear it in the original it narrates Peter Dinklage.
The first 6 tyrants
In its first season, the series contains 6 episodes revolving around history and “teachings”:
- seizing power Adolf Hitler
- Eliminate your competitors like Saddam Hussein
- Ruling through fear like Idi Amin
- Control the truth like Joseph Stalin
- Create a new company in the name of Muammar Gaddafi
- rule forever like Kim dynasty in North Korea
Hear it narrated by the actor who gave life to the character Tyrion Lannister, from Game of Thrones, you will feel that the person who tells you the “proof” knows for sure what the lessons are from the real and nefarious characters in history.
In the Spanish versions you can hear Daphnes Fernandez from Mexico and Carlos del Pino from Spain.
