The History Hustle features host of Hidden Cities: Extreme fame, Simon Yin. He’s going out to the street, surprising strangers on the fly, and hanging out with the locals to find out what they know (or don’t know) about the place they call home. Simon is visiting Metro Manila and Hong Kong and is coming in hot with a bunch of factoids and activities to quiz the local homies with.
Don’t know the answer? Simon’s got your back. He spent all summer in the library, reading up on all the history and now he’s ready to play ball. He may love drinking cow pee or climbing up tall trees, but on this show, history is where its at. From learning about an ‘ancient Chinese secret’ to street improvising a scene from one of the Philippines’ national heroes, no one is safe from Simon’s historical grasp. This ain’t yo mama’s boring history lesson. This is…The History Hustle!
