Mark Juddery is a Australian writer and journalist who, having worked for some prestigious journals in the past, has been allowed to add "historian" to his job title (which sounds pretty important). He's also written prize-winning screenplays, comedy sketches, and numerous articles for magazines like mental_floss. His latest book, Overrated: The 50 Most Overhyped Things in History, is published by Penguin Books. He is currently working on a book about the last days of silent cinema.
