We have our first return guest! Lisa Burton joins us to talk about a man of science who helped pioneer taking things out and shifting things around in the human body. From there we learned about Tony and Tina's Wedding, a super cool woman of philosophy, and the briefest iceberg tip of the Byzantine empire.
Mermaid Becca Taubel washed in to talk with us about a stuffy old railroad idea. From there we got HOT with talk about the Tudors, polyandry, and a monarchical paradise.
We sat down with the man most likely to be cast as a teen-aged super hero, Adam Schreck, to discuss the production wing of a family empire. From there we learned about chests that don't quit, sweet sweet street skating, and deadly deadly snakes.
Famed genius Matt Young looks over the filmography of Aussie actor Kevin Harrington with us. From there we learned about the unofficial anthem of Australia, cave animals and honorary degrees.
The nastiest Nash-Villain, Scott Elam, tunes with us on a two-stringed Chinese instrument. From there we learned all about hybrid animals, variations on rock-paper-scissors, and a lot of flavortext about donkeys.
Understated celebrity Adal Rifai created comfortable space with us as we discussed an aspect of the Arabic language that goes beyond "Thank You". From there we learned about an ancient empire with an ancient poet, what goes into Black Forest cake, and the most narcissistic side-kick in Hollywood.
Jonah "Do Anything" Cooper chatted with us about an Armenian-Azerbaijani peace treaty, and from there we kept chatting all over the place. From famous Iranian pop stars to Information Theoretic Death to the inventor of the Armenian alphabet, we really learned a lot about a lot. Great conversation starters for your next blind date!
The winsome Wanjiku Kairu joined us to start off on a journey, all inspired by a quite nice old furnace in Pennsylvania. From there, learn of the wonders of shire composition, pretzels, and for the first time, the lost colony of Roanoke.
Erin and Tyler fly solo on this one, together. With no guest in sight, can your intrepid hosts cobble together a set of compelling Rabbit Holes? Yes, yes they can. Starting with an independent scotch whisky bottler, Erin gets traditional with vinegar and cooperages, and Tyler gets heavy with measures and means.
Lover of manatees and matinees (the second is an assumption), Anneliese Toft sat down with us to review the classic 2003 film Lost Treasure. Just kidding, none of us cared about that, but we did use it as a starting point to learn about Bratz, the movie AND doll, the man who converted Jane Roe, and the man who dreamed of cantilevered women.
The Bears' biggest Cubs fan, Scott Goldstein, took time from behind home plate to talk with us about the Romans' goddess of love. From there, we learned of the disappointing facts of Gertrude Stein, a famous Roman satire involving incontinence, and garbage people around the world.
Fresh-faced Grant Gigot goins us to talk about English informants small and Super. From there we try to make up new rhyming slangs, a big deal train robbery, and a program that definitely did not give your hosts new names and a cover as podcast hosts. Definitely did not.
An objectively fit Alex Trepka joined us to talk about a much historied and very proud Indiana glee club. From there, we learned of pre-diabetic concerns, cartoon cat music, and a tightly controlled vision of the urban tomorrow.
The strikingly mannered Sam Martin sits down with us to discuss Mobile, AL's number one AM Christian talk radio station. From there we discuss the genres of news, Africatown to the artic, and that classic palindrome: a band, a man, Alice Cooper.
The bayou's baby boy TC Matherne saunters into our studio to discuss a rousing tale of brooding seamanship. From there we spend about 2 bells worth of time discussing life on the Duldrums, addiction and what 2 bells means.
