85: The Rural Purge We discuss the calculated decision made in the early 70s by CBS to kill off any southern, rural, or cowboy programs and replace them with a slate of new, “urban” shows that would change American pop culture forever.
84: Sturges v. Bridgman We discuss a “chestnut” of a legal case—an 1879 court dispute between a candymaker and a doctor—and the fascinating economic theory that says the judge’s decision was all wrong.
83: The Great Emu War What happens when a modern military declares war on an entire species? Join us as we discuss a victory for the animal kingdom in the kinda sad, kinda funny story of the battle against emus in Western Australia.
82: The Cuban Missle Crisis We discuss the buildup, logistics, and detente of the Cuban Missile Crisis, a moment of world-wide white-knuckle tension over nuclear weapons.
81: The 26th of July Movement We discuss the anti-government movement led by a young Fidel Castro that took on a corrupt President, fought when vastly outnumbered, and eventually came to rule Cuba—all despite having a truly terrible flag.
80: Prelude to the Cuban Revolution (World Revolutions: Cuba) We talk about the environment that developed in Cuba decades before the Revolution came to a head, and the murderous government of Fulgencio Batista.
79: The Bay of Pigs Invasion (World Revolutions: Cuba) We fast-forward a discussion about the Cuban Revolution by looking at an event that happened years after the revolution was already over: the Bay of Pigs Invasion.
78: Kangchenjunga (The World's Tallest Mountains) We talk about the third tallest mountain in the world, and the mythological mysteries hidden in its many peaks.
77: Grab Bag Omnium-gatherum the fourth! This macédoine of an episode features eight unrelated but fascinating discussions. None of these brief topics could be an episode on their own, but they deserved to be heard so we created this salmagundi for your enjoyment.
