Darwin's Other Theory

Darwin's Other Theory

2021-03-0508:18

From December  27, 1831, to October 2, 1836, the HMS Beagle set out on a scientific survey expedition in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. On the ship was a young man named Charles Darwin. That expedition exposed him to ideas that would develop his theory of natural selection which would revolutionize the world of biology. This episode is not about that theory, however.  This is about his OTHER theory that he developed from that expedition.  Learn more about Darwin’s theory on the development of coral atolls on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Deep Biosphere

The Deep Biosphere

2021-03-0308:09

Imagine taking all of the trees, grass, animals, insects, fish, coral, and bacteria on the surface of the Earth and in the sea. Basically, every living thing on the planet.  If you were to add it all up, all of the biomass, it would be quite a bit.  Yet according to some scientists, that might not even account for most of the life on Earth.  Learn more about the Deep Biosphere on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily. https://www.intelligentspeechconference.com/ -------------------------------- Associate Producer Thor Thomsen   Become a supporter on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/everythingeverywhere   Discord Server: https://discord.gg/UkRUJFh   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/everythingeverywhere/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/everywheretrip Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/EEDailyPodcast/ Website: https://everything-everywhere.com/everything-everywhere-daily-podcast/

Airplanes were not the first type of aircraft. Lighter than air airships were flying decades before the Wright Brothers flew their first airplane. Of all the airships, there was one company that became so successful in airship development and construction that their name became synonymous with the rigid airship.

Throughout history, there have been many causes for wars. Surprise attacks, broken marriages, unpaid debts, and even, of course, good old greed.  However, an 18th-century war between Great Britain and Spain had perhaps the oddest genesis of all: a severed ear.  Learn more about the War of Jenkins Ear on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily. https://Everything-Everywhere.com/CuriosityStream -------------------------------- Executive Producer James Makkyla Associate Producer Thor Thomsen   Become a supporter on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/everythingeverywhere   Discord Server: https://discord.gg/UkRUJFh   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/everythingeverywhere/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/everywheretrip Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/EEDailyPodcast/ Website: https://everything-everywhere.com/everything-everywhere-daily-podcast/
In 1483, the King of England, Edward V, and his brother were taken into custody by his uncle Richard the Duke of Glouster and placed into the Tower of London.  Both the king and his brother were never seen again. They just….disappeared.  It is probably the greatest unsolved mystery in British History.

If you have ever traveled in Europe, odds are you have visited at least one major cathedral. These massive religious buildings were and still are, the architectural centerpieces in most cities.  Yet, most visitors to a cathedral will usually walk around, gawking at lofty ceilings and old art without ever really knowing what they are looking at. ...and by the way, what exactly is a cathedral?Learn more about cathedrals on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily. http://www.audibletrial.com/EverythingEverywhere -------------------------------- Executive Producer James Makkyla Associate Producer Thor Thomsen   Become a supporter on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/everythingeverywhere   Discord Server: https://discord.gg/UkRUJFh   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/everythingeverywhere/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/everywheretrip Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/EEDailyPodcast/ Website: https://everything-everywhere.com/everything-everywhere-daily-podcast/

Copyright is what protects creators from having someone copy and make money off of their work without compensation.  However, there are some things like directories or maps which have information that can be difficult to copyright. It’s just presenting information or data which exists out in the real world.  Such creators of maps and directories have found unique ways around this problem.

Ever since humans looked up at the stars they noticed that a few of them were different from the others. They moved.  These moving points of light were planets. One of those points of light was, of course, the planet Mars.  This first observation of Mars by early humans slowly and inexorably lead to landing robots on the surface of the planet.  Learn more about our exploration of Mars on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily. https://Everything-Everywhere.com/CuriosityStream -------------------------------- Executive Producer James Makkyla Associate Producer Thor Thomsen   Become a supporter on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/everythingeverywhere   Discord Server: https://discord.gg/UkRUJFh   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/everythingeverywhere/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/everywheretrip Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/EEDailyPodcast/ Website: https://everything-everywhere.com/everything-everywhere-daily-podcast/    
The London Beer Flood

The London Beer Flood

2021-02-2306:48

Early 19th century London was a dangerous, dirty, dingy place with tons of poverty and a lot of drinking.  Alcoholism was common and excessive drinking, especially amongst lower-income people in London, was the norm, not the exception.  All of that alcohol had to be produced, which meant lots of breweries and lots of beer. All of these trends came crashing home on the day of October 17, 1814, in one horrific disaster.

Mitochondrial Eve

2021-02-2109:07

On January 1, 1987, a paper was published in the journal Nature which rocked the world of anthropology.  Researchers Allan Wilson, Mark Stoneking, and Rebecca Cann used the then-new science of genetic analysis to analyze the DNA in human mitochondria.  What they found was evidence that humans on Earth can trace their ancestry back to a single woman who lived approximately 180,000 years ago.
