Isn't there a Barnacles and Testicles in the hanging Gardens of Babylon episode? Great episode though, and the recordings are obviously real, and timetravellers can get a tape recorder into any era.

I just recently read this book. I read and watched Just Mercy first and was so upset. This book took those feelings to a whole different level. as a retired preschool teacher in MI I sometimes feel helpless when I learn about injustice in the world. This book inspired me to donate to a books for prisoners program. I hope a few books in the hands of incarcerated people puts a bit of positivity in the world. I love your podcast and have been listening for a few years. I wish I could sit down and have a cup of coffee with you both.

tipping is very weird. you're paying people extra to do a job that they should be already being paid fairly for. It's subsiding crap employers

Destin, nationstates.net is still up! I remember that game, "played" it religiously in grade 9. My friend just got into it last month so I've been revisiting and saving the stuff I made up about my nation, Tengania, before I destroyed it. So cool that you played that too!

Amy Lutz brings extra breadth and perspective to an already excellent podcast. As Guardian of Memories she presented fascinating insight in to the life of the historical figure Amelia Earhart. However, she exceeded expectations with timely observations regarding rumors and conspiracy theories we deal with today. Wisdom remains true: nothing new under the sun. (Get her a different microphone or a vocal coach to help keep her modulation less "hot" on the peaks.)

Unwritten "prison-style" rules for the bathroom: hands forward, eyes forward, legs close, mouth shut. It's just the rules.
