What's going on with this episode? I got to about 75% of the way through, there was an ad break then it cut back to the start of the episode and it was all content I'd already heard until the end. Please fix this by uploading a complete episode!

Lol, women dressed in more comfortable, men's clothes, to do physical work means "trans people" and "queer community". You're losing it, guys.

both version of exception to the rule were nonsense lol for an exception to prove a rule, it cannot be found. example. all crows are black. but you theoretically could find a white one. but its not white, it's albino. a genetic anomaly that can't be predictably replicated. So, a why crow is an exception that proves the rule because you can't find one.

disappointed with this episode. I guess I have high standards when it is a topic I've been familiar with for years. if you want to know more about St. Helens... please do more reading/listening beyond this episode. so much more than hinted at in this short time frame. also, if you listen to other sources, you might hear more accurately spoken pronunciations of the area's native names. I mean, Google and YouTube both will help with this, chuck and josh.

The famous 17th century English diarist, Samuel Pepys, is pronounced "Samuel Peeps", (impossible to know, very odd pronunciation by our standards).
