Description

The past is a crazy place, and no matter how many times we go back there, there's always something new to surprise us. This episode we learn about a continental witch panic that just happened to coincide with tomatoes arriving in Europe. An unfortunate mistranslation from the original Ancient Greek really didn't help matters either.
