Description

In this episode of The Brain Food Show, we start off looking at that time the United States government banned pre-sliced bread… Really.


Next up, we have a brief message from a sponsor, Blinkist, which gives you the key ideas from more than 3,000 bestselling nonfiction books in just 15 minutes instead of having to listen to the full audiobook or read it all. Try it out for free and help support this show by using the following link: http://blinkist.com/brainfood


Moving on to the next section we look at who exactly invented what is so often compared to the “best things”- pre-sliced bread and the little saga to him getting bakers to accept his invention.


After that, we look at the surprisingly interesting saga of the invention and popularization of the shopping cart.


On another note, if you could do us a huge favor and rate and review this show in whatever podcasting platform you’re using (including hopefully giving us some feedback related to the new format), we would be extremely grateful. Thanks!
