When I saw the picture above, it blew my mind. What the hell is going on? The Pope, the spiritual leader of 1.18 billion people, is in fact controlled by the insidious Umbrella Corporation.
As I write this, I do so with great fear, for we all know what Umbrella is capable of. With the Pope now under their influence, it raises some important questions. What is Umbrella’s ultimate plan? How many of the Pope’s inner circle have been affected? Perhaps most importantly, why retire?
Eric and Bryan are joined by friend Jeremy Commandeur for an epically nerdy episode where they discuss different points in history that have been visited by Star Trek characters over the years.

Nerds on History
Episode No. 69 — The Complete Package
Eric and Bryan welcome author and historian Maureen Ogle onto the show to talk about her new book In Meat We Trust: An Unexpected History of Carnivore America. Listen as they explore a unique perspective on the history of food in America.
Eric and Bryan were thrilled to welcome Maureen Ogle, who also happens to be the first guest on Nerds on History who has a Ph.D. As we discussed her book, we got to dive into the history of the United States from an rarely explored angle: the food we we eat, and how it came to be that way. The single resonating question that drove all of Maureen’s research was “what does it mean to be an American?” As you listen, I think you’ll find that we come up with some pretty good ideas that help answer that.
