After another funny appearance by the Pirates of the Internet, the gang continues the history of piracy, talking about some of the most well-known (and some not so well-known) Pirates to sail the Seas, as well as an insightful education on the nature of contemporary piracy.
After warding off The Pirates of the Internet in their cold open, Eric, Bryan and Sarah launch into part 1 of a 2-parter discussion on the history of Piracy.
In this first part, we start with Piracy’s ancient beginnings, discuss the root of the word and build up through the middle ages.

After another punny cold open light-bulb joke, Eric, Sarah, & Bryan continue their science theme for the month with a discussion into the fascinating personal life and scientific contributions of the one and only: Albert Einstein.

With Eric taking some time off, Sarah and Bryan continue their experiment: history from a living person’s perspective. Listen to Part 2 of an on-site interview with Larry Mortensen, as he continues discussing his service in the Navy during the Korean War, his two decades of police work, and witnessing the birth of Silicon Valley.
With Eric taking some time off, Sarah and Bryan wanted to try something different: history from a living person’s perspective. Listen to Part 1 of an on-site interview with Larry Mortensen, a man who’s seen a lot. Enjoy!
This week, we prepare our audience for the coming of Kwanzaa, as well as discuss the roots of it’s traditions.
