Last week, I shared with you Steps 1 and 2 for how to complete a college degree in preparation for your imminent career as a superhero. One that may even make Phoenix Jones go “Damn!”
Shall we continue? A-thank you!
STEP 3: Plot Out Your Courses
All the following courses are based out of (read: blatantly and shamelessly borrowed from) a 2010 Course Catalog within the California State University system (San José State University, to be exact). They have been balanced to cover all General Education requirements, and exceed the standard 120 unit requirement that most 4-year colleges have for conferring Bachelor’s degrees.
We apologize for the previous post not working. As we were saying, Eric and Bryan discuss a few of history’s least successful invasions. Enjoy!

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.
