Episode No. 70 — The 7 Wonders of the Ancient-ish World
Eric and Bryan welcome actor, history buff, (and Bryan’s uncle) Greg Mortensen, where they begin to re-evaluate The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Listen to see what makes the list. Brace yourself, folks, these show notes are over 1,000 words!
Pyramids are all over the world. Built by numerous civilizations. Join us as we explore what exactly classifies a structure as a pyramid, the who and why of their construction and did Egyptians travel to South America? Perhaps the Mongoose Equation can help us answer that one…
Google is very good at many things. Web browsing, email, a wide variety other web services, and perhaps most impressive are apps. Recently Google released something truly awesome, Field Trip. What make this so unique and worthy of my praise you ask?
For starters, people like me who tend to have a general idea of what they want, but also tend to be indecisive, enjoy things that do half the work for us. Field Trip shows you a map of the area and highlights any interesting or historical landmarks including unique architecture, plus any Museums or Art Galleries nearby. When I travel, I often spend hours researching what’s worth visiting in the area, and while it’s easy to find the well-known locations, I prefer the path less traveled. Luckily, Field Trip shows you everything! I mean everything!
