The planet Neptune was discovered in 1846.
Ever since then, astronomers have felt there had to be another planet beyond the orbit of Neptune.
Everyone assumed they found it with the discovery of Pluto in 1930, however, something still wasn’t quite right.
90 years later, the mystery planet hasn’t been found, but astronomers might be getting close.
Learn more about Planet Nine, sometimes known as Planet X, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
The Sistine Chapel
Located in Vatican City, just off St. Peter’s Square lies one of the plainest and most uninteresting buildings you might ever find. It has no adornments and it is just a solid beige color.
However, inside that bland structure, you will find one of humanity’s greatest artistic achievements, and to enjoy it you just might get a sore neck.
Learn more about the Sistine Chapel, the building, the art, and its history, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
The Mechanical Turk
You’ve probably heard of artificial intelligence systems which have gotten so good that they can beat the best humans at Go, chess, and even Jeopardy.
However, over 200 years ago one Hungarian engineer created a mechanical device that could defeat the world’s greatest chess players.
Learn more about The Mechanical Turk and how it convinced people for over 80 years that it could play chess, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
The Sahara Desert Wasn't Always
The Sahara desert is by far the largest desert in the world. It evokes images of sand dunes, camels and just being really really dry.
However, it didn’t always use to be that way. Quite recently, at least geologically speaking, it was a place with grasslands and forests.
While it disappeared and became a desert, some think a green Sahara might return.
Learn more about how the Sahara desert wasn’t always a desert, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
The United States has created many cultural institutions which have spread around the world. People all over the Earth have enjoyed and benefited from rock and roll, Hollywood films, and the Internet.
However, we’ve also created some things that have spread to other countries which, to be totally honest, are probably not our best look.
Learn more about Black Friday, the surprising history of the term, and how it manifests around the world today, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
The History of Thanksgiving (Encore)
On the fourth Thursday in November every year, American’s celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving. It is a holiday that originated in the Americas but has subsequently spread to many countries around the world.
It is a holiday that is actually secular, but with some religious overtones, and has a unique set of traditions that aren’t really shared with any other holiday.
Learn more about the history and traditions of Thanksgiving on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
Thoughtful and fun. Worth every Moment.
This podcast is honestly incredible. The host lays out each episode in a digestible, fun and educational format. Every topic he covers is interesting, even if it doesn’t seem like it will be from the title. I have a hard time focusing for long periods of time, so this format of learning is perfect for me. Many of the episodes contain information that I deem foundational knowledge, but are lessons I missed in history class as a kid because I wasn’t paying attention. Becoming a regular listener has not only made me smarter and connected many dots for me, but it has also made me a more interesting dinner guest, as I am now able to relay accurate facts on a variety of topics. It helps that I wholly trust Gary’s research and knowledge on all the subjects. I truly don’t know how he does it, but I am grateful he does as this has been missing from my life. Thank you, Gary.
