Who wrote about giant wasps, talking horses, and eating babies? Paris Geller knows the answer! In this ep we’re trying to figure out what the hey “brobdingnagian” means—and how to say it. We cover the 1726 novel Gulliver’s Travels (where the word originated), as well as other words the same author invented, why this novel was controversial when it came out, and how the 2010 movie adaptation got Scarlett Johansson the role of Black Widow.
Other pop culture we ref: Arthur, Animal Farm, Iron Man 2, Cats, Begin Again, The Devil Wears Prada, Pacific Rim, Alice in Wonderland
