    Episode 5 - The Founding Fathers

    Episode 5 - The Founding Fathers

    In this episode, we talk about some of the darkest elements of our otherwise revered Founding Fathers.You’ve likely heard the legends about these men because they were unprecedented in our nation’s history, indeed they founded the nation. They were essential in drafting the U.S. Constitution, declaring our independence, and sculpting a nation out of turmoil. But these men were men, they were human and they existed in a time where both slavery and pistol dueling for bragging rights were acceptable behaviors. So naturally, there’s a crass and uncomfortable dimension to each of them. Let’s explore those.https://allthatsinteresting.com/founding-fathers-facts credits: https://allthatsinteresting.com/podcast-credits

    Episode 4 - Plague & Pestilence - The Dancing Plague Of 1518

    On July 14, 1518, a woman identified only as Frau Troffea stepped out of her house in Strasbourg, Alsace -- in what is now France -- and started to dance. After many hours, drenched in sweat and twitching, she finally collapsed. Then, a few hours later, she got up and started again -- and then again the next day. By the third day, her feet were bruised and blood soaked through her shoes, but still she continued to dance. https://allthatsinteresting.com/dancing-plague Credits: https://allthatsinteresting.com/podcast-credits

    In the spring of 1945, as the Allies approached victory over the Axis powers, Japan considered launching a terrifying attack on the U.S. mainland.
