    Dim Sims and the Australian Gold Rush

    Dim Sims and the Australian Gold Rush

    Two things that are taken away - the food and the gold.
    But that's not how they're related.
    There's an intertwined history as rich as... maybe bronze?
    Thought the journey to the answer is paved with gold.

    Cows and Accents

    Impressive cow impersonations on this episode.
    Also probably the most accents on a single episode.
    And the most swear words on a Somehow Related epsidoe too!

    Sam Special - Eskimos and Birdseye

    Sam Special - Eskimos and Birdseye

    Going all the way back to episode 26!
    We're over 200 now. Jeez that's a lot.
    Anyway, Sam Special. Back next week!
     
    The frozen food company and a people who live incredibly far north.
    There's obviously cold involved but how would Birdseye be related to Eskimos, ahem, Inuit people?
     
    Reading from the show...
    Inuit v Eskimo
    More about that
    NPR weighed in on that too
    And Reddit on the Greenlanders

    Gilbert & Sullivan and Sausage Rolls

    Gilbert & Sullivan and Sausage Rolls

    "Gilbert" and "Sullivan", almost as inseperable as "sausage" and "roll"?
    The acclaimed comedic theature creators and the bakery staple that's created it's own comedy momentum when eaten in the car.
    They're related - but how?!

    Big Ben and Pennies

    Big Ben and Pennies

    Big Ben, the huge clock on the River Thames, and Pennies, the tiny coins minted and distributed around the River Thames.
    The River Thames is not how they're related, it's much more interesting than that.
