Ungeniused is a show dedicated to covering the weirdest articles found on Wikipedia. Stephen Hackett and Myke Hurley are here to explain topics and share knowledge you'll never be able to use in real life. Hosted by Myke Hurley and Stephen Hackett.
The Quadro Tracker
Need to find some drugs or a lost person or maybe a hidden weapon? We have the device just for you.
The Crash at Crush
Who doesn't love a festive event with games, food, drinks and ... a deadly train collision that had been purposefully designed?
Saturn the Alligator
Rumor had it that a particular alligator had been a pet when it lived in Berlin, but that's probably not true.
The Grumman Long Life Vehicle
If you've ever wondered about those funny little trucks used to deliver the mail, Stephen and Myke have you covered in this episode. Just be sure to bring a fire extinguisher...
The Halifax Explosion
In December 1917, two ships collided in Halifax Harbor. The resulting explosion killed over 1,600 people, injured another 9,000 and leveled everything within a 1.6 mile radius.
After decades of false starts, in 1971 the U.K. moved to a decimalized monetary system. Leading up to the change, banks had to take on massive amounts of work and people across the country had to get used to new coins and updated prices for goods.
Yet another (fun and entertaining) rabbit hole
The Wikipedia website is a rabbit hole in itself, and now, there is a podcast version! But since Wiki is too massive and lengthy sometimes, this podcast's strength is to focus on those rarely visited pages/articles, which is absolutely great. It's a great listen while I'm working. The length of the podcast is also just right. Stephen and Myke's interactions are genuine and their personalities mesh together nicely. I'm here to stay, waiting every week for new episodes. :)
