    The Apollo 1 Disaster

    The Apollo 1 Disaster

    In the early 1960s, the United States was always a step behind the Soviet Union in the space race. 
    By the mid-1960s, the Americans had caught up. They didn’t have many glamorous firsts, but they were doing increasingly difficult things in space.
    All of that came crashing to a halt on January 27, 1967, when three astronauts died in what was a seemingly routine training exercise. 
    Learn more about the Apollo 1 Disaster, how it happened, and how it influenced the future of the Apollo program on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

    The Herculaneum Papyri

    The Herculaneum Papyri

    In the mid-18th century, excavations in the ancient town of Herculaneum, just outside the city of Pompeii and destroyed by the same volcano, discovered something….interesting. 
    They found a villa that contained 1800 ancient scrolls. Unfortunately, the volcano's heat carbonized them, making them illegible and incredibly fragile. Still, for over 250 years, scholars have hoped that techniques would eventually be developed to allow these scrolls to be read. 
    That day may have finally arrived. 
    Learn more about the Herculaneum Papyri and the attempts to read and preserve their ancient knowledge on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

    The Passenger Pigeon (Encore)

    The Passenger Pigeon (Encore)

    In the early 19th century, the most abundant bird in North America, and perhaps the entire world, was the passenger pigeon. An estimated three billion of them would fly in flocks so large that they could blot out the sun. 
    However, within a century, the entire species had gone extinct. 
    It was one of the fastest and most disastrous turnarounds for any species in recorded history.
    Learn more about the passenger pigeon and how they went extinct on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

    The Worst Roman Emperors (Encore)

    The Worst Roman Emperors (Encore)

    Depending on how you define it, there were somewhere between 70 to 100 Roman emperors between the ascension of Augustus to the fall of the western empire in 476. A period of about 500 years.
    Some of them managed to be just and competent rulers who ruled for extended periods of peace and prosperity. 
    Others….were not. 
    Learn more about the worst Roman emperors who ran the gamut from insane to incompetent on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

    Unintended Consequences

    Unintended Consequences

    One of the most famous lines in poetry comes from the poet Robert Burns, who spoke of ‘The best-laid schemes of mice and men.’
    The line has been used in reference to the fact that no matter how good the plan or the intentions behind it, things will often not go according to plan. 
    Indeed, there have been times in history when plans have made things far worse than the problem they were trying to solve. But there have also been times when things have turned out better than hoped for reasons not understood at the time. 
    Learn more about unintended consequences and how things sometimes don’t turn out like they were planned on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Muy Bien

Extremely important, very informative.
Unlike other history podcast, no political bias is shown. It is now my favorite!

AV Exists ,

Greatest podcast I've ever heard!

This is an absolute masterpiece. Gary has created his own type of podcast: a daily, short overview of a completely random topic. You never know what you'll be learning about today; it could be geography, history, science, math, tech, or any other topic you can think of. I have severe ADHD but I can listen to these without getting bored. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Disappointing

This guy mispronounces a lot of historical words. This indicates he’s just reading text but doesn’t know the history.
