Christopher Columbus vs Panamá Canal

Ok you two. Seriously, I have heard some historical inaccuracy in previous episodes but today you laid out the grand whammy. In the Christopher Columbus episode you said at the 33:28 mark that “if Christopher Columbus would have travelled a bit further up the Panama coast, he would have sailed through the Panama Canal.” THE PANAMA CANAL??? In 1504??? The Panama Canal was not built for another 400 years!!! Come on!!

Ok

I would love this so much more if the delivery was more natural. The tone/delivery is borderline cringey at times. Neat concepts and interesting material, but this takes away from it for sure. A lot of time is also spend encouraging ppl to review in every episode. We get it.
