Hey guys, you've got a brilliant show here! Interesting that we're all descendents of Edward III, just don't tell Danny Dier... Have you heard of John Lothropp? He was a 17th century Anglican clergyman who was allowed out of prison in England on the proviso he set sail for the New World. And you know what? He is reckoned to be a direct ancestor of SIX U.S. PRESIDENTS! Including FDR and the Bush dynasty. Keep up the great sleuthing work! Matt, London Tour Guide.

great! although i dont think his death was admirable as they seem to think. it was careless, and left his team at risk without a leader.

In Brazil, the bidet nozzle thing has been fairly common for quite some time now.

great plan. the bats got loose and started a barn fire. it was late in the war, Germany was on the brink of collapse so the project was abandoned.

absolutely untrue. Soviet youth had access to western music. American swing was popular in the 30s 40s. the Beatles played there. the Govt didnt really approve or sanction it. it was definitely available. Russian punk rock huge in the 80s. death metal,metal and Russian pop. dont believe all the leftover, cold war propaganda.

Wow, that description is not very accurate as to the contents of this episode. I'm not saying they are wrong in what they said in the episode, they are correct. But when the show description doesn't mention Washington's involvement in slavery and that's what 99% of the episode is about... Bait and switch much?

All the figures they quote in this ep are so dubious I actually winced several times.

Could this be why Offsprings one CD had a torso on the cover? That would make it more interesting.

I think the concept of this show is great, but the execution is lousy. One host would be much better. These two get off on each other's babbling.

in Latin America we don't have a tooth fairy, we have el ratón Pérez, a mouse that has the same job as the fairy
