ALL RATS MUST DIE!!!
08:36

Humans and rats have lived in an uneasy relationship for millennia. Rats have spread diseases like the bubonic plague, destroyed grain harvests, and stolen our pizzas. 

In return, rats have given humans…...pretty much nothing. 

As such, humans have waged a relentless war against rats which for the most part has gone nowhere. However, there are some fronts where we have had amazing success.

Learn more about humanity’s war on rats on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The British Pound(s)
07:36

If you visit a different country you might need to get some of the local currency. You might get Ringgit in Malaysia, Pesos in Mexico, Kip in Laos, or Tala in Samoa. 

However, there is one country where you have to be careful what currency you get because there are different notes produced in different parts of the country, and the different notes aren’t accepted everywhere in the country. 

Learn more about the various British Pounds on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Moving Day in New York
07:59

Since the year 1790, New York City has been the largest city in the United States.  Given the population density of the city, the vast majority of the people there rent apartments. 

Now imagine if everyone in New York who switched apartments had to do so on the exact same day every year. 

Well, this was the reality in New York for over a century.

Did Gutenburg Really Invent the Printing Press?
09:56

The printing press is considered to be one of, if not the greatest invention in history. The printing press allowed for an explosion in information and it ushered in the renaissance, the enlightenment, and the scientific and industrial revolutions. 

As such, Johannes Gutenberg is often considered one of the most important people in history.

But did Gutenberg actually invent the printing press? Should he be given credit for this important invention?

The Dunbar Number
07:22

Surströmming: The World's Smelliest Food
07:29

There are many foods that are considered an acquired taste. Foods that might not be very palatable the first time you try it, or something that just doesn’t sit right with most people.

It could be something as simple as blue cheese, or something like the Filipino delicacy, balut, which is a boiled, fertilized egg with the embryo still inside. 

Sweden has its own acquired taste delicacy which has spawned hundreds of reaction videos as people and caused it to be banned by airlines.

The Nuclear Football
09:00

Odds are, if you have ever seen a photo of the president of the United States over the last 60 years, there has been someone in the background or walking a few steps behind, who had in their hand a leather satchel.

In that bag was everything the President would need to start armageddon.

The McRib
07:26

The musical Brigadoon is about a Scottish village which appears for one day every 100 years. The village can be thought of as a metaphor for things that are fleeting, or why we must take advantage of opportunities when they appear. 

Brigadoon doesn’t exist in our world, but we do have the next best thing.

In the year 1184 in the Dutchy of Thuringia, in what is today the country of Germany, a conflict raged between the Count of Thuringia and the Archbishop of Mainz.

The Golden Record
09:51

In the 1970s NASA embarked on a mission it had never attempted before. Due to a fortunate alignment of planets, they were going to attempt to send robotic probes on a flyby mission to Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, before being sent to deep space, out of the solar system. 

Some of the mission planners figured if they were going to send a probe all that way, maybe they might as well add something extra to the payload.

The Last Germans to Surrender
08:55

Wars often start with a bang but end with a whimper. Often an attack or an invasion will begin a war, but even one when one side surrenders, it can take days, weeks, or months for word of the capitulation to get out to everyone. 

While the European theater of World War II officially ended on May 8, 1945, the word didn’t reach everyone right away.

The 12 Days of Christmas
06:48

I’m sure all of you have heard the 12 Days of Christmas song. It is the holiday equivalent of 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, and no one ever sings it to completion because it’s so long. 


But it does raise the question, what are the 12 days of Christmas? Why are there 12? And why am I doing an episode on this in January well after Christmas is over?

Learn the answers to these questions on the episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Canary Islands
09:59

If you think of Spain as the country on the Iberian Peninsula which is sandwiched between France and Portugal, you are not wrong, but you are also not totally right. 

There is also a significant part of the country which is located in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Morocco: The Canary Islands. 

Here you will find things that you aren’t going to find in mainland Spain or even the rest of Europe.

In the waning days of the 19th century, a passenger steamer crossing the Pacific Ocean en route from Australia to Canada did a particular thing, at a particular place, at a particular time. 

If it wasn’t for a last-second decision of the captain of the ship, we wouldn’t be talking about the ship today and it would have been forgotten in history.

Why Does the Year Start on January 1?
09:54

New Year’s Day is not only the day we turn over a new year on the calendar, but also a day where people start resolutions, companies begin new budgets, and everyone screws up writing checks. 


While documenting our trips around the sun makes perfect sense, why do we use this day, January 1, as the starting point for our calendar years? Why not some other date?

Learn more about how January 1st became the start of the new year on this Episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Election of 1824 (Encore)
10:21

Many people think that politics and elections in the United States are the most controversial they have ever been. History, however, begs to differ.

Perhaps the oddest and most controversial presidential election in American history was the election of 1824. It is an election that doesn’t get a lot of attention given who won and the lack of major issues at stake, but it is one that more people should be familiar with.

Learn more about the election of 1824 and the end of the Era of Good Feelings, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Kayfabe (Encore)
10:43

One of my dirty secrets is that I’m a fan of pro wrestling. Whenever I tell people this the first thing I inevitably hear is, “you know it’s fake right?”

This idea that people think professional wrestling is real comes from the concept that wrestling insiders call kayfabe.

Learn about the history of kayfabe and how this concept from professional wrestling can be used to navigate the modern world on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

11:10

If you look at the list of officer ranks in the United States armed forces, there are 10 ranks listed which are held today They go from Second Lieutenant all the way up to the rank of General, which is the four-star variant of the rank. 

There is a rank above general, a five-star general, which hasn’t been awarded in 70 years. Most people are familiar with these generals as having served in WWII. 

However, there is still one more rank above that of a five-star general in the United States Military.

In the aftermath of the horrors of WWI, many people in Europe wanted to find a better future going forward. A future of peace and prosperity, where energy, food, and jobs would be available for everyone.

One man from Germany named Herman Sörgel had a VERY ambitious idea. An idea that would literally change the map of the planet Earth, and was the biggest proposed engineering project ever put forward.

Question: Who is the most dominant athlete of all time?

It’s an interesting question and one which has started endless pub debates. Is that a basketball player like Michael Jordan, a baseball player like Babe Ruth, or a soccer player like Lionel Messi?  

Or maybe it’s an athlete in an individual sport like Tiger Woods, or Serena Williams.

Catalonian Christmas Traditions
06:55

Catalonia is a unique region. They have their own Romance language, their own customs, and cuisine, and when it comes to the Christmas season, they have their own traditions.

In fact, when it comes to the Christmas season, they have some very very unique traditions.  I’d dare say that their Christmas traditions are firmly ranked #2.

Why Don't We All Drive on the Same Side?
11:33

Standards make everything easier. When everyone can agree on a standard way to do things, regardless of how it is done, it can reduce confusion and facilitate progress.

You’d think if there was one thing that would be standardized everywhere, it would be the side of the road everyone drives on. I mean, there are only two options. 

Yet, there is no global standard for what side to drive on.

Learn more about why we don’t all drive on the same side of the road on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Rosetta Stone
10:53

The ancient Egyptian civilization was one of the oldest civilizations that we know of on Earth. While there is much we know about them, knowledge of their system of writing, known as hieroglyphics had become lost by the middle ages.

Where there were different theories as to what the writing meant, no one was really sure how to read hieroglyphics.


All of this changed in 1799 when French troops under Napoleon Bonaparte discovered a stone that unlocked the secrets of the language.

Back in the day, sending letters was slow and potentially confusing. 

Nothing could travel faster than the speed of a horse or a ship, and addressing letters could be confusing if there were multiple people in a city.

Besides all being famous landmarks, they have something else in common. They are all UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Pintupi Nine
07:34

In October 1984, nine members of the Pintupi Tribe in Western Australia met some long lost relatives they hadn’t seen in years. The relatives invited the nine people to come and live with them in their community in Kiwirrkura.

The significance of this event is that those nine people, two women with four boys and three girls, were the last aboriginal people in Australia to have contact with the outside world. 

Up until 1984, they had lived their lives the same as their ancestors had for tens of thousands of years. Learn more about the Pintupi Nine on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Election of 1800
08:05

I’ve done several episodes on close and interesting US presidential elections throughout history. Mainly they were to put current events into perspective, so you can realize that the controversies of today are really not all that new.

However, there was one election that might be considered the closest and most interesting in history, but the lessons for today are much less, simply because they changed the rules after the election, and there was never another one like it again.

So in that spirit, learn more about the Presidential Election of 1800 on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

A History of Jury Duty

Why do we have juries, and where did this notion come from? Do most countries have juries? What does “a jury of your peers” really mean?

Occasionally, soccer hooligans and Raiders fans will take their exuberance a bit too far. Rioting after a team wins a championship happens more often than not.

However, nothing in the world of modern sports can compare to the levels of devotion and street violence which chariot racing commanded in ancient Rome.

On April 30, 1943, a Spanish fisherman came across the floating body of Major William Martin of the Royal Marines. Handcuffed to the corpse was a satchel with top-secret plans for the Allied invasions of Greece and Sardinia. 

With the information gathered from this intelligence, the Germans moved their troops into position to counter the planned landing.

...and Allies couldn’t have been happier.

The Curious Case of Kaspar Hauser
09:36

On May 28, 1828, a 16-year-old boy mysteriously appeared in Nuremberg, Bavaria. He had a letter in his hand and could only speak a few words. No one knew where he came from, who his parents were, or why he was there.

Five years later, just as mysteriously as he appeared, he was found murdered. 

His tale made him one of the most talked-about celebrities in 19th century Europe.

Number One At Being Number Two
09:16

History remembers the rulers and the leaders. We know of Napoleon, Caesar, Elizabeth, Ghengis Khan, and Captain Picard.

However, for every one of the people I just listed, their success was due in large part to the people who worked underneath them. The ones who carried out their orders and made sure things got done. They had to have a competent number two.

In this episode, I will put forward that the greatest number two in history was Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa.

We are often told that schools are where you learn how to think, not what to think. Sadly, almost no school curriculum deals directly with logic and the closely related subject of logical fallacies. 

Fallacies are all around us. Just read something online or watch a few minutes of television and you’ll probably encounter examples of people using fallacious reasoning and logical fallacies. In fact, you’ve probably engaged in it yourself. We’re all guilty of it. 

Learn more about some of the common logical fallacies on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Fosbury Flop
07:09

At the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, Dick Fosbury won the Gold Medal in the men’s high jump. 

He did it by jumping an Olympic record 2.24 meters or 7 feet, four inches. 

What was remarkable about his accomplishment wasn’t the height he jumped, but how it did it.

He didn’t just win a gold medal, he revolutionized the sport of high jumping.

An Incredibly Bright Idea

Thomas Edison is often credited with the invention of the light bulb.

Yet, nothing could be further from the truth. If there is any modern invention that really can’t be attributed to a single person, it would be the incandescent lightbulb. 

Learn about the history behind the incandescent light bulb, perhaps the most significant invention of the 19th century, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Two-Hour Marathon
08:27

Eliud Kipchoge is unquestionably the greatest marathon runner in history. He’s won an Olympic Gold Medal, holds the world’s record, and has won 12 of the 13 marathons he has ever entered.

However, there was one accomplishment that had been out of reach for Kipchoge and every other marathoner: The 2-hour marathon.

On October 12, 2019, Kipchoge managed to break that barrier under some very special circumstances.

Today the world can communicate with text, images, audio, and video at the speed of light. Most of this is done via undersea fiber optic cables which connect the various continents to each other.

All of this modern long-distance communication has its start with the first transatlantic telegraph cable. The first long-distance submarine communications cable which connected Europe and North America in 1858.

The Election of 1824
10:10

Many people think that politics and elections in the United States are the most controversial they have ever been.  History, however, begs to differ.

Perhaps the oddest and most controversial presidential election in American history was the election of 1824. It is an election that doesn’t get a lot of attention given who won and the lack of major issues at stake, but it is one which more people should be familiar with.

Learn more about the election of 1824 and the end of the Era of Good Feelings, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
09:39

People didn’t travel much in the ancient world. But, for those who did they developed the ancient equivalent of guidebooks. These were often lists of manmade sites and attractions which any traveler should take the time to see. 

Over time, one such Greek list was written down and it became known to us as the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

That New Pope Smell
12:50

The Roman Catholic Papacy is one of the oldest institutions in the world, second only to the Chrysanthemum Throne in Japan. Since its inception, there have been 266 popes, and a couple of anti-popes as well. 

The pope is not only the head of a religion but also the leader of a sovereign, albeit small, state as well. The process of choosing a pope is unlike any other in the world.

A Brief History of Timekeeping
11:57

Our ability to measure time is one of the fundamental things which makes us human. We’ve gone from very crude and inexact measures of time to time measurements which are so accurate that it would take billions of years to lose a single second. 

This increased accuracy has allowed us to navigate the seas, space, and even get directions to a nearby store.

Pandemics can be world-changing events. The aftermath of a pandemic can shape societies and topple empires.  

Whether it's the flu, smallpox, cholera, or the bubonic plague, these pandemics have killed more people than all the wars in human history. 

However, pandemics weren’t always a part of humanity. There was a first pandemic that caught civilization by surprise, and the legacy of that pandemic can still be felt in our world today.

Eponymous Laws
09:06

Everyone is probably familiar with Murphy’s Law which says that “Anything which can go wrong will go wrong.” However, there are many such laws, known as eponymous laws, which are sayings, adages, or truisms, which have been attributed to people over the years. 


These are not hard and fast mathematical or physical laws, but rather are general truths which can help you see and understand the world better...and they are usually named after someone.

While different countries may debate as to what sport should really be called ‘football’, the reality is that the word football describes a broad family of sports all of whom have a very similar background and origin. 

Just like species with a common ancestor can evolve in ways where they look totally unlike each other, so too did the football sports evolve from a common ancestor into very different forms today.

Today’s English alphabet, you know that one from the song, is a modification of the system which was used by the Romans, which has had some unique quirks in the past that most English speakers are unaware of.

The longbow was one of the most devastating weapons in medieval Europe. It was a weapon that could launch projectiles hundreds of yards and pierce the heaviest of armor. It was the battlefield trump card to heavy armored cavalry.

No country adopted and mastered the longbow quite like the English. One reason why they found the military success they did was due to a complete societal commitment to the longbow.

Of the 193 countries in the United Nations, exactly three haven’t adopted the widespread use of the metric system: Myanmar, Liberia, and the United States of America.


Of those three, the US is the country that really stands out. It has the biggest economy in the world, does an incredible amount of international trade, has immigrants from every country in the world, and is even the home to the United Nations.

If there was one country on paper that should be using the metric system, it is the United States.

Ask most Muslims what the holiest site is in Islam, and they would all obviously tell you it is the Kaaba at the Great Mosque of Mecca.

Ask most Jews, and they probably know what the holiest site is in Judaism. It is the Western Wall of the Second Temple in Jerusalem.

Ask most Christians what the holiest site is in Christianity, and you might get a blank stare or at least several different answers. 

Through most of Christianity, there has been one place that has been agreed upon as the holiest site, and it has been the cause of wars and disagreements which have continued to this day.

The ancient Romans had a practice called Damnatio Memoriae, which was to banish someone’s memory from public life. It was also sometimes known as oblivion. It called for the complete deletion of the person’s name or image from all statues, inscriptions, coins, and texts. 

While the practice neither began nor ended with the Romans, they are ones who gave it the name we used today.

Sports history is littered with really bad teams. The 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t win a single game and wound up losing 26 in a row. The 2012 Charlotte Bobcats went 7-59 for a .106 winning percentage. The 1899 Cleveland Spiders set a record for futility in baseball winning only 20 games out of 154. 

However, all of those teams are giants compared to the worst professional sports team in history: The Washington Generals.

Kayfabe
10:32

One of my dirty secrets is that I’m a fan of pro wrestling. Whenever I tell people this the first thing I inevitably hear is, “you know it's fake right?”

This idea that people think professional wrestling is real comes from the concept that wrestling insiders call kayfabe.

Drug Lord Hippos
07:04

Pablo Escobar was the biggest drug lord the world has ever known. At the height of his power, he had a near-monopoly on cocaine trade in the United States. He had a peak inflation-adjusted net worth of $60 billion dollars. He was personally responsible for thousands of murders and dozens of acts of terrorism in Colombia.

Today in Colombia, there are approximately 100 hippopotamuses roaming wild.

What do these two things have to do with each other? Well, everything.

Grandmother of Europe
08:10

Traditionally, the royal families of Europe would arrange marriages amongst their children to establish alliances and bonds between their houses. 

While this really isn’t done that much anymore, it also wasn’t that long ago that it was done. One monarch, in particular, Queen Victoria, was really good and marrying off her children. So good in fact that almost every royal house in Europe can trace their ancestry back to her.

Boxing's Alphabet Soup
09:15

Boxing used to be one of the most popular sports in the world. A world championship bout would draw millions of people to their radios or televisions and could pack the largest stadiums. 

Since then, it has waned in popularity in no small part due to the confusing array of titles and organizations which now exist. The WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, IBO, WBF, and IBA and many other organizations all with their own set of initials, all hand out titles.

Lunar Orbit Rendezvous
08:02

Have you ever been told to follow the chain of command or else? In most organizations with a hierarchy or with a bureaucracy, there is a set way in which things have to be done. If you have a suggestion or a complaint, you have to go to your immediate superior, and not jump over anyone’s head.

If it wasn’t for one man jumping over the heads of his superiors and jeopardizing his job, we might never have landed on the moon.

The Original Dow Jones Companies
10:14

For many people, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is the measure of the health of the overall stock market. In reality, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is really just the performance of a collection of 30 blue-chip stocks.

The index was created in 1896 and back then there were only 12 stocks in the index, and most of them are no longer household names. 

Learn more about the original companies which made up the Dow Jones Industrial Average and what happened to them over the last 125 years on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Lloyd Burke: American Badass
07:58

The highest and most prestigious award in the United States military is the Medal of Honor. It is awarded for only acts of extreme valor and bravery. Established during the Civil War in 1863, it has been awarded 3,506 times. 

If you read through the list of Medal of Honor recipients, you will read stories of heroism, honor, and sacrifice.

Of all of the Medal of Honor winners, there was one recipient’s story that really stood out to me. It went beyond bravery and valor to just genuine badassery.

The Great Peshtigo Fire
07:40

The greatest fire in American history, in terms of loss of life, occurred in the town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin in 1871.  Most people haven’t heard of it, and even people who live in the region today aren’t aware of the disaster which happened in their own backyard. 

150 years later, there is speculation that the cause of the fire might have come from a highly unusual source, and some data from other fires might help solve the mystery.

Imperial Leftovers
14:00

At its peak, the British Empire covered 23% of the world’s population and 24% of the Earth’s landmass. By either measure, it was the largest empire in the history of the world.


Since then…..well, let’s just say the Empire has seen better days.

While the vast majority of the Empire is gone, there are still assorted crumbs of the empire that exist around the world.

Van Halen and Brown M&Ms
08:23

For years a story had circulated that the rock and roll group Van Halen had a contract that required that a bowl of M&Ms be left backstage wherever they performed, with all the brown M&Ms removed. If there were any brown M&Ms in the bowl, they would use it as an excuse to trash the room.

Is this just an urban legend, or was there something behind the story?

The French Scrabble Champion
07:47

Nigel Richards is unquestionably the greatest Scrabble player in history. The 52-year-old Kiwi is a five-time world champion, and the only player ever to win more than once. 

He is a five-time United States Champion and has won more major tournament titles than anyone else. 

However, all these accolades are probably not his greatest Scrabble accomplishment.

After the end of WWII in Europe, General Dwight Eisenhower was appointed the military governor of the American Zone in Germany.

During his travels around Germany, he noticed that the German autobahn was really good. His respect for the German highways later became the impetus for passing legislation for the United States Interstate Highway System.

The Julian and Gregorian Calendars
11:55

If you answer that question, most likely you are giving an answer based on a calendar that goes all the way back to one put in place by Julius Caesar. 

Caesar’s calendar, aka the Julian Calendar, was pretty good, but it developed problems over time, so it was modified in 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII. 

This calendar, the Gregorian Calendar, what we’ve been using for the last several hundred years, and it works pretty well.

One man from Germany named Herman Sörgel had a VERY ambitious idea. An idea which would literally change the map of the planet Earth, and was the biggest proposed engineering project ever put forward.

When Did Canada Become Independent?
08:36

In a previous episode of the podcast, I touched on how it was difficult to pin down the date in which the United States actually became independent. 


In the case of the United States, it was a matter of pinning down when we wanted to define independence. Was it at the start of the rebellion, the act of declaring independence, or was it the end of the war?

In the case of Canada, trying to pin a date on independence is a lot more complicated, and extends over a much longer period of time.

Everyone knows who Neil Armstrong is and why he is famous.

Being the first person to set foot on the moon has placed him in a unique position in world history, and he is a name that people will probably remember for thousands of years.

But Apollo 11 was not his first spaceflight.

His first flight aboard Gemini 8 was, in many respects, far more exciting and impressive than his exploits on Apollo 11.

Blowouts
09:07

In the world of sports, most people enjoy very close fought, exciting games that go down to the wire. If you were to take a poll on what the best games or matches in history were in any given sport, it would probably involve a close score with a last-second victory to put one team over the edge. 

However, there are times when a team gets whooped so bad, you just have to sit back and admire the shellacking they received. 

This is the realm of the blowout.

10:15

The British Crown is unquestionably the best-known monarchy in the world. As with all monarchies, there is a strict line of succession featuring many names you’ve probably heard of: Prince Charles, Prince William, and little Prince George. 

However, the rules regarding succession are more elaborate than most people realize, and the number of people in the line of succession now goes into the thousands. 

Moreover, the current line of succession isn’t the only one out there. If history had gone down a different path, the current British Monarch might very well be someone else entirely.

If you look at the list of officer ranks in the United States armed forces, there are 10 ranks listed which are held today They go from Second Lieutenant all the way up to the rank of General, which is the four-star variant of the rank. 

There is a rank above general, a five-star general, which hasn’t been awarded in 70 years. Most people are familiar with these generals as having served in WWII. 

However, there is still one more rank above that of five-star general in the United States Military.

The 1960 Popular Vote
10:40

There have been 5 acknowledged presidential elections in US history where the winner of the popular vote did not win in the electoral college. 

 

However, there is a very good argument to be made that there is a sixth election that should be added to that list. 


The conventional wisdom holds that John F. Kennedy narrowly beat Richard Nixon in the 1960 popular vote by 112,827 votes. However, to get to this number, you have to put a tortured spin on the numbers from one state in particular.

Jesse Owens vs Usain Bolt: Who Would Win?

This episode is going to try and answer an impossible, yet interesting question: who would win in a race between Jessie Owens and Usain Bolt?

Bluffing is one of the most important aspects of playing poker. In any strategic game, in fact, deception can be critical to success.

Warfare is no different. Deceiving an enemy can often mean the difference between winning and losing. Between life and death.

During WWII, the allied forces unleashed the largest and most complicated deception in military history. A deception which resulted in the success of the Allied invasion of Europe, and saved thousands, if not tens of thousands of lives.

Time Zone Oddities
11:28

Before we created time zones, every village, town, and city had their own local time. You’d set the town’s clock according to when the sun was at its highest point each day, and everything was fine.


Eventually, life got faster. Trains began moving between towns and small differences in time began to cause problems.

This eventually led to the creation of time zones, so we could get everyone in the world on the same page as far as what time it is.

Of course, we can’t have nice things, and a simple thing like time zones became really complicated.

He is famous for being the second person to win the presidency without winning the popular vote, and he won in the electoral college by a single vote. The whole election was so shady, he earned the nickname Rutherfraud.

Beyond that, there isn’t a whole lot that people remember about the Hayes administration.

However, in Paraguay, Rutherford B. Hayes is a really big deal.
