When we tried to start recording, the neighbors revved up their engines and insisted on mowing their lawns–so we had all the wacky background noise!
For Thanksgiving we got together to taste test Brach’s Turkey Dinner flavored candy corn. It was an outdoor, socially distanced adventure that we just had to share with you. It’s like an episode of Chopped where they tried to make candy corn into a savory dish.
Trace’s chickens and her husband, Chas, make a guest appearance! (We gave him a Turkey candy corn and he hated it)
The candy corn flavors were weird, but we had so much fun.
On July 6th, 1930 Fred Newton dipped a toe into the Mississippi river and explained to reporters that he planned to swim from Minneapolis to New Orleans. Along the way he encountered floating rafts of manure and other hazards. It wasn’t an adventure for the faint of heart.
In 1532 the Spanish found out what everyone in South America already knew–potatoes are amazing. But when they brought them back to Europe the reception wasn’t so great. No one was impressed by a food harvested out of the dirt.
When famine hit Prussia in 1774, King Frederick the Great had a plan to get his starving people to eat the dreaded potato.
Check out his grave in Germany and leave a potato.
Letting you know straight out the gate that the sound quality of this episode is…eh. We had some remote recording issues again–thanks Covid–but (get it? Butt Music and but? HA! Dad joke for the win). But, Amy had too much cool stuff to share not to air this episode on Hieronymus Bosch, his painting of The Garden of Earthly Delights, and Amelia Hamrick’s discovery of sheet music on a naked butt.
