Episode 30 - Child Labor: Pull Your Weight You Little Bastards

EWelcome to episode 30, which may be our most depressing one yet. This week, we will be covering the long, tear-soaked saga of using kids as cheap (or free!) labor. Follow along as we talk about the adorable, four year old miners grave from Roman Spain, the plight of poor, medieval peasant children, the (relative) enlightened attitude of Golden Age Islam, China once again being better than everyone, and the sheer depravity of using kids in early factories. No worries, though, the Founding Fathers were fans!

Episode 29 - Music: All Chanting, All The Time

EWelcome back everyone! After a long break we are here to tell you about the history of music. In this episode we explore the epic poems of Ancient Greece, the dirty lyrics of Rome, the limited selection of genres in the Medieval world, China's devotion to only playing the best music, and belly dancing! This is a fun, relatively clean episode free from too much violence and feces. Bring the kids!
