    Christmas Episodes

    Sorry for the delay in production. We recorded these a few weeks back, but had some issues that needed sorting before we could hit publish. ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Turns out I was remembering correctly- slinky was used to describe women or clothes that were "sinuous and slender"

    A Christmas Podcast

    Seriously, everyone should go watch the TNT/Patrick Stewart version of a Christmas Carol....

    The Remarkable Sarah Hale

    "self-serving" is the phrase I was looking for in the part about Ben Franklin's argument as to why women should be educated. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Remarkable Sarah Hale

    " Do not eat it raw. It isn't good that way." Yep, definitely concur with that. It was like eating exceptionally fatty ham that smelled like wet cat food...
  8. I actually like that you jumped on to join the discussion right away. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The Remarkable Sarah Hale

    "might be that it is justification based only on the benefit that educating women might have for men," This is exactly what I was trying to grasp for there, but not finding the words. All that said, I should have also explicitly mentioned that Ben Franklin was known for his rather subtle sense of humor, often embedding jokes and satire that take quite a bit of digging to uncover. So much so that in the forward to the autobiography, the rather distinguished editor claimed that this is one of the reasons there was hesitation to let Franklin write the Declaration of Independence. Instead, they had him just as an advisor on its wording, and directed the much less qualified Jefferson to take the lead. I could definitely see arguing that women should be educated only because of the benefit it would have for men being one of those instances of very subtle satire. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Or, if not, at least to modern eyes, it's kind of a humorous away to argue that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Macabre Series

    Well that escalated quickly.... ?

    Women Listeners

    Interesting point there. It is possible the algorithm has picked up women in general don't watch a lot of educational youtube, so simply is less likely to recommend those videos, even to women who do sometimes watch.

    Ya the original plan was to do sort of a "self-help" section covering some major point(s) in a relevant book or the like, as well as have other practical knowledge type stuff. Sort of making it a really long variety show, but very quickly feedback was that people didn't like the variety show idea and we should just stick to the main part. At some point we may start a separate podcast for that kind of stuff though. ?
  18. Episode 3 discussion! :-) Don't forget to rate and review on whatever podcasting platform you listen through. ;-) Thanks!

    The Final Frontier Part 4

    Sorry about the horrible joke... ?
  20. Seriously, any women out there want to practice the method mentioned and let us know how long it took to get good at it? ?
  21. Daven

    The Macabre Series

    Ha! We thought for sure they were going to tell us to re-do the ad, but they actually loved it. ?

    The Final Frontier Part 5

    Still not sure if we should take it personal how many people use the show to fall asleep... ?
  23. Wikipedia is a good jumping off point for a lot of subjects, but as with any source everything needs double checked and there's often a lot more information to be found elsewhere. Again, nobody bats a thousand. It doesn't matter how reputable a source, everybody gets stuff wrong sometimes, even experts on a subject. So we just always try for very broad and deep research on everything to try to pull out all the interesting details and make sure everything's as accurate as possible.
  24. We could do a lot of episodes on this guy, but for now will restrict ourselves to two ?
