Episode 20 – Guys, I’m a Coffee Plant (History and Science of Coffee)

What’s the worst way to make coffee? Imagine it now. Got it? You’re wrong, this is way worse. Today Science talks the history, culture, and science of coffee.

Rissa shushes middle schoolers. Science pronounces three names wrong and one name right! Clio needs a fish.

The book Science mentioned is Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed the World, by Mark Pendergrast. Check it out!

Episode 19 – DO Pay Attention to the Man Behind The Curtain! (History of Turkey VI)

I’ll tell you, folks, this was a hard episode to name. Other contenders included, “Spell It For Her In Greek,” “My New Favorite Science Man,” and “My Weight In Gold? Very Good.”

Science falls in love. Clio talks…science? Rissa has never been in a public school in her life.
