Episode 23 - Severe Weather: Spinny Cloudy Thing

Welcome back everyone! This week, we get topical as we cover weather! We'll talk about how extreme weather led to some civilizations collapsing, the Japanese getting saved by a divine wind, the English getting saved by a Protestant Wind, and a tornado so large people thought it was fog rolling in. It is actually terrifying to think about. And yes, I did watch 'Twister' immediately after recording this episode. Sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climate_of_Ancient_Rome...


Episode 22 - Communication: Roman Vuvuzelas

Welcome to a less gore-filled episode of Everything's Just Fine! This week, we cover the history of communication, from the beacon fires of Gondor...I mean Europe, to the modern convenience of the cell phone. Also, the first phone call in history was real lame.

Episode 21 - Executions (Part Two): Party Foul

Welcome to the final part of our series on executions! While it will be hard to top death by elephant, the methods we cover this week may be even more cruel. We'll learn about the Roman way of punishing mutiny, giant wheels and the men who used them, the Assyrian penchant for removing skin, and the terror of the Brazen Bull. Once again, it gets kind of gross: Sources: http://www.historyrundown.com/10-most-cruel-execution-methods-of-all-time/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scaphism...


Episode 20 - Executions (Part One): Why Would The Elephant God Allow This?

20 episodes! Wow! Great job everybody. This week, we have the first part of our episode on executions. We start simple with classics such as stoning and beheading but we soon move into more imaginative territory. Come along as we go over the excruciating Death by 1,000 Cuts, the Salem Witch-era Crushing (More Weight!), Throwing to the Ashes, Crucifixion, and the morbid - but hilarious - execution by elephant. Man, we really cannot stop screwing over the pachyderms. Sources:...


Episode 19 - Imprisonment (Part Three): Rectal Knives

Welcome to the final part of our series on prisons. This week we cover the unmitigated disaster that is America's prison system. From Civil War prisons, jails in Yuma, accidental decapitations, to the current gang-plagued halls of places like Pelican Bay, we go over quite a bit in our quest to find out where it all went wrong (COUGH *War on Drugs* COUGH). This one may make you a little mad. Sources: http://www.history.org/foundation/journal/summer11/prison.cfm...
