Connections - Episode 5

7/31/2019
More
It’s time for another BIG connection..and this one involves all of us. Well, not literally that would be crazy (we can’t include 7.7 billion people on a 15-minute podcast episode) - it’s a metaphor! And a metaphor is like a simile in that it exists only in our minds......which is also part of the episode! (Literally.)

In this episode of Shabam Connections, we take you on a journey of tangents and non-sequiturs (actually that's what every episode of Connections is, since that's kind of the point). It's like 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon except we start with Zebras and end with an 18th century classical composer. Also, tidbits from the Zombie Medicine Conference, aquatic animals, whiskey, and Shakespeare. It's a wild ride!

So, schools out and summer is here and no doubt there are a lot of listeners who are excited that they’re not sitting in a classroom or doing homework. Well, Shabam! is here to explain why doing homework and going to school is a luxury. Before 1938, if you were a kid who didn't have super wealthy parents, you’d probably be working…all day. Shabam will take you back less than a hundred years so you can appreciate last month.
