For this show, Justin and I went to Home Depot, purchased some tiki torches, and recorded this show basking in their soft, flickering glow… It’s all the rage. Howe is chilling in winter quarters; he’s all about that ball lifestyle. Washington has had his Mr. Miagi montage moment and is ready to start assembling his all-start team.

Every leader needs a few good men… When it came to George’s security detail, he wanted a few good looking men. George was oddly specific about the men he entrusted to make sure he was safe. As we learn, he should have been a little less concerned with looks and a little more concerned with their loyalty towards him.

George Washington may be on the $1 bill, but he was certainly not a man made of money. George loved the finer things in life and wasn’t afraid to spend those Benji's to get them.

This inbetweenasode is brought to you by some really tasty whisky… Apparently we forgot to talk about the French and Indian War / Seven Years War / Third Silesian War / Pomeranian War in episode 3. The War of Many Names occurred between the events of episode 3 and episode 4. This War really sets up the events of the Revolutionary War. Because of its importance, we wanted to make sure we brought you a mostly complete and accurate account of what went down. Enjoy :)
