The Dude Who Burned Down the Greatest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World Because of Reasons

*Note: This is still a little out of order, as we are needing to further delay publishing of the Tech History Part 3 owing to, ironically enough, technical difficulties.  We’ll have it up within the week most likely though.

In this episode of The Brain Food Show, we start by looking at what literal battleships had to do with the creation of the Slinky.

Next up, we jump into the main part of the show looking at what is largely considered the greatest of the so-called Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and then look at the guy who burned it down just so history would remember him, as well as what steps the ancients took to try to stop him from achieving that goal.

On another note, if you could do us a huge favor and rate and review this show in whatever podcasting platform you’re using (including hopefully giving us some feedback related to the new format), we would be extremely grateful. If you prefer, you can also email us at [email protected] Thanks!

  • Cats slink, sexy slim women have a slinky walk. You are welcome.

  • I really wish you would provide a transcript to the podcasts you do. I don’t “do” podcasts and would rather read an article than listen to people talk about it.

    Just my 2 cents

    • I agree with MadMonk. I know that the PodCast would need to be edited to a readable format, but I think you could get two or three readable articles from each PodCast.

      • Same here. Turn a two or three minute article into a long podcast doesn’t help, not to mention I am seldom where I can listen to a podcast anyway.

        I’ve seen many interesting titles go by, but they’re basically not accessible to me.

  • Why hasn’t an episode been uploaded to Google play since September 30th?

      It’s updating OK when I look at it on Google play. Might just be something weird on your phone or something. I’d try deleting and re-adding the feed or something. Sort of the “reset button” for podcasts. 😉
