The Truce

In this episode of The Brain Food Show, we start by looking at whether poinsettias are actually poisonous or not.

Next we discuss today’s sponsor. If you’re interested, go to to get started on your Wix website today! And check out our new website for the Brainfood Podcast at

Moving on to the main content today we’re looking at one of the more remarkable things ever to happen in modern warfare- a completely impromptu Christmas truce, in which both sides in WWI randomly got up out of their trenches up and down the line and threw a party together.

We follow that up with some interesting bonus facts including a rather bizarre requirement the British military had for their soldiers for about a half century, among other things.

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. Thanks!
