Numbers Stations

If you ever stay up at night scanning through frequencies on shortwave radio, there is a good chance you might come across something very odd and kind of creepy.  You will find a station that is nothing but a disembodied voice reading off a seemingly random string of numbers. There is often an identifying sound or song which is played on a regular basis before another recital of numbers.  These stations have no call signs or other identifying information, and no one has ever publicly claimed responsibility for them.  Learn more about numbers stations, what they are, and how they work on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

In the Pacific Theater in World War II, the leader of the combined Japanese fleet was Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto.  Yamamoto was villanized as the arch-enemy of the American forces in the Pacific, and to be fair, he was their enemy.  But there is actually much more to the story. Yamamoto was the loudest voice against war with the United States and was one of the only officials in the Japanese leadership who spent time in the United States and understood it.  Learn more about Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, his rise and tragic end on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Battle of Tours

In the year 732, one of the most important battles in world history took place between the cities of Tours and Portier in France.  On one side was an unstoppable juggernaut that had amassed one of the largest empires in world history in less than a century.  On the other side was a vastly outnumbered force that lacked the primary weapon of the era, heavy cavalry.  The outcome of that battle can still be seen in the world today.  Learn more about the Batte of Tours and the battle that shaped Europe on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Phrenology

In the 19th century, a new discipline swept over the medical and legal professions.  This belief held that a person’s personality could be determined by analyzing the contours or bumps on their head.  The belief had a surprising amount of sway among certain people, and it developed a large following before eventually being thoroughly discredited.

Operation Paperclip (Encore)

After World War II, the American forces in Germany implemented a program of de-Nazification in the parts of the country which they administered. The goal was to remove anyone who was a member of the Nazi party from any position of authority.  However, some of those Nazis were considered valuable, and the Americans wanted them all to themselves. So, they implemented a secret program to bring them to the United States.

Transuranium Elements

If you take a look at the periodic table of elements, you will notice something interesting.  Go to the bottom and take a look at any element over, say, number 94. You will find a bunch of elements you have probably never heard of. Don’t worry because most chemists probably aren’t familiar with them, either. They are not part of any chemical compounds, cannot be found in nature, and most have only existed for a fraction of a second.  Learn more about transuranium elements, what they are, and how we even know they exist on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.e Sponsors BetterHelp Visit BetterHelp.com/everywhere today to get 10% off your first month ButcherBox Sign up today at butcherbox.com/daily and use code daily to choose your free steak for a year and get $20 off."  Subscribe to the podcast!  https://link.chtbl.com/EverythingEverywhere?sid=ShowNotes -------------------------------- Executive Producer: Charles Daniel Associate Producers: Peter Bennett & Cameron Kieffer   B

Marcus Antonius

One of the central figures in the drama of the collapse of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire was Marc Antony. He was a rather odd figure in Roman History.

The Whiskey Rebellion

In the late 18th century, the newly independent United States of America faced its first major domestic crisis.  Settlers in its westernmost regions rose up in open armed rebellion against the government.

The rebellion and its subsequent response were seen as a threat to the very existence of the new country.  Learn more about the Whiskey Rebellion, its causes, and its ramifications on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Located in the area between philosophy and mathematics is the realm of logic. Logic permeates everything we do, from the work of Socrates to modern computer programming to the musings of Mister Spock.  However, there is more to logic than just making sense and avoiding fallacies.

The Red Baron (Encore)

The First World War saw many innovations in warfare. Probably the most significant was the introduction of aircraft.  The first military pilots didn’t really know what they were doing.

Operation Barbarossa

On June 22, 1941, German forces crossed into the Soviet Union. It was, and remains, the largest military operation in human history. The force that the Germans assembled for the invasion was staggering, consisting of over 3 million men.

Prohibition

On January 16, 1919, the 18th Amendment to the US Constitution was passed. It banned the manufacture, sale, and transportation of alcohol.  The path to the 18th Amendment was something that was almost a century in the making, and once it was passed, it was widely ignored both illegally and through numerous legal loopholes.  Finally, after being in place for almost 14 years, it was repealed with overwhelming popular support using a constitutional method that has never been used before or since.

A History of Lead

Sometime around eight to nine thousand years ago, ancient people in Asia Minor found a very dull grey metal that turned out to be easy to manipulate when it was heated.  For thousands of years, it was used for a variety of purposes, including as a food additive.  With the advent of the Industrial Revolution, even more uses were found for this unique metal.  However, by the 20th century, scientists realized that maybe this stuff wasn’t really so good for us.  Learn more about lead, how it has been used throughout history, and how our perception of it has changed on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Acadian Expulsion (Encore)

Beginning in the 16th century, French settlers crossed the Atlantic to settle in a French colony located in the New World. That colony wasn’t modern-day Quebec, however. The colony was known as Acadia.  When the British took control of Acadia in 1713, the Acadians were allowed to stay, but eventually, that privilege was revoked by the British, and those people were scattered to the winds.  Today, the descendants of the Acadians can still be found all over the world.  Learn more about Acadia and the Acadian Expulsion on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The 1972 World Chess Championship (Encrore)

During the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union competed in almost every arena: space, sports, and of course the military. Everything they competed in was designed to show the superiority of their respective systems.  In 1972, one of the greatest cold war rivalries came to a head in Reykjavík, Iceland.  It didn’t take place at a sporting event or on a battlefield. Rather, it took place over a period of two months on a chessboard. Learn more about the 1972 World Chess Championship, aka the “Match of the Century”, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The League of Nations (Encore)

The First World War was the most horrific war the world had ever seen at that time. When the conflict ended, there was an effort to make sure that such a thing never happened again.  To that end, a deliberative body was created where nations could come together to debate and discuss matters before starting an armed conflict. While having some success, this deliberative body ultimately failed at its stated goal of avoiding another world war.

Questions & Answers: Volume 9

As I do every month, I went to the Temple of Jupiter Capitolinus to meet with the Augurs.

The cold war was the defining event of the second half of the 20th century.  When exactly it ended has been subject to debate. Was it the fall of the Berlin Wall? Was the day the Soviet Union was dissolved? There is an argument to be made that end might have actually occurred before any of those things, although no one knew it at the time.  The event in question didn’t take place in Moscow or Washington but in a supermarket in the suburbs of Houston.  Learn more about the most important supermarket visit in history on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
