I've never heard of Blue Holes before, and even though I'm not typically into the science-y type podcasts I did actually enjoy this episode this morning! Stuff You Should Know is always a great podcast to listen to if you just want to zone out and forget about reality for a moment.
Here’s a reminder to recycle when you can! This episode of SYSK goes over why we need to be more careful with recycling plastics specifically, what is and isn’t recyclable, and how we even got into this mess. Did you know the US had to be taught by trash companies to throw away plastics? Also India banning all single-use plastics sounds amazing. I have no idea how well that would go in the US.
Mitsuye ("meat-sue-yeh") had an incredible impact on Japanese incarceration during WW2
Enjoyed this somewhat pointless episode on the origins of Humpty Dumpty!! Was he an egg? Was he a man? Was he a... beverage??
