We've seen what happens when people hear that there may be a shortage on toilet paper in 2020, but what about when legitimate food supply lines are cut off in Paris in 1870? Drew and Jim discuss how folks in Paris got hungry, and began to look towards the zoo for a chance to expand their culinary horizons. Rats, dogs, cats, horses, elephants, antelope...it was all on the table. Even more interesting - hear what they still wouldn't eat, and how soon certain types of rodents became high-class fare.
