It's 1888 and brilliant comedian Luke Chilton joins Bobby for a kombucha fuelled first 2 part episode. We learn that 1888 is the year with the longest Roman numerals, women's rights activist Susan B Anthony votes illegally, the National Geographic is founded, and the earliest evidence of a death and injury from a meteorite is discovered in Iraq, and artist Vincent Van Gogh chops off part of his ear. We hear about Bobby's early job at a nightmare Indian restaurant in Canada, and we also learn more about Luke Chilton's life than he probably anticipated he would share on a podcast.
