In today's episode...

G’day, you mob! Let’s welcome back Kyrin Down on the podcast!

In this episode, we talk about COVID in Queensland versus Victoria, because Kyrin’s up in Queensland. We trade gastro stories and talk about street food in foreign countries and how we’ve been food poisoned before.

We talk about the Spice Trade and the Dutch East India Company from the 1700s to 1800s and the miserable lives of sailors. We also talk about what they used to eat, preventing scurvy, that sort of stuff.

We talk about the lives of people in the past. You know, what was it like to live in Rome? What did people think when they saw an elephant for the first time that had been, you know, brought to Italy from sub-Saharan Africa?

And then lastly, we chat a little bit about swearing in foreign languages and the importance of learning slang so that you can fit in.

So, I think you’re going to enjoy this episode!
