Joseph Bonaparte: The King of New Jersey (Encore)

10/1/2022
When Napoleon Bonaparte conquered much of Europe in the early 19th century, he didn’t create a monolithic empire that was centrally run out of Paris. Well, he sort of did, but at least on paper, he didn’t. Rather, what he did was set up his family members as monarchs to rule in his place. One of those family members who was set up as king ended up moving to New Jersey. Learn more about Joseph Boneparte, the King of New Jersey, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

9/29/2022
Born in 1815, Ada Byron was the only legitimate child of the famous poet Lord Byron. Unlike her famous father, Ada did not pursue a literary career.

It was the beginning of a groundbreaking collaboration that would only be understood over a century later. Learn more about Ada...

Getting to the Bottom of Shoes

9/28/2022
It seems like the sort of thing humans have used throughout our existence, but historically speaking, footwear is a relatively new invention. For hundreds of thousands of years, humans spent their entire lives barefoot. Then someone got the bright idea that it might be a good idea to put something between our feet and the ground, and from there, it was a direct path to Air Jordans, hiking boots, and flip-flops. Learn more about the development of the shoe and what our feet would look like if...

9/25/2022
Every so often, astronomers will publish photos taken with an astronomical telescope and say that the object they captured is so many billions of light years away.

Shakespeare's English

9/22/2022
English is a very strange language. It is a Germanic language where half of the words come from a Romance language.

Perhaps strangest of all, some of the greatest literary works in the English language are filled with words that aren’t even in the language anymore.

How The United States Congress Came to Be

9/18/2022
When the 13 American colonies decided to form a proper constitution, the single largest question which confronted them was how their legislature would be organized. This question was really the crux of the entire constitutional convention, and if it couldn’t be resolved, it was likely there would be no constitution. Once it was resolved, Congress evolved with its own set of rules and traditions. Many of the key elements of the United States Congress are, in fact, not required by the...
