Happy anniversary! To celebrate a year of trapped travel, we're covering a place we've both been in the before times, and fulfilling one of our top listener requests to boot. Medieval Times Dinner Tournament is famous for its pick-and-choose approach to historical "accuracy", and that one Jim Carrey movie.

Comic readers across America were promised that for only $5 they could learn the ultimate fighting system, and the art of the death touch. That promise was made by Count Dante, one of the most colorful and controversial figures in martial arts history. Born John Keehan, Dante's life seems out of place in the real world, never mind his fabricated boasts.

Sacco & Vanzetti

On this episode Grant takes us back 100 years to a fatal robbery at a shoe factory, and the legacy of the men who had the crime pinned on them. Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti came to America searching for prosperity, and found the brutality of exploitation and prejudice. The greatest weight of which fell on them when they were executed by a justice system bent on quashing an ideology, rather than seeking either justice or truth.

In this episode Grant teaches us about the Benin Bronzes, thousands of exquisite pieces of art that are not made of bronze, and not in Benin. And to talk about this specific crime of colonialism, we have to talk about the empire it came from, and the shifting dynamic between Europe and the world as capitalism and white supremacy developed side-by-side.

ACT UP

In the 1980s America's health infrastructure failed to adequately respond to an epidemic, which showed in greater contrast failures across society. This week, Grant is teaching us about one group's commitment to correct that failure through civil disobedience. By prioritizing disruption over image, and relentlessly claiming the moral high ground, AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power drastically improved the lives of people living with HIV and reduced its spread.
