E11: “Totally Getting Lost” (with Ben Thompson!) – Q & A
Ben Thompson returns! In this Season Finale Q and A, “Epic Fails” co-authors Erik Slader and Ben Thompson reunite to tackle the key issues, like who would win in a fist fight – Teddy Roosevelt or Benedict Arnold?, Carthaginian war elephants – pros vs cons?, and most importantly, whether or not a hot dog qualifies as a sandwich?
*You can meet them both at the Smithsonian Museums in Washington DC on Saturday, May the 4th where they’ll be promoting the release of their latest book, “The Age of Exploration: Totally Getting Lost”!
Music Clips: “The Warriors of Tide” – Black Tide (2009), “Alexander the Great” – Iron Maiden (1986)
