  1. Something True 2.8: Odyssée Guillaume le Gentil didn’t find purpose in the church, seeking it instead in the stars. In 1761, he participated in a global astronomical mission to observe the Transit of Venus from various stations across the globe. But the course of science never did run smooth, and le Gentil’s travels would scatter him far and wide, across time and space, and from toilet-bound depression to true illumination.

  2. Something True 2.6: L'Arme X Nobody in France had seen anything like it. The boy, Tarrare, could eat whatever he wanted, in enormous quantities, and never felt full or put on weight. Tarrare was just hungry. He was hungry all the time. And as he wandered Paris, eating anything he pleased, he would, in turn, be swallowed up by forces great and sinister.

  3. Something True 2.5: The Trip to Telegraph Creek Together they set out to chart wildest Canada: a management consultant, a dental student, a Hollywood cinematographer, an ex-sniper, a mysterious treasure hunter, and a cowboy. Nobody believed in their expedition, saying things like, “You don't have the experience” and, “Your horses are diseased.” But Charles E. Bedaux was determined. For him this trip wasn’t about making maps, but the measure of a man. Read a full transcript of this episode on the Something True website. Follow Something True on Twitter @atruepodcast.

  4. Something True 2.4: Okaasan In the 16th century, the Oda and Tokugawa clans sought to unite feudal Japan under their rule. These were big and dangerous boys, but the biggest threat to their political alliance wasn’t any enemy clan, but a rude mother-in-law and a young woman who would do anything to protect her family.

  5. Something True 2.2: Baatar What if Genghis Khan died, just before he really got going? Thanks to a blacksmith's son called Jelme, we don't have to wonder. We might, however, wonder why Jelme's heroic rescue required so much blood and so little clothing—but thanks to a blacksmith's podcast called Something True, we don't have to wonder.

    I really liked the new spider man.
  8. Something True Preview: Something True Season 2 The opera singer who burned down a convent. A naked man who saved the life of Genghis Khan. An astronomer who ate bad beef. These are true stories, but they aren't about people who changed the world. You won't read about them on the Wikipedia page for "history", or hear them on a podcast about trains. These stories are of weird creeps and unlucky management consultants, whose lives and legacies crumbled underneath the indifferent march of time. Only July 16th, Something True returns, with these stories, and more, from the footnotes of history. Subscribe at somethingtrue.net. Listen on the Episode Page Listen on Soundcloud Listen in iTunes

  10. Anyone Remember?

    He has quoted that aloud in my presence before and I can’t remember if it was on air.
  11. Anyone Remember?

    This is an unlikely-to-be-answered deep cut, and may not even exist, but is there an episode in which Chris says “for years I’ve been perfecting my algorithms” in a cheesy German accent?
  12. Psychonauts 2

    Looks really nice.
