Description

Learn the fascinating history and trivia behind the everyday items we take for granted — from the host of the popular podcast The Story Behind, Emily Prokop!

Many of us learn about the major inventions that shape our world. But we too often overlook the objects we use every day. In The Story Behind, Emily Prokop, creator of the Webby Award nominated podcast, explores the who, how, and huh? of everything from Band-Aids to bubble gum; hypnosis to Hula Hoops; and lullabies to lead pipes. Along the way, she demonstrates how the major events of history – from wars, plagues and revolutions to historic achievements and discoveries – have influenced some of the world’s most pervasive inventions. From food, fashion and games to transit and modern technology, The Story Behind offers a closer look at the things closest to us.
