Have you ever imagined yourself as Scott Bakula's character in Quantum Leap, traveling back in time into a disastrous scenario? For many of us, it would spell doom. Luckily, today's guest Cody Cassidy - author of How to Survive History: How to Outrun a Tyrannosaurus, Escape Pompeii, Get Off the Titanic, and Survive the Rest of History's Deadliest Catastrophes - is here to keep us alive.
Cassidy has written a string of fascinating and entertaining history books, including And Then You're Dead and Who Ate the First Oyster? In today's conversation, he and James run through ways to survive archetypically horrific events in Earth's history. They attempt to survive the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs. They try to avoid contracting the bubonic plague. They try to decide whether presenting dental floss to a king would keep them from the gallows!
History may be the most dangerous place on earth, but that doesn’t mean you can’t visit. And with a copy of How to Survive History, some penicillin, and this episode of the podcast, you just might make it out alive.
