Season 2 Episode 4, titled “Beans and Britain” is about two little stories from history. First, we dive into the story of beans across the world and how beans have always been a part of humanity since the dawn of agriculture. Second, we get into the diplomatic debacle known as the MacCartney Mission between the British and the Chinese Empires. This episode returns to the ideals of “History Happy Hour,” with two fun and whimsical topics. Kick back and join me for some historical stories.

I am a very enthusiastic history buff and lover of telling stories. I needed some place to pour out all the knowledge I learn on my own, so listen in to hear the latest and greatest things I am obsessing over!
