A Brief History of the Pietà
  • A Brief History of the Pietà
  • Stuff You Missed in History Class

While Michelangelo’s sculpture of Mary holding the deceased body of Christ is the most famous depiction of that moment in art, that scene has been the focus of many works. And once, the famous version took a trip across the ocean.

Here’s a link to our notes and research.

Eddie Izzard has often joked about language from the silliness of Latin to why English speakers are so stubbornly monolingual. However, in late ‘90’s, Eddie decided that it wasn’t enough to joke about language; he wanted to joke in other languages. 

In 1997 he took the stage and did his first set in France in French. It wasn’t funny, he admits, but it was the start of a career goal to do stand-up in as many languages as possible. Eventually he did feel funny (and fluent) in French. Now, nearly two decades after that first French show, he has toured in not only French but German and Spanish. He intends to learn Russian and Arabic next.

The World in Words sat down with Izzard to find out why he’s decided to take his humor around the globe and how he’s managed to learn all these languages. (Warning: Parts of this podcast are definitely NSFW.)

Wastelands and Wyverns is a 5th edition real play dungeons and dragons podcast that takes place in a world destroyed by a magical cataclysm centuries ago. Every year a group of citizens are chosen as “pilgrims” to explore the wasteland in search of magical artefacts that could help save civilization. We follow the journey of a group of pilgrims as they are released into the wastelands and they struggle to survive…and occasionally make jokes about butts

Episode 55: Grave Encounters w/ Whitney Reynolds
  • Episode 55: Grave Encounters w/ Whitney Reynolds
  • We Have Such Films To Show You

Hey folks and welcome back! This episode we are talking about Canadian found-footage haunted-asylum film Grave Encounters. This movie was picked by our special guest this episode: Whitney Reynolds who you may know from her Twitter or I Haven’t Seen That, her podcast with previous show guest Mark Popham. You can enjoy the MP3 directly right here. 

“Grave Encounters” is both the name of the film and of the ghost-hunting reality show within the film. On-screen they’re True Believers and off-screen they are, charitably, skeptical of ghosts and related boogens. Locking themselves in an abandoned asylum, they become trapped in a maze during a seemingly eternal night. 

The film is simultaneously scary, goofy on purpose, goofy by accident and if it doesn’t frighten you it will almost definitely keep you entertained as the protagonists get picked off one by one by a pissed-off haunted house. Enjoy!
