The Modern Bar Cart Podcast

Jul 5, 2018

In this episode, we interview author and etymologist Mark Forsyth on why and how people have been getting drunk from the very beginning of human history.

Some of the things we discuss include:

  • Why Hitler is partially responsible for spam email
  • One important reason why you shouldn’t challenge a Malaysian Tree Shrew to a drinking competition
  • Why the “drunken monkey hypothesis” explains a lot about how and why people drink the way they do.
  • The difference between wet and dry cultures
  • One old-fashioned workaround for observant muslims to sneak in a quick drink by screaming loudly and suddenly.
  • How to feed your dead ancestors with drunken vomit
  • And much, much more.
