Good episode? Give it some love!
This week on how did it come to this? We had to take the long way round for centuries, leading lots of people to ask. Isn’t there a better way? Many tried and failed. Many thought it couldn’t be done. Many thought it was an insurmountable geographical obstacle. The Suez Canal. How did the dream of the pharaohs, become the highway of international trade. Are artificial rivers really a good idea? How important is international shipping? Does a 193.3 km canal belong to a company or the world? Was a blow up doll actually piloting the Evergreen when it turned sideways? Ultimately, how did it come to this?
