In this episode of The Brain Food Show, we are looking at the difference between a number of things, kicking it off with the difference between BCE/CE and BC/AD systems of dating and the rather fascinating story of how those systems came to be.

We also have a brief message from a sponsor, Skillshare. Help support this show and learn a lot of interesting new skills, as well as TWO MONTHS FREE using the following link https://www.skillshare.com/brainfood

Up next we dive into a bunch of “difference betweens” American and British English and how the two main versions of English diverged in the first place, which it turns out mostly had to do with just one man and started basically immediately after the American Revolution. Various other things covered include why Americans say Math and the British say Maths, where the word soccer came from and why it’s the correct name for the sport ;-), and more!

On another note, if you could do us a huge favor and rate and review this show in whatever podcasting platform you’re using (including hopefully giving us some feedback related to the new format), we would be extremely grateful. Thanks!
