The BrainFood Show

The team at the wildly popular TodayIFoundOut YouTube channel discuss a variety of fascinating topics to help you feed your brain- everything from interesting history and science, to more practical knowledge like how to build and grow a YouTube channel and business, the ins and outs of copyright law, etc.


The Fascinating Origins of Everyday Things (Part 2)

In this episode of The Brain Food Show, we start off looking at that time the United States government banned pre-sliced bread… Really.

Next up, we have a brief message from a sponsor, Blinkist, which gives you the key ideas from more than 3,000 bestselling nonfiction books in just 15 minutes instead of having to listen to the full audiobook or read it all.

Moving on to the next section we look at who exactly invented what is so often compared to the “best things”- pre-sliced bread and the little saga to him getting bakers to accept his invention.

After that, we look at the surprisingly interesting saga of the invention and popularization of the shopping cart.

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!
