The Potato Famine

In this week's episode, Storm whistle inventor Dr. Wright discusses the causes of the Irish Potato Famine of the 1840s-50s.

 

 This episode's a bit of a downer as well. Let's all agree never to be as coldhearted as the people who were EXPORTING FOOD from Ireland during the Famine.
