Because I Said So! : The Truth Behind the Myths, Tales, and Warnings Every Generation Passes Down to Its Kids - Ken Jennings Here's how the audio works:Ken Jennings introduces the topic in an exclamatory voice.He gives some anecdotes, sometimes personal, about the myth.He shares some research about the myth.He might throw in a joke that makes him sound like your friend's corny dad.And finally he gives a verdict of true, false, mostly true, or mostly false.Each topic lasts about 3-5 minutes.There are a few times where he refers to people with less mainstream ideas as crackpots, and I suspect a fair number of people in the Madison area would fit his definition and possibly be slightly offended.I enjoyed it, and actually learned a lot that will be helpful to me, and will probably affect what I say to my kids. I will now dry my hands differently in public restrooms.
