If there are more AIRCoholics interested in History, I recommend the Terry Deary´s collection “Horrible Histories” (box of books): Twenty books of British history from the stone age to the second world war, written in a funny and amusing way.
( https://www.amazon.es/Terry-Deary/e/B001ITTQZW/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_3?qid=1494924246&sr=8-3  )

By the way, Reza: the word you were struggling to say was: MUJERIEGO (womanizer)

Hi to Raquel Gonzalez Herrero from Valencia who also got the questions right, except question 2. She said Queen Victoria, but the current monarch surpassed Queen Victoria in 2015.

Bitte Folgen | Der Serien-Talk - s02e13 (24: Legacy, Stand-Up Comedy Talk)  

Herzlich Willkommen zu einer weiteren Episode von "Bitte Folgen"... die schmerzhaft verdeutlicht, dass die Fülle von Inhalten, durch die sich die letzte Episode noch auszeichnete, anscheinend nur der Anwesenheit von Gast Matthias Edlinger zu verdanken war, denn in ziemlich genau der gleichen Zeit schaffen es Roger, Jonas und der Blitz dieses Mal tatsächlich nur eine EINZIGE Serie zu besprechen! Und zwar die Thrillerserie "24: Legacy", bei der es sich um einen (leicht verspäteten) Ableger von "24" handelt, DER Serie mit Kiefer Sutherland in der Hauptrolle, die sehr erfolgreich für neun Staffeln (und einen Film) von 2001 bis 2014 über die Bildschirme flimmerte... Ok, zugegeben, das Trio mit zwei Kappen unterhält sich dann auch noch über das ein oder andere Stand-Up Comedy Special von wegweisenden Comedians wie Richard Pryor, George Carlin oder Eddie Murphy, aber im Grunde kratzen die Jungs auch da nur an der Oberfläche... weil sie mal wieder so viel Zeit mit Unfug verschwenden! In diesem Sinne: Matthias, komm' bitte, BITTE wieder!

EPISODE 19 Featuring Dan Carlin  

"If I can add some nuance and complexity and some context and compassion. If I can get people to think about walking a mile in the other guy's moccasins, or pretend like you want to, I can feel like I'm adding something that is unusual. And it's a little bit shocking and upsetting to me that it is unusual. When people say it's so refreshing, you wonder why it's refreshing to try to see the other person's viewpoint? Shouldn't that just be how we are?" — Dan Carlin 

“It’s an uplifting story with millions of dead people” — Dan Carlin 

My favorite podcaster and one of my favorite humans joins me for an epic chat ranging across topics including:

 

Nuanced ThinkingIdeological PrisonsUnderstanding vs. justifying Judging the pastHitler & Genghis Khan, Nazis & Communists Spaniards, Aztecs, human sacrificeTaoism Twisted SOBsWhy do we focus so much on war?The three elements of Hardcore History Conflict-driven story SexGladiators for World Peace as the antidote to a nuclear holocaustHunting and gathering peoples Graham Hancock and history before history Gobekli Tepe Old school toughness and the arc of civilizationsDan Carlin for President!

Industrial Espionage  

From the East German Stasi to modern-day cyber hackers, Theo Leggett takes a furtive look at the people seeking to steal businesses' most valuable secrets, and what can be done to stop them. Researcher Erik Meyersson explains how, at the height of the Cold War, the DDR - with the help of a network of thousands well-placed human assets - was able to produce cheap copies of one of IBM's most advanced computers. Theo heads to Spymaster - a London high street retailer of James Bond-esque gadgets - to discover the modern tools of the trade, and to speak to Steve Durbin of the Information Security Forum, who explains how the greatest fear of big corporations that he works for is of being hacked. The most prolific modern-day cyber-thief of corporate intellectual property is China, say some experts. Theo speaks to John Carlin, formerly an attorney general at the US Department of Justice, about his efforts to fend them off.
