Episode 12

Vlad the Impaler VS Alexander Fleming

What does 15th Century Transylvania and modern vehicle models have in common? Absolutely nothing, but the girls somehow figure out a way to incorporate them into this episode. Kim tells us the painfully fascinating story of Vlad the Impaler: a bloodthirsty ruler that bore the nickname, Dracula. Then, Alyssa gets her nerd on and discusses Alexander Fleming: The man who discovered penicillin and modernized healthcare for years to come.
