Tax Freedom Day and the Miao Rebellions -- Over taxation, castration and a forced labor toll will cause rebellion for decades until people are allowed to pay a fee instead of working off their government debt.
May Day: Sleeping with the Enemy --The King of England is thinking with the little head instead of the big head. And... witches!
The First French Dictionary and a Dying Language -- Breton is a dying language today but back then it was in use in parts of France. I also talk about the revival of a dead language.... Hebrew and a personal story.
