How Freak Shows Worked

Not too long ago, people would pay money to gawk and stare at a performer with a physical disformity. They were called freakshows and they began in large part thanks to P.T. Barnum, whose circus we still enjoy today. Sounds awful, but some of these performers became rich folks as a result. Exploitive? You decide.

Twin siblings are common enough that most people know a pair or two, but why does twinning occur? Josh and Chuckers explain where twins (and babies) come from, discuss different types of twins and debunk some "twin myths" in this episode.

Ronnie and Donnie Galyon: Arguably the Sweetest Conjoined Twins Ever

Our fan turned friend, Kodachrome, who sends us all of the delightful Photoshopped pics of Chuck and me, also sends us songs we've inspired him to record, photos of stupid nature he takes on his hikes and links to interesting news stories. He's become a buddy to us, even though we have no idea what he looks like and have never held a verbal conversation with him.
