Take Five #11: Canals

5 mins - Published Tue, Aug 2, 2016 by Anthony Hobday and Jack Marshall

We all need things delivered to us, right? You order a door mat on Amazon, you get it delivered to you. Well, how do you think they delivered things before the postal service existed?

That’s right – Canals. Which is why we’re discussing them on this week’s episode of Take Five. I mean, that’s not actually the reason. We pick these topics at random. But canals are very important which is why we know so much about them.

OK, I’m going to be straight with you (Like a canal!) – I don’t know anything about canals. Just… just listen to the episode.


Take Five

Take Five is a show where we pick a random one-word topic, suggested by our listeners, and discuss it for five minutes - no research allowed! It's the shortest podcast on Earth!

... Possibly. We didn't check. So if you like short things and people who have no idea what they're talking about, listen to Take Five! What have you got to lose? Well; except 0.0000001% of your life?
