A bit about Cotton Mather and the unknown man held in slavery to him (for a time) who saved Bostonians from smallpox.

The story is an odd mixture of religiousity and science.  Since vaccines could not be proven for years to come, it took a man of faith to spread the word that they were a good thing.

Also, the Year of 13 Candidates.  A Supreme Court plaintiff that wanted to lose.  The very small Lincoln family tree (though that's controversial)

And more, in this hodge-podcast.
