Episode Summary

We're back at long last with an all new show, and what a show it is! You know carrots are great for your eyes (your mom wasn't just saying that to make you eat 'em), but did you know this familiar vegetable has a history even more colorful than its nutrient-packed flesh? Did you know carrots weren't always orange? Did you know the ancient Greeks made love potions from them? Stranger than fiction is the long history of the carrot. Passion, patriotism, beta carotene‚ from windmills to Caligula, this episode has it all! Special thanks to illustrator Hyein Lee, for letting us use her wonderful illustrations in today's show. And a big hello to Javier Menendez and his English class from beautiful Puerto de Luarca, Spain, hopefully we'll have a chance to visit you soon!moreless
