That Was Genius - A Funny History Podcast

Mansa Musa’s Massive Sack (journeys week) - That Was Genius - Episode 3

February 13, 2019

Journeys is the topic this episode, which features Mansa Musa - the man so rich he ruined the economy of the Middle East by going on holiday there - a stroke of marketing genius by a viking leader, and quite a lot of references to snooker-based game show Big Break.

Welcome to That Was Genius: A weekly podcast looking at the weirder side of history. Two blokes. A 12-hour time difference. An immature sense of humour. And 10,000 years of human civilisation.

Join Sam Datta-Paulin (he likes history and lives in Britain) and Tom Berry (he also likes history but lives in New Zealand), for a weekly reflection on the bold, the brilliant... And the downright strange.

From bizarre events and stories to equally odd inventions, barely a day goes by without something incredible (or incredibly stupid) happening around the world.

We upload new episodes every Wednesday night (UK time).
