Episode 28: Boston Molasses Flood

Special guest Karol (aka doom-rapper "garbageface") drops by the podcast to tell us about possibly the original sticky situation.  How could such a sweet treat turn deadly?  Maybe by storing two million gallons of it in a paper-thin water tower?  A cautionary tale about paying attention to warning signs, and the children running home with cups of molasses.  WW1, building codes, and so much molasses.
