Good evening!
Avatar Thu. 4/25/19 6:13pm northguineahills:

wasn't Zheng He a eunuch?
  Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/25/19 6:14pm adriene:

He was! And every single documentary about him really likes to talk about it.

@Rev: It's the only thing my mind is good for, I go to various trivia nights at bars to win free booze. (will have to stop once I start a jobby job again).

(I have tabs I couldn't possibly use up in a lifetime, so, I got that going for me, if I could just convert them to US currency).

I regularly listen to the Chinese History podcast, done by Laszlo Montgomery, who has impeccable Mandarin. Recommended: www.teacup.media

You could apply for a spot on Jeopardy! if you haven't yet, ngh. But some ringer is winning everything there recently, I heard.

Is this the same Adriene of WnB fame?

welp, looks like a real giraffe to me; i'm convinced.

Camelopardalis. (Camel Leopard.)
Avatar Thu. 4/25/19 6:44pm northguineahills:

Although, the Gavin Menzies' book, "1421, the year China discovered America" is considered quackery by most historians, it is considered very possible that Zheng He got far up the current Russian coast close to the Bering Straight.

@Ben Abs: yes.

hi all
Avatar Thu. 4/25/19 6:54pm northguineahills:

The Jiajing Emperor was a bit eccentric. Plus, there was a bit of internal revolt, so he turned inwards as he was afraid of merchants getting wealthy to the point they could be a threat to his rule, so, he cut China off...
Avatar Thu. 4/25/19 6:54pm northguineahills:

Back to washing dishes, thanks, Adriene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 4/25/19 6:56pm ultradamno:

I usually pair this show with Zoviet France's "A Duck In A Tree" podcast, they go well together.
  Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/25/19 6:56pm adriene:

Thanks for listening all - more explorers in future shows
