Stonehenge: Britain's Prehistoric Legos | 221

Stonehenge: Britain's Prehistoric Legos | 221

Not much description needed here. This week we talk Stonehenge, the prehistoric British monument built by aliens for Druidic sacrifices. Ok, well, the prehistoric and British parts are at least true. But WHO actually built it and WHEN? HOW did they do it? WHY do we still let Conspiracy Bot on the show? We travel to merry ol' England and ask the tough questions this week. Plus, do round things count as wheels? How much grease is too much? And the pros and cons of building boats out of tree trunks. All of that and more of the podcast that has never been to Stonehenge but we've certainly been...well, never mind. This is Hysteria 51.
