Everyday Einstein shares an interesting story from new Unknown History podcast host Giles Milton.
History and science are incredibly intertwined, so it's no surprise that historians often look to scientists to explain the unknown, and vice versa. There is a unique synergy between these two fields, which is why Everyday Einstein Sabrina Stierwalt, PhD, was thrilled to hear that Quick and Dirty Tips was starting a history podcast with bestselling author and historian Giles Milton.
This week, Everyday Einstein fans can listen to a fascinating story about how one man survived the sinking Titanic—by drinking Whiskey. Giles and his cohost debate the ways in which the alcohol could have actually fortified his body and kept him warm in the cold ocean until he was rescued.
