Meg and Mari are back a little sooner than you would expect! They have started up season 2 and didn’t take it easy as they tackled the original 1001 Nights in their opening episode. Here’s a quick peak at some of the things discussed in this episode:

- Richard Francis Burton
- The over-arching Arabian Nights’ story
- How Eunuchs became Eunuchs
- A Man gets embarrassed by farts
- What the heck is vermicelli cake? (Seriously about half an hour of us talking about vermicelli cake has been cut) and so much more!
