After a little time off the guys needed a bit of a pick me up. For Episode 33 of the show they discuss caffeine drinks and our dependency upon them.
Listen to the show to hear more!
Supposedly, in the 9th Century an Ethopian goat herder named Kaldi noticed that his goats were full of energy after having eaten the berries from a particular plant. His story doesn’t appear in writing until 1671 so the truth behind it is a bit questionable. After several years the bitter pick me up made its way across Africa and into Europe. Eventually it even made it to North America to be sold for $6 mixed with sugar and milk.
The guys also discuss colas, including the original cola – Coca Cola. They then move on to talk about tea, energy drinks and the caffeine quantities in various beverages. Did you know that there are 330mg of caffeine in a 16oz Starbucks coffee or a whopping 1.2mg in Canada Dry Diet cola?
Have a listen and get all the details and sometimes mindless conversation.
