Ep03 – The Ocean Blue pt.2

     I finally get to Christopher Columbus. Somehow I manage to tie in little known historical curiosities like the Black Death, the Mongol Empire and the rise of the Ottoman Empire. We get to the Spanish colonization of the New World, the conquest of native peoples and the beginnings of slavery.
