Ladies and gentlemen! Girls and boys! Today must be your lucky day because here at The Nonsense Bazaar, the Circus is in town. That’s right, imagine it now—the candy striped big top tent, the scent of peanuts and popcorn, the enormous crowd. But where did it all come from? And…where did it go? What do Jumbo Shrimp have to do with anything? In this episode, you’ll learn about how the Circus came to America, about some of the key figures in its development, the utter horror that is the geek show, and about how, in some ways, isn’t life itself is a bit of a circus?
