Special guest Karol (aka doom-rapper “garbageface”) drops by the podcast to tell us about possibly the original sticky situation. How could such a sweet treat turn deadly? Maybe by storing two million gallons of it in a paper-thin water tower? A cautionary tale about paying attention to warning signs, and the children running home with cups of molasses. WW1, building codes, and so much molasses.
