The Third Foot – Christopher Columbus (Bonus Episode)
As the famous rhyme doesn’t go, ‘In Twenty Twenty, Van der Velde and McStay / discovered Columbus was really from Norway’. After we were contacted by a Norwegian listener, Petter, with news from the north that there is a local legend in the tiny village of Hyen that Christopher Columbus was actually Norwegian. Not only that, there are TWO monuments in the village, to both the man himself and to ‘Columbus’s Egg’. Well, that was all we needed to set us off on a winding route in a bonus episode where we discover the mad stories about CC’s origins, how exactly to balance an egg, and where on Earth is Atlantis.
