One of the world’s oldest condiments - Dan Kwartler

Trace the history of ketchup, from the condiment’s origins in 3rd century China to becoming a staple of American cuisine. -- In the mid-18th century, England was crazy for ketchup. The sauce was a staple, but this ketchup wasn’t the ubiquitous red goop you’re familiar with today. In fact, it was a sweet and savory brown sauce that didn’t even have tomatoes in it. So where did this early ketchup come from, and how did it become the dip we know and love? Dan Kwartler traces the condiment's history. Lesson by Dan Kwartler, directed by Denys Spolitak.

The science of laughter - Sasha Winkler

Explore the common scientific theories about why humans laugh, and how this universal behavior evolved. -- Isn’t it odd that, when something’s funny, you might show your teeth, change your breathing, become weak and achy in some places, and maybe even cry? In other words, why do we do this bizarre thing that is laughter? Since there’s no archaeological record of laughter, it’s impossible to say exactly how and why it evolved, but scientists have some theories. Sasha Winkler digs into the reflex.
