About this Episode

Hola Passport faithful! Neil, Dré, and the Passport team are busy cooking up some new episodes of MisInfoNation - and maybe even a few other surprises, too. But in the meantime, we wanted to share a new show that we really love. Because we think you'll love it too. Don't Drink the Milk mixes history with a good dose of travel, pop culture, and controversy. The show explores the curious backstories of familiar things, and how they've changed as they moved through time and around the world – by force, by chance, or by choice. This episode takes us to Krakow tracing the origins of one of Team Passport's favorite foods. The bagel! Here's what they say: The bagel is in its rainbow era, but this beloved bread's journey goes way back. We're rounding off season one with a dense, doughy episode that's both scrumptious and surprising. We trace the humble bagel's roots to medieval Poland and follow its North American makeover (are you team New York or Montreal?). A snack for queens, laborers and trendsetters – here's the real story of the bagel. We hope you enjoy this episode, and if you do, why not give 'em a follow. You can binge all of Season 1 now and catch up just in time for the Season 2 in June.
