I’m going to keep the links up for donating to end bigotry and oppression in our country. Those protesters are getting stuff DONE so support them! Black Lives Matter!

This is an incomplete list of places to donate, including bail funds for various cities around the country. Check it out.
Here are the links relating to the episode:
This article has some holes, but it details some of the ways Carroll may have been a little creepy around young girls, particularly Alice Liddell.
10 Random Facts About Lewis Carroll.
10 Things You Didn’t Know About Alice in Wonderland.
An interesting article about de-stigmatizing mental illness for children (relevant to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland AND Winnie the Pooh).
Some beautiful illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. You’ll find that some are black and white and some are colored in. Well, there was a nursery version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland released that was shorter and had a select few of the Tenniel illustrations included that were colored in! More party trivia for you!
Great episode, and I especially enjoyed learning about the origin of the Cheshire cat!
Thank you, Josh! I LOVE little bits of trivia, and was tickled at the Cheshire cat bit! I’m glad you liked it too!
