307: 300,000 Tons of Candy

It's our Halloween special. We could have gotten into how Halloween was transformed into a candy holiday, but we've been working too hard lately. We talk about the current state of the Halloween business, holiday movies, and what a couple of friend-having Chads we are. Plus, a special surprise story at the end.

Note from Ryan: Before any of you try to own me I said "vaccine for it", not "vaccine fart", my Irish accent came through.

Correction from @trillburne about whether the Batavian Republic happened before or after French invasion:

"Kind of in between. The Patriots rose up after it was already clear the stadhouder was defeated and republican troops were about to overrun the whole country, but before they had actually arrived in the Dutch heartland to occupy the country. it's probably more accurate to call the Batavian Revolution a response to the imminent success of the invasion rather than a response to the occupation"
