In the spring of 1943, US torpedo boat No. 109 gets shattered to pieces by a Japanese destroyer. Some of the crew members make a miraculous escape, and one of them goes on to create history. Over 8000 miles across the oceans in Gujarat India, a team of paleobotanists find 37 million year old fossil. This fossil is of an object which is often mailed across the world by tourists who visit Hawaii. But what could possibly connect these three wildly different events spread across space and time? This week, starting a new series, Fabulous Foods, we discover the fascinating story of the role this object played in shaping globaly trade and politics, influencing World Wars and the Cold War. Tune in, and discover the humble lessons that this wonderful product, which is older than Homo Sapiens, holds for us.
