A spectacularly disaster-prone oil tanker and other curiosities


In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll take a tour through some oddities and unanswered questions from our research, including one-handed harp music, a statue with the wrong face, and a spider that saved Frederick the Great's life.

We'll also revisit the lost soldiers of World War I and puzzle over some curiously lethal ship cargo.
