Who was John D Rockerfeller? What did Standard Oil do exactly that was so bad?

Roblox is might be one of the biggest games no one's heard of and a big part of that is their audience. Roblox dominates the younger gamer space, with around 75% of kids in the United States logging in and a massive concurrent user base. They have a great model, giving revenue to game devs who use their platform and making game development accessible to even tweens. Despite all of this... They still operate at a loss. So what does it mean for the future of Roblox to go public on the stock market? Aw yeah we're talking stonks!

A Tour of Hades - The Ancient Greek Underworld - Extra Mythology

Keep your number and your money with Ting, and get a $25 credit with no contract by using our link http://extracredits.ting.com/ We all know the stars of Hades are the Greek gods and dear Zagreus but the locale deserves some recognition too! So hop on the Ferryman's boat and let's take a tour of the Underworld, Supergiant style. We'll talk about the realms of the dead like Tartarus, the Asphodel Meadows (which aren't as firey in the original greek), and of course, the famed fields of Elysium. We'll talk about what kind of souls are in each, and even the very special VIP spot for those who manage to reincarnate as heroes three times throughout their life. ---- Thanks for participating in this week's discussion! ---- Check out our community guidelines so we can have MORE high-quality conversations: https://www.extracredits.site/extra-credits-community-code-of-con ---- Want to support the people who make this show? ---- Become a Patreon Member & Vote on future Extra History episodes! http://bit.ly/EHPatreon Or show off your fandom with our merch! http://extracredits.store/ ---- Want more Extra Credits?

History of Vaccines - Killing Smallpox - Extra History

If you live in Minnesota, learn more at https://freechildcheckups.com and https://GetCTC.com. If you don’t, check here: https://www.medicaid.gov/medicaid/benefits/epsdt/index.html. Vaccines have been instrumental in our modern view of health and healthcare. But they haven't always been around and there's been more than some misinformation on what they are and how they work. So how did we even discover vaccines in the first place? It started with a disease that had plagued humanity for so long, it seemed like it was just a natural part of living. But thanks to the work of Edward Jenner, soon smallpox would become a disease known only to history. One of two diseases that humanity had managed to completely eradicate and all thanks to vaccines and vaccination.
