Usually I grab inspiration for my episodes from random instances during my week when I take a moment and wonder the history behind things we may take for granted. Well, this week, I went to the dentist and while I was in the chair, getting my teeth cleaned, I began wondering about this week’s topic.
And, I’m getting a crown put in on Thursday, so there’s a possibility I’ll come up with even more dental-themed topics for the near future, just to warn you.
I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind the Toothbrush.
The role of Horace Miner was played by Adam from Everyone Has a Podcast, and if you happen to be looking for a new toothbrush, Adam and his cohost Bryon have a promo code for a free Quip toothbrush refill by going to tryquip.com/ehap.
