Eerily prescient...Bill Gates is an oracle ;)

Solid, well produced episode. Finally an episode of "Explained" that is not produced by feminist/social activists -- every other one tries to "balance" history by singling out contribution by women and/or preaching on subjugation/victimization of this or that group.
