Goofs

The narrator asserts that the phrase "saved by the bell" originates from coffins with bell attachments that those buried alive could use to be rescued. This is incorrect. In fact, the expression is boxing slang and it came into being in the latter half of the 19th century. A boxer who is in danger of losing a bout can be 'saved' from defeat by the respite signaled by bell that marks the end of a round. See more »

The term "saved by the bell" derived from boxing. The myth that it derived from graveyard bells is just that--a myth. True, it's called Lore, but that educational tidbit was totally a lie and contaminates the intergrity of the entire podcast/show for me. For other viewers--always question even shows that claim to be "educational". They don't always get their facts straight.
