Season 9, Episode 21: Chronicles of the Schmalkaldic League 3--"Genesis of the Complutensian Bible!"

In an episode notable perhaps only for the length of its title, Men in Charge take you back into the "Habsburg-punk" era of the Schmalkaldic League, 16th century Europe's last, best hope against the machinations of the Emperor Charles V. This episode, "Genesis of the Complutensian Bible," introduces a walking, talking book of holy scripture, a miniaturized inventor of the European printing press, King Gustavus Vasa's invention, "the Macerator," and intelligent, hungry vegetables--the Huzhon Frisee! Or maybe you've been relying on these episode descriptions and little too much and we're lying. You'll find out.
