For a lot of people, mention of Marco Polo conjures up images of idyllic summer afternoons at the pool. Others might be reminded of the popular Chinese bakery chain. In today's show we'll be talking about the man and his travels. While some contemporary scholars believe that many of his stories are at best exaggerated and at worst outright untrue, his importance as a historical figure and a link between East and West is undeniable. Following a brief discussion of the language related to Marco Polo, John and Jason will be discussing the modern phenomenon known as "Marco Polo Syndrome."
