137 - The History of Lego

This week's episode is all about the history of Lego! A company founded by a carpenter in Denmark that ended up taking the world by storm with their little bricks and their system of play! But it wasn't a smooth ride, there were (multiple) fires, deaths and financial difficulties along the way... but (spoiler alert) they're still going strong today!
