Coca Cola with Coffee

Coca Cola with Coffee

It's the cocaine episode, err, the Coca Cola with Coffee episode! Steph tells us the fascinating history of the Coca Cola company and how they came to create Coke with Coffee. Will cocaine infused Coca-Cola cure the founder, John Stith Pemberton, of his morphine addiction? When did Coca-Cola remove coca leaves from Coca-Cola? It's more recently than you'd expect. Find out all this and more in this week's episode!

"I just want to say, it sounds like the 1850s were maybe going to be kinda fun."
