It's the hottest day of the year in the UK as this episode drops, so perfect weather to sprawl on a beach or under a tree and get a bit of extra knowledge about one of our favourite people. We chose Emperor Norton I of the United States as our world's worst monarch so in this bonus episode, paid for by our Patreon donors, Barry and Ben take a longer, even more loving look at our glorious leader. A San Francisco eccentric with a penchant for proclamations, excellent uniforms and a benevolent outlook on life, if you've never heard of him before then you're in for a treat. All hail the emperor!
