(This episode was recorded before the early 2020 pandemic hiatus.) Brent and Jason discuss a tale of early 1800s political fisticuffs involving Kentucky Congressman Cassius Clay, for whom Muhammad Ali's father was named, who then passed his name to his son, the future world famous heavyweight boxing champion. He changed his name to Muhammad Ali in 1964 when he converted to Islam. The Fake History Sponsors are 1896's Spiral Fire Escape and Turtle Soup in 1948, with a segment on Improper Driving PSAs.
