Though the show is accredited by the Institute of Human Knowledge and Hygiene, it is our ongoing mission to chafe against logic and proof, find meaning in obfuscation, and wrest truth from fact once and for all. &nbsp;This month, the topic of the show will be the Belle Epoque, a period of tremendous cultural growth in the late 1800s. &nbsp;Some say it was the last time we were hopeful as a global community. &nbsp;We at the Encyclopedia Show are always hopeful though! We know you&#39;ll enjoy the show.</p><p>More on this event <a href="http://encyclopediashow.com">here.</a></p><p>&nbsp;</p></p> Thu, 04 Apr 2013 12:54:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/encyclopedia-show-belle-epoque-106485 Encyclopedia Show: Cheerleading! http://www.wbez.org/encyclopedia-show-cheerleading-104114 <p><p>The<a href="http://encyclopediashow.com"> Encyclopedia Show</a> is a live variety extravaganza that commissions local and touring artists and experts from many disciplines to use their individual talents to present a verbal and musical encyclopedia entry each month.
