Carmen Sandiego - 017

***FLASH*** National treasure stolen from New York.  The treasure has been identified as the Statue of Liberty’s torch. Male suspect reported at the scene of the crime. Your assignment: Track the thief from New York to his hideout and arrest him!  You must apprehend the thief.  Good luck, rookie!

Colin leads the chase down memory lane to find out what has made the Carmen Sandiego franchise so successful for all these years.  A trailblazer in edutainment, WITWICS began teaching kids history and geography lessons via clever crime cases.  The concept from the original video game was then taken to the living room in gameshow form and introduced the world to the one and only Rockapella.  The guys cover everything from the original productions, plus the slew of extensions in Ms. Sandiego’s stash.

The episode closes with Jamie masterminding a Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego version of Cryptogeekology.  You might be surprised who comes out on top.
