City Living
Season 1  |  Episode 6  |  The History Channel  |  April 9, 2011

Join Dan in exploring how a couple of twitching frog's legs inspired Alessandro Volta to create the first electric battery and how during this period of change, people took more time to become cleaner and sweeter smelling.
