Ever wonder why we use Roman numerals for stuff like Super Bowls but not for other stuff like our own age? (I turned XXXII last month.) Or how much you can blame our current partisan crisis on a ballot design in Florida? Or, more darkly, why the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" caught on? University of Washington associate professor Joseph Janes, who teaches in the Information Studies department, is here with a podcast and a book called Documents That Changed the Way We Live, which aims to answer all those questions, plus any others you might have, about, well, documents, those seemingly inert pieces of paper that control the world in ways we rarely consider.
