In this Easter episode we discuss the power of belief and how it messes with otherwise brilliant minds... we also discuss Hares, Bill Hicks, rock-pooling and a sofa. Poets, authors and cuttlefish: better for you than a chocolate egg. More obscure too.
There is a bit of swearing and discussion of Christian beliefs.

In this episode we talk about the origins of the written word and how to go about writing... don't let a little thing like illiteracy stop you! Not all the Native American peoples decided to fight for their homelands... some had other tactics... like legislation. Sexy. Comedy writer (and history graduate) Andy Riley talks about one of the most pig headed, brilliant and ignorant geniuses in all History.
