Lock And Key

By Festival of the Spoken Nerd

In this episode, Matt exposes false advertising in the Jigsaw Puzzle industry, Steve matches up what we know about the immune system, and Helen writes a new tune that fits an old song. If you like detail, have a listen. You’ll fit right in: 

- Matt's bit (01:28)

- Steve's bit (19:23)

- Helen's bit (32:56)


Unfortunately our show notes are too big for Acast's margins to contain... head to the episode page to see everything.

Corrections and clarifications:

- Harlekintiger on twitter has recommended this video by Howard Ho about "We Don't Talk About Bruno" for another analysis of how it works and why it's so catchy. We didn't have time to go into as much detail as we would have liked, and this episode was already the longest of this series. Enjoy!
