Season 6, Ep. 10

What a way to end the season! This week the lads catch up with the head elf from the BBC's brilliant QI TV show, James Harkin. Here is a man who brings the trivia in a ridiculously impressive way. He's got facts and he knows how to use them. In tribute to some of their worst jokes on the podcast so far part 1 contains an explanation of the Tumbleweed plant.

  • 7. Sharks Have No Bones And Your Cat Is A Psychopath!

    01:10:23
    The fact that sharks have no bones is mind blowing. The fact that this fact is merely one of about 20 mind-blowing shark facts on this week’s podcast is even more mind blowing! All of these facts (and something terrible about shark reproduction!) are brought to us by the amazing Jaida Elcock, Shark Scientist, PhD student and co-founder of Minorities In Shark Sciences.

    This week the lads are joined by historian and comedian (not necessarily in that order) Dr Ciaran Barlett to talk about Roman triumphs.
