Mike Shmidt & Other Musical Trivia
By: Jake Barber
Jake offered him up to Ben’s whim today, and had his feature’s topic given to him right before he presented. It led to a discussion about Billy Ray Cyrus, and other nonsense.

Estrogen in Fish
By: Ben Garlick
Ben had a very-well original research piece today on the show about the history of estrogen in fish, a report that was definitely not entirely made up. From the early research of Bernard Matthews, to his later hanging in Luxembourg, Ben talked about it all. Then, Jake corrected just a few minor mistakes he had made.

Street Signs Around Edinburgh
By: Henry Hawkins
Based on a recent call for more historical plaques around Edinburgh, Henry talked about a few of the plaques around the city. Plaques for the Ratho murderer, Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, Charles Darwin, & The Hammer of the Witches are just a few of the many interesting plaques around the city that were highlighted on the show today.
