This week we find out about the Jesus & Mo controversy at the LSE, talk about the mathematics of The Simpsons with author Simon Singh, and discover some misconceptions about evolution with Henry Gee (spoiler: he still thinks evolution happened). We also have Chris sending a reality bullet into the heart of Assassin’s Creed’s dodgy history.
