This week we figure out if Michael Gove was talking rubbish about the First World War (spoiler: he was!), discover if monogamy is dead, find out why science’s favourite metaphor won’t work any more… and much, much more!

This week we have an exclusive clip of the fourth man on the moon (!!!), along with some more back to earth chat. We talk Golden Dawn and the rise of the Far Right in Europe with Yiannis Baboulias, missing Doctor Who episodes with Mike Hall, as well as take a critical look at a High Court decision on MMR and some claims being made by an advisor to Michael Gove. Plus we go to a Wikipedia Editathon.
