Calman, Cooke, Lowe

John Lloyd and Sarah Millican are joined by comedian Susan Calman, artist with extraordinary reproductive powers Adam Lowe and TV naturalist and sloth appreciator Lucy Cooke.

This week, the Professor of Ignorance John Lloyd and his curator Sarah Millican welcome the comedian, Fearer of Raisins and Collector of Thimbles, Susan Calman; an artist who has made an art out of copying art and claims that he has actually slept with the Mona Lisa, Adam Lowe; and a TV naturalist who admits that when she talks to animals, all they want to talk about is food, fighting and, well, mating, Lucy Cooke.

This week, the Museum's guests discuss what Fifty Shades of Grey has in common with Capt. Kirk and Mr Spock making sweet exoplanetary love; how salt could be the building material of the future if only it didn't rain; and why living on a small island will either turn you into a pygmy or a giant.

The show was researched by Anne Miller and Stevyn Colgan of QI.

The producers were Richard Turner and James Harkin.

It was a BBC Radio Comedy Production.
