40. The Past

The past should teach us how to do better in the future, but it's clear not everyone got that memo.

The past should teach us how to do better in the future, but it's clear not everyone got that memo. Mae, Ned and guest host Catherine Bohart are joined by quizmaster and comedian Dr Paul Sinha to rewind the VHS tape of life, the universe and everything. Ned takes on a quizmaster at his own game, Catherine looks into the world's oldest scapegoat: women, and Steve Ali relives his most cringe-worthy moment.

Co-created by Deborah Frances-White for The Spontaneity Shop and BBC Radio 4.

Produced by Al Riddell

Music by Mark Hodge and Omahrose, produced by Nick Sheldon.
