It’s our first episode with a special guest! We take a look at the Simpsons episode “Bart the Genius”. Tom has a revelation about the “Staphylococci virus”, Garreth tells us about all things banana related, and we are joined by Simon Singh, author of “The Simpsons and their Mathematical Secrets” to talk about the maths in the episode.
For the history bit, Tom tells the story of the storming of the Stasi headquarters in the former East Germany, which happened the day after “Bart the Genius” was first broadcast.
