Another mention for my home city of Birmingham believing crap. First it was the city of science quiz where people thought time travel was possible. (It is of course, only British time travel is possible). Now it's Manager Barry Fry when he brought gypsies to Birmingham City Football Club to lift a gypsy curse which has caused the team to be shite for decades. This may have been more a publicity stunt.
In it's defence it was home to the Lunar society en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_Society_of_Birmingham#_ , a real life 'Super Science Academics and Industrialists Friends' team.
There was a weird bit in the podcast were some one said "Steve and Jay" and my mind automatically expected the word Gould to be uttered next.
