The World According to Leo

Mick from the Chatroom points out that while Bob Packett may have reached Episode 1000 in his History According to Bob much earlier (see Episode 838), Leo has done about 2,350 podcasts since he started.

Spontaneous Knotting

In Episode 796, Leo referred to a scientific study about the spontaneous knotting of cables.  Verena Fuchs wants Dick and Leo to know that that study, "Spontaneous Knotting of an Agitated String", won an Ig Nobel Prize for Physics in 2008, given by Improbable Research - for achievements that first make people LAUGH, then make them THINK.

Verena also thanks Dick and Leo for giving her a break from and worry, depression and desperation for not having had a job since 2007.
