In this episode, Mike tells us about Operation Paperclip, the US government’s initiative to repatriate German scientists after WWII, or “Adopt a Nazi” as we’ve decided to call it. Many of the Germans were Nazi Party members, and some were involved in some of the most horrific and unsavoury parts of the war.
We also talk about temperate caves on the moon, how the actress Hedy Lamar helped invent Wi-Fi, and Mike rants about the current state of the UK government.
