    Finally got episode 32 to download yesterday, in the interim had already listened through the bitter seeds audiobook after having seeing it in the show notes.

    Wow! I’m actually caught up on Gweek.

    RE kid encyclopedias:

    My parents bought us kids, while we were still in primary school (late 60s) a set of science encyclopedias. There were at least a dozen volumes, heavily illustrated. But they were odd illustrations. Almost all small (column width) and a little blurry, with a caption in the illustration.

    I figured out, a few years later, that the illos were almost all repurposed from educational film strips!
