Author Naomi Alderman drops in this week. You might recognise her name from her award-winning work Disobedience and a new but already highly-acclaimed novel The Lessons, currently 'Book at Bedtime' on Radio 4.
But not just that! She's a gee-eek. She really is. She was the lead writer on Perplex City, she's a high-flying games journalist and, we learn - not entirely to our surprise - a Doctor Who fan. Mainly though, she's brilliant fun.
Dave's with us again, and we're back in China on our journey Around the World in 80 Snacks, where we polish off last week's savoury course with something sweet and surprising. This episode also reveals more of Roo and Leila's embarrassing obsessions, and even more embarrassing omissions from our geek culture databanks.
If you buy a hand-made tape of the podcast this week, you'll very likely get some free Perplex City cards with it! Oh and this is the last week you can get a free audiobook through our Audible sponsorship, so head over there now or miss out on great works of literature... forever.
