In a different kind of episode, our intrepid Detailers reveal three facts that they just could not believe the first time they heard them, but turned out to be true. The reproductive habits of barnacles, the unexpected mating call of the tawny owl and a freaky formula that draws a picture of itself all get the Unnecessary Detail treatment:

- Helen's bit (01:12)

- Matt's bit (16:08)

- Steve's bit (34:12)


SHOW NOTES: 

Unfortunately our show notes are too big for Acast's margins to contain... head to the episode page to see everything.


Corrections and clarifications:

- A few weeks after we recorded this episode, New York Times published an extremely detailed and well-researched article debunking the "Birds Released In Central Park By Shakespeare Fan" story. Read it here, with thanks to listener Joshua Miller for sending over this link.
