This week's episode is in the form of a question - 'Why Do Girls Wear Pink and Boys Wear Blue?' Well, Matt has a bloody crack at answering this... he goes back to the 1800s to a time before the pink and blue dichotomy, all the way up to modern day, today! US President FDR gets a mention and historian and author Jo Paoletti's research is referenced a lot. It's an interesting time!
