    Weekly British podcast series produced and presented by the research team behind the BBC Two game show QI. Each researcher presents their favourite fact that they have come across that week, but has not made it into that week’s QI programme. The most regular presenters of the podcast are James Harkin, Andrew Hunter Murray, Anna Ptaszynski and Dan Schreiber, although other QI researchers also make appearances, and there are guest presenters on some episodes. There are over 240 ‘jolly’ episodes, each packed with ‘impressive and silly facts’ (The Guardian). For example, we may learn why the Italian film director Jesus Franco was once deemed by the Catholic Church as the most dangerous director alive or that the first sandwich was not made by the Earl of Sandwich.
