It’s Not Rocket Surgery this week – Episode 243 – As much as we’d love it to not be a thing, coronavirus is still dominating the news, so the crew talk about COVID19 again, going a little deeper again… this time on teleworking and the use of technology during the crisis and beyond. They also talk about other stuff, like pterosaurs, Neanderthals, black holes, Uranus, Bugs that Bonk Beer Bottles, and 8D Music…. unfortunately leaving no time for other science, technology, and geek culture stories from the week.

Worth mentioning… honorable mentions for possible show titles include; “The Cone of Silence”, “Two Tin Cans and a Piece of String”, and “Planetary Flatulence”… but “The Shamozzle” seemed the most apt.
