Is it me or are the weekly teaser questions for the listener getting easier.

For those who don't know about this show/podcast, it's like a cryptic crossword quiz show, mostly culture/literature based, with "expert" panelists representing regions of the UK. I reckon I get less than 1 full question right a week

You may be onto something there, I was straight on the one last week and I'm pretty sure I'm not getting any smarter.

That's it. I've got a few before, but I'm catching up on the podcasts for this series and got the last two in seconds. Could be conincidence.

The actually rounds are bloody hard. Very impressive gen. knowledge, I completely missed the coin connection on the naval theme last episode.

The wren on the farthing was the big clue.  Although that does mean you have to be old enough to have seen one!  (Although I'm not old enough to known them as legal tender)

I love this, a highlight of my week. I have been working on a question myself so here goes;

If 42 is 3, 27 is the fifth of an eighth, Barts best friend is 37, 43 rambles and 34 took on a great enemy, Why was 33 just the 19th?

It was the Simpsons clue that led me to the answer.

No

Correct but you only need Howard

Correct but you only need Milhouse

> 43 Clare Balding

Wrong, think more generic, 

> 34 bit vague but Duke of Wellington 

Wrong but in right direction with military leader

> struggling with the link.

Because it didn't really stand for anything, it was only an initial, and the 19th letter of the alphabet.

Had to look up why he only had S. Wikipedia explains.
