419 - Accidental Inventions
This week's episode is devoted to accidental inventions. From the match stick, to Play-Doh, super glue, to the humble ice cream cone. It turns out many of our favourite inventions came about purely by accident. But it's no accident that on this episode we are joined by the great Michelle Brasier!
