24 Dec: The Retrospectors Quiz of the Year

It’s our last episode of 2021, and Olly is putting Arion and Rebecca to the test to see what they’ve learned from our first 168 episodes…

How many copies of ‘Sense and Sensibility’ were in the original print run in 1811?

What (horrifying) ingredients were in Jane Asher’s 1990 ‘Mary, Mary’ cake for children’s parties?

Which four U.S. Presidents had been cheerleaders at College? 

It’s a fight to the death to establish our Retrospectors champion of the year!
