double yolk eggs are produced by young hens who haven't mastered laying yet. a hen produces an egg every 28 hours give or take 15 minutes ie 6 a week. to make a double yolker there has to be an interruption in the egg producing cycle. the local egg producer to me in the spring gets new hens and for the next 6 weeks to the end of june there are double yolkers https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yolk#Double-yolk_eggs

Standard teabags are 20% plastic, it's how they seal round the edges. Look in a compost pile at the teabag skeletons. Loose leaf tea is really not that much effort. People are so lazy. Give me convenience or give me death.

If you can get over the dodgy sound quality, this is a great episode. Really enjoyed it. I think the annoying laughter lady was removed from being so near the microphone or she passed out. Or was attacked by porcupines. Also well done team on not making an inappropriate French joke when talking about the B.O detecting t-shirt.

not a fan of the live episodes, the audio is bad and the audience laughter is too loud and distracting.

It's quite funny (for a Polish person) when they pronounce Wrocław as something like "racklav" 😂
