It's the final episode of Season 1! AGHH!!! This episode's Queer Nerd of Honour is fantastical photographer and galaxy gazer, Kier Birchall. Matt and co-host Nicholson Dye talk to Kier all about black holes, how to look at tiny galaxies, and get way too distracted by pigeon magnetism and weird pronunciations of British towns.

Matt & Belle talk to computer programmer and opera singer, Ashley Mercer to learn what life is like at a true intersection of art and science! They find out why being a computer programmer for a tech startup requires a lot more pen and paper then you think, they attempt some bad singing, and they find out about a great initiative called Scala Bridge that helps bring coding skills to those who need it. Also, Matt manages to get in a reference to his dog.

Episode 07 features some wonderfully familiar faces/voices. Matt is joined once again by Cerys Bradley (as co-host) and Anna Ploszajski (as Queer Nerd of Honour), for a recording of pure lolz. Anna tells us about her work at the Institute of Making & how she made a fire trumpet, while Cerys trials ideas for a new baking show. Stay til the end for some post-credits bonus nonsense content! It's too good to be 'bloopers', but not nearly relevant enough to make the final cut.
