I always feel like there could be an entire series based just on the look between Lix and Randall before she walks away.

And as ever, even when Randall doesn’t know, he knows so why don’t you just tell him, Freddie and Bel, and get it over with?

(Yes, I know, Lix is the one who gets to break the bad news in a scene that cuts out just when the fun starts – oh, series 2 of The Hour, you don’t want us to enjoy ourselves at all, do you?)

You still have plenty of time to join Science Friday Book Club!

Pick up a copy of Tracy Kidder’s The Soul of a New Machine (which we’re selling for 30% off) then discuss it with authors, scientists, and fellow SciFri listeners on-air and online using the hashtag #scifribookclub on August 28th.

Also, tonight (Wednesday August 19th) you can meet the engineers profiled in the book during a Google Hangout at 6pm E.T.
