Simon and Dan go on a random wikipedia article and chat about it - it's the Wikicast!




Wikicast 028 - Mehmed the Conqueror

This week we actually talk about the wiki article for a while, and (statistically) incredibly it’s an article one of us had actually been on before! Also this week you hear how terrible Simon is at accents, a meta discussion of online `fame’, a whole bunch of correspondence, and a new fan fiction! What a banger of an episode. ——– THE WIKICAST PATREON: Dan’s forehead Twitch: Vlad the Impaler:...
