Wonking Week: Brought to You By…

In this week’s audio newsletter, we discuss inventive memory tricks and the psychology behind last names. In addition, Emily Badger examines funding models for PBS.

Audio portions for this week’s Wonking Week podcast include:

- The outro from our second story came from an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

- The outro to our third story was a cover of the Ramones’ “Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment."

- The outro to our interview with Emily Badger was taken from a 1988 PBS pledge drive.
