If you want also want to risk venturing into the spirit realm, you’ll learn about 19th century ‘ectoplasm’, the Xbox Kinect and other tech used by ghost hunters and how Rad got a haunted knee playing Just Dance.
Back in the real world Amanda plans to farm mermaids, Rad explains mesh Wi-Fi and Tegan gets historically sinful.
