In this episode, Mike tells us about the strange story of a Priest in Southern France, who apparently happened on a fortune in treasure and went on to spend millions, buying land, building a tower for his library, collecting exotic animals, and renovating the church with some odd additions - but what was the treasure? Listen in to find out more about Rennes-le-Château and it's priest, Berenger Saunière…

We also talk about filling ducks with sponge fingers, misplaced plants, and other good stuff.
