Episode 233 – Lab Rats

“the direct nature of the experiment” [BRUC]  

It's the third week of the month, and that means it's time for our Exotic Animals feature! When you hear "rat" anywhere near the Sherlock Holmes stories, there are three possible conclusions: the Giant Rat of Sumatra, Ballarat, or...
