Thank you for this excellent episode of one of my favorite podcasts.

Two interesting topics that get tangled up in this story are "cousin marriage" (which has a whole history and remains legal in most of the world including most of the US) and the British university system, which was and is so different from ours -- no community college, no signing up for just a course or two, in fact no courses as such. It really was an exclusionary system designed for the upper classes, but it's confusing because it uses familiar words (college, scholarship) with quite different meanings.

I look forward to each new chapter!
