Futility Closet

Futility Closet

Futility Closet podcast is a collection of entertaining curiosities in history, literature, language, art, philosophy, and mathematics, designed to help you waste time as enjoyably as possible. Each episode, hosted by couple Greg and Sharon Ross, spotlights a quirky or forgotten episode from history and presents a lateral thinking puzzle, in which one of them has to unravel an odd situation using only yes-or-no questions. Their website hosts a database containing more than 11,000 items, and more are added each day. You can read them chronologically, by topic, or randomly, using the Random Post button in the sidebar, or you can search for topics.
