Brian and Leon, will blow your mind with their witty and thorough knowledge of everything that you can put a price tag on. Listen every week on your local public radio station.

Synopsis:   Somebody has Brian and Leon stumped, for a change.  Neither could figure out what this strange brass tube with a point on the end was for, but we’ll find out.  If you don’t get that point we’ll talk about art forgery.  You might get that.  If that doesn’t work we’ll talk about a real “shocker” someone has in their possession.
