    Milli Vanilli, Marilyn Monroe and Henry VI are amongst the people pored over in this preview of Olly's new comedy-history podcast series 'The Retrospectors' put together especially for Answer Me This! listeners. You can find the show at podfollow.com/Retrospectors In each daily ten-minute episode, Olly and his co-hosts Rebecca and Arion look back at a curious moment from that day in history.

Huge thanks to all of you who sent in lovely messages - and songs! - with your AMT-related emotions and memories. We only included a tiny fraction of your affection in the episode, but know that we read/listened to everything. And maybe wept over it a bit too.
