Biggest Hoaxes Ever: Fairies, crop circles, zero gravity

Welcome to Season 3 of Mysteries of Science! On this podcast we take a look at the strange phenomena and bizarre events that have left scientists scratching their heads and, despite their best efforts, remain well and truly unsolved. 

Since this brand new series is being released on April Fool’s Day, we thought we would celebrate by looking at three of the biggest hoaxes of all time, and try and get to the bottom of why so many people fell for the pranks.
