It is currently held at the Beinecke at Yale University and is named after Wilfred Voynich who was a bookseller that bought it in 1912 from a monastery. An illuminated manuscript carbon dates to the early 1400s, the Voynich is written in an as-of-yet unbreakable code.

- Caroline Walker Bynum is basically a badass in the historical field. Her CV will make you cry tears of envy, but you can check our her Wikipedia page, too.
- Jennifer encourages everyone to read about the mission & history of the Institute of Advanced Study. *Note: Jennifer did not make it super clear in the episode, the IAS is not part of Princeton University, but happens to also be located in Princeton, New Jersey.*
- BBE Bookstore: Paige presents the Egyptian-steampunk-fantasy-murder mystery A Dead Djinn in Cairo, by P. Djeli Clark. Lucky for you, the entirety of this novella is available for free on Tor.com.
- Creatives’ Corner: This week, Jennifer is highlighting video essayist, Lindsay Ellis, and her YouTube channel. Jennifer first ran across Ellis on the PBS YT channel, Storied (also amazing, you should check that one out, too), and didn’t even realize Ellis had her own channel. Jennifer happened upon Ellis’s video on the Omegaverse controversy and has been hooked ever since.
