Boybandologists Amy and Zoe wind the story back from last week's episode with our Boyband of the Week: the Busted-adjacent Essex based boyband Skandal.

There's big news from the laboratory as we get a makeover (you may have already noticed something different about us) and we launch of our long-awaited, much-demanded merch line!

We test out some more elaborate Boyband String Theory and add two more songs to the Ultimate Boyband Playlist from Hanson and Westlife.
