Episode #20 is up. The paper is:

Schwartz, S. K., W. E. Wagner Jr., and E. A. Hebets. 2016. Males Can Benefit from Sexual Cannibalism Facilitated by Self-Sacrifice. Current Biology DOI: 10.1016/j.cub.2016.08.010.

The puzzle is called “The Rectangular Moat,” and is a slightly modified version of a riddle from Steve Miller’s Math Riddles.
