The uncracked codes in this episode of The List Show include the famous (or infamous?) Voynich Manuscript, the slightly lesser-known Beale Ciphers, and some unsolved potential codes with real implications for criminal justice.

Voynich Manuscript-obsessive Erin McCarthy shares those moments from the history of cryptography and more. You'll learn how famous cryptanalysts feel about some of the most vexing uncracked codes in history and why Kevin James may be a secret cryptography enthusiast.

In case you forgot, The List Show is a trivia-tastic, fact-filled show for curious people. Subscribe here for new Mental Floss episodes every Wednesday: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpZ5qUqpW4hW4zdfuBxMSJA?sub_confirmation=1
