In this episode, Alex interviews Vijay about memory consistency in parallel architectures and Hugh, in his second try to understand formal semantics, talks to Ohad about operational semantics. It is a shame that Edd did not take the quiz and do the joke, however, Stephen, did and interestingly, he even could break Edd's worst record by not answering correctly any of the questions. In this feature, the notion of "formal semantics" is met over and over again, hence the name "Semantics, Semantics, Semantics".
