Erratum: Figures in the episode should be Minev et al. (2019), not Minney et al. (2009). Our apologies to the authors!
This is the experiment we talk about:

Since the very beginning of quantum mechanics, a debate has raged about how to interpret its bizarre predictions. And at the heart and origin of that debate is the quantum jump or quantum leap – the seemingly miraculous and instantaneous transitions of quantum systems that have always defied observation or prediction. At least, until now.
