ohhhhh, I left in:
  it "should return an error when passed a string" do
    @audience.stats = 'Market Goblin'
    lambda {@audience.stats = 'Market Goblin'}.should raise_error
  end

when yours is:

  it "should return an error when passed a string" do
    lambda {@audience.stats = 'Market Goblin'}.should raise_error
  end

I've seen lambda before but not sure what it does.
