The smallest volume cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds, the figure-eight knot complement and its sister, contain many immersed but no embedded closed totally geodesic surfaces. In this talk we discuss the existence or lack thereof of codimension-1 closed embedded totally geodesic submanifolds in minimal volume cusped hyperbolic 4-manifolds. This talk is based on joint work with Alan Reid.
