"Informative and entertaining"
Factual and funny. Brian Cox and Robin Ince are a great double act: the intellectual eye-candy and the other one!
I do not think that I have learned so much in half and hour. I only wish they would produce a longer edit of the recordings.
"Fabulously witty yet intelligent."
Fantastic! A great listen and worthwhile! Kept myself and my ten year old entertained whilst travelling on holiday! Would strongly recommend.
I loved it
wish these two presenters would do more more work together maybe on tv.
"Does exactly what it says on the tin"
A light hearted chat show about science. Some interesting discussion, topics and guests. Nothing outstandingly eye opening but certainly entertaining.
"Must have for science lovers"
Informative, witty and very, very funny. The subjects are always very interesting, and brian cox is brilliant as always
"Amusing and intellectual!"
A good mixture of interesting scientific facts and witty banter, coupled with fantastic guests.
I listen to your pod casts at work,
I have recommended this to friends because it's great to hear science being discussed in a light, yet informative way.
Its a radio series, not a story, but the subjects covered are really fascinating.
They are a great team, quite clearly enjoying their jobs.
It made me think and also inspired me to find out more about science.
Recommend to anyone, even if you are not interested in science.
"Fun and Interesting!"
Great to have on in the background when around the house or to listen to on the bus! Funny and entertaining.
It is a radio programme
This series is very enjoyable to listen to, humorous at times and very informative. I have tried to listen on the radio but have missed several episodes so I have really enjoyed catching up on the ones I have missed. I have also re-listened to several to ensure I have understood some of the scientific facts
