Science ! Nerds! It's a perfect intersection!
Really enjoy listening to this collection of science and film nerds talk about where the 2 collide and diverge. An entertaining but also educational podcast.
The best shed-based podcast
When I first heard this I couldn't believe that it was created by a ragtag bunch of nerds in a crumbling garden shed. How do they get such interesting guests? How are they so intelligent and (I assume) attractive? I could listen to these guys all day. What wouldn't I do for a glimpse into that shed...? Epic science fact and science fiction.
A must listen for sci fi nerds!
Want to know the science behind your favourite sci fi films? Then the Cosmic Shed is for you. Knowledgeable scientists, passionate nerds and great guests, it has it all - just wish it was more frequent!
