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!
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.
