Customer Reviews

Speed of growth

If we left earth at the age of 15 travelling at the speed of light for 5 years would we come back 20 and our friends would be much older or is this a lie and if it isn’t how fast would we have to go too match the speed of growth while travelling the vastness of the universe

Education and awkward silence.

As the title would suggest this podcast is a pod of two halves. You will spend half your time learning, and enjoying doing so, and the other half praying Robin Ince will stop begging for laughs while he (quite literally) screams over the top of Brian and the scientific guests with his weekly impression of Brian Blessed.

If, however, you can get past the floor swallowing awkwardness of the polite titters of the crowd as they try to ignore this and focus back on the science at hand, you will find a great podcast that will really get you thinking.

Quite agree with the first line of comment made by Matthew Bell.

I feel there is too much intervention by Robin and I can’t connect and grasp the science topic Brian Cox is trying to explain. It will be great if they have two shows instead of one.
