Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the history of ideas

Customer Reviews

Great format - Great Content

This show is one of the ones I look forward to listening to. The mix of topics is well outside my normal interests and that is what I value most. Having selected topic experts discuss (and slightly debate) topics creates a modest quality assurance type tension that keeps the material on target. In nearly all podcasts I have listened to so far Melvin keeps the experts from creating mutual topic lovefests (except the one about Astrology). Many of these are well worth keeping and listening to again. Excellent. RickW

The best! But could I access your archive

IOT is The Best podcast, period.

Ther are many episodes that U gave listened to over and over again; Newton's laws of motion; Probability; The physics of time; The fire of London.

My only criticisim is that past episodes are not available via iTunes/Podcast; if you miss an episode you can not get it later. If that could be fixed it would allow me to catch up on many more episodes of what is the best podcast of it's type around. Please?

Best multi-discipline podcast around

My favourite multi-topic podcast and one of the few radio-to-podcast shows I subscribe to. Melvin Bragg talks with well-read guests about wide ranging topics from evolutionary biology or quantum physics to the literature of Victorian England or the Siege of Vienna. Wide ranging in scope and always full of well-considered theories and opinions.
