Welcome to the home of Science Shambles!
Science has long been at the heart of a lot of what we do on The Cosmic Shambles Network. It flows through all our podcasts, live shows, web series and so it was high time for a dedicated Science Shambles podcast. This semi regular show is where we'll be hosting lots of one off long form conversations and the like. Sometimes we're at events and we just want to have a chat with a scientist about their work outside of our live shows or documentaries, and so that's what this podcast is all about. Our CSN contributors and producers just chatting to scientists about science.
As part of our launch night for Dean Burnett’s latest Book, Why Your Parents Are Driving You Up the Wall, we held an in conversation and audience Q&A event with Dean and Stephanie Merritt at the RI in London.Read More
