Come and join Dr Helen Czerski, Robin Ince and their special guests for a dinner party of ideas in this new LIVE podcast and web series panel show.
In this brand new series from The Cosmic Shambles Network, in association with The Royal Institution, join Dr Helen Czerski, Robin Ince and two guests for a dinner party of ideas. Each guest will invite the people who formed the ideas that have shaped their work, inspiration, creativity and life. Some may be heroes and, some may be villains, a few may be in-between. They may be alive. They may be dead. They might even be fictional.
Covering a wide range of topics and perspectives from science and culture. ‘They’ve Made Us’ promises to be an insightful and entertaining exploration of some of our most exciting and influential people, both known and unknown. A show that is a celebration of ideas and passionate people.
This new panel show will be filmed and recorded in front of a LIVE audience at The Royal Institution in London.
About the Hosts
Dr Helen CzerskiHelen is a physicist, first and foremost, but she’s acquired a few other labels along the way: oceanographer, presenter, author and bubble enthusiast. She currently runs her own research programme on the physics of oceanic bubbles at University College London. She has presented many BBC science documentaries on a wide range of subjects and is also a regular presenter for the Fully Charged Show, the Cosmic Shambles Network, and hosts an ocean podcast called Ocean Matters. She was one of the 2020 Royal Institution Christmas Lecturers and her latest book, Blue Machine, comes out this summer.
Robin is many things. A comedian, an author, a broadcaster and a populariser of scientific ideas. The Guardian once declared him a ‘becardiganed polymath’ which seems about right. He is probably best known as the co-host of the Sony Gold Award winning BBC Radio 4 series The Infinite Monkey Cage with Professor Brian Cox and co-creator of The Cosmic Shambles Network and its major variety nights like Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People and the Compendium of Reason. He was recently named the Booksellers Association’s Author the Year for 2022 for his most recent works, The Importance of Being Interested and Bibliomaniac.
